    Default Hi All....Advice please...

    Ive just bought a 2005 (05) Vectra 3.0 CDTI Elite (Auto) and im confused about the facelift and power change dates???? Im not sure if mine is the 177 bhp or the 180 odd bhp model how do I tell??

    Also, i'm thinking about getting it chipped can anyone advise me on what is available for chipping and tuning in the north east and what are the pros and cons

    I had a 330ci BMW before the Vectra and im loving the Vectra more happy motoring to you all

    Pre-facelift is 174 bhp and facelift is 181bhp. I presume your's is a pre-facelift it being a 2005 05.
    BSR possibly do a remap for the 3.0 but i'm not 100%.

    welcome to the site fella, you could go down the road of a tuning box, there is the DTUK box which is suitable and even better, the guy who sells them lives in the northeast. pm me for more details
