    Default Hi guys I'm a Noobie!

    Well, I just had a test drive of a Vectra C GSI today and fell in love, so bought it. Its an 03 plate with 42,000 miles in blue and i paid just £2750 so I reckon I got a good deal!

    Only thing that worries me is the car was last serviced at 33k, so is due a service by my reckoning. I can do the oil, plugs and filter myself but I now realise I need to get the timing belt done too.

    I have done my own before on my old Astra 16v but I ain't touching this one, it looks quite complicated.
    Any ideas on how much I am looking at for belt / tensioner / water pump at an independent garage?

    Cheers
    Dave

    Garage, but it is a close mate of mine, he paid just 2k for it (had it up on forecourt for 3995)- Talk about crazy! I think it was about 20 grand new.

    Any ideas on cambelt price? its the 3.2 from what I can remember.

    Have come from a chipped golf GTI turbo, feels kinda wierd as there is no push in the seat that you get when the turbo starts boosting, just a constant acceleraltion once you hit 2500-3000rpm Certainly impressed though

    Sounds like you got a good deal there mate.

    A service and away it goes...... very fast.........

    Have you thought of putting in to Vx for the service and a check over?? Mate or not there is a steriotype for a reason.

    Hope you enjoy your car and the site, there are lots of very experienced people only too happy to help with any Q's or probs.

    welcome to the site mate..I had major major service, cambelt and a few bulbs for £530 at vx..think they quoted about 350 for cambelt/tensioner fitted which seems ok to me.
