    I have an 05 vectra and the autolights and autowipers were Tech 2'd in for the same price worked a treat so yes your Vectra can be tech 2'd and if you fit the equipment like the auto light switch and the 10 wires in the loom to the light switch and the windscreen sensor and you have the loom for it then it should not be an issue go for it.

    If you can spend a pot load of cash to buy the equipment then yes, Tech 2'ing is having the cars electronic modules programmed it enables you to switch on options and adjust other features. Most are disabled depending on the spec of your car so that they do not give warnings if the hardware is missing as for doing it to your car depends what you want to enable and whether you car can handle the option you want.
