    The 2.8 seems to be a pretty bullet proof lump so far, although I think i've heard a couple of issues of the header tank cracking from the heat of the turbo.

    Other than that then just the usual Vectra/Signum gripes to check for.

    Good luck with it, you'll love it.

    I have 06 facelift 2.8T Elite, the engine has been perfect now 70K ish, had gearbox changed for possibly water in transmission fluid but I don't think dealer was 100% on that, I did have the header tank failure which was discovered after the gearbox change, the weeping from the header tank could have been the coolant loss that I was experiencing.

    Still new auto box out of Vx at 57K can't be a bad thing hopefully.
