    Default New Car: Vectra SRI 150PS!!

    Hey Guys,

    Not posted for a while as ive been busy searching for motors.
    I've just put the deposit down on a 2006 SRI 150PS.

    It's done 26,000 and in pomegranite red, not mad on the colour but it will grow on me.

    Are there any words of advice for things i need to look out for?

    It's covered under Network q warranty for the first year, but having owned a 1.8 SXI, i no things can start to go wrong after 50K plus!

    Cheers folks!

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    Dual Mass Flywheel - Makes a rattling sound when car is in neutral and you light (this could be the throughout bearing on its way out) but if it is a the flywheel rev the engine in neutral and between 1000-2000rpm it will rattle too.

    EGR Valves are another issue too.
