    Default Hi guys noob here 2.2i or 2.2DTi??

    Well as the title says really! iv just sold my Veccy b 130 today so this weekend i'm getting a replacement but not sure on which engine whether it be the 2.2DTi SRi or the 2.2 petrol SRi, are all the horror stories really true that iv heard about the petrol engine (cracked heads, chains snapping, etc etc)

    Also does anyone know where i'll find a Vectra VXR boot lip on the cheap??

    have got some nice plans for whatever i buy...

    Cheers Lee..

    I have the 2.2DTi LS - to be honest my description of it would be a "work-horse" engine, powerful enough, but the CDTi seem to be the sporty ones in my opinion, I could be wrong though...

    After reading ALOT of threads on here think i'm going to steer clear of the DTi and go for a hassle free petrol maybe the 1.8 or 2.2 SRi (none vvt/direct)
