    Default Aluminium

    Someone mentioned the other day that the Vectra c bonnet is aluminium, are there any other panels made of ali as well?

    Also...................

    I got a puncture this afternoon and have had to put the silly spare wheel on the car. I am working at 4am tomorrow and I travel over 60 miles there and back. I can't get a new tyre until Tuesday. I will only do less than 50mph but is there a maximum distance involved in using the spacesaver wheel?

    Thanks for any help

    Never used one but if it's new there is plenty of tread. Think someone did a fair few mile in a thread some time back could be worth a search hth .................

    Ive used one a few weeks ago, had it on the
    front ! not fab, but it will get you out of trouble !
    if you have to do the miles and its a front tyre
    that has the space saver, i would swop it and
    put it on the back !
