    Default Hello, first post need some help

    Hi Im new and this is my first post so be kind as as a newbie I may ask some questions that prob have been asked before.

    My vectra is a midnight blue with 80,000 miles, its an LS but its got alloys, the sri rear lights and the 3d carbon covers on the front, the only real downside is the light blue interior which is a pain to keep stain free (any tips for cleaning or keeping clean would be much appreciated) Im also looking to modify the car and any tipswould be again much appreciated.

    I have a 2002 2.0 DTI vectra the problem is of a morning or if the car has been leftsitting for longer than 5-6 hrs I start it up it ticks over then lots of white smoke comes out of the exhaust after this there isnt anymore smoke any ideas???

    There also seems a little drop of power recently too, not lots but noticble. And for some reason the heating seems to take about 10 - 20 mins longer to warm up (I dont know if this is related to it being cold and it just takes longer to heat up because its colder??)

    As I said Im new to this and dont really know alot about cars, but as they say you have to start somewhere.

    Thanks in advance for any replies and Im sure it isnt the last you hear from me

    welcome aboard mate....interior i would look at getting some cover's made for the exact car or see if you can find a cheap interior on ebay from an SRI....
    the white smoke could be a sticking injector (but i might be wrong)
    as for modd's...how big is your wallett...

    de-badge - airbox modd - irmscher door pin's - tax disk holder - sill protector's - tint's etc the list is endless and only as deep as your wallett...lol
