    Default Newbie ... Hi !!

    Hello to all!! Presently own a Vectra B Sri 150 but getting itchy feet. Looking to change in the near future to a Veccie C so have registered on this site to learn the pro's and con's of Veccie C ownership. Have set my heart on a 2.0T for some reason. I would love to get some feedback from drivers/owners of this model...and advice of what to look for, what you think of it or even if you regret not getting the Sri 2.2 Direct.... which I suppose is the other model I could opt for!!

    Cheers
    Ambi

    hi,welcome to the site mate, i joined this week after meeting abyss, i know you are thinking about a petrol but have you considered the diesel? ive had a few quick petrol cars in the past , i bought a v6 cdti at xmas and it is fantastic fast and frugal. i know every ones budget is different but if you can stretch to it i dont think you will be dissapointed.

    Hi welcome to the site. I'd go one better and get a 2.0T Signum, Excellent motor. Of course I'm a little bias

    I doubt you'd ever regret not getting the 2.2 Direct, the 2.0T is a much, much more capable engine (sorry all you 2.2. owners! ) and if you get it remapped....OMG is the answer to that one. You'll see what owners of the BSR remap think of it if you have a look in the Petrol Tuning section.

    If economy is an issue, then obviously the diesels are worth a look at as mentioned by a couple of people - but if performance and sheer driveability is what you are after it has to be the petrol. The remapped 2.0T will give you the same performance of the 3.2 GSi without the extra front-end weight.
