    Default Magnetic Oil Drain Plug

    I had one of these fitted to my old Mini. Fair enough it was an engine/gearbox combo but I had a 'Magnetic Oil Drain Plug' fitted & boy did it attract those little bits. My question is does anyone have one fitted to their Vectra, if so how effective is it & is it worth the investment.

    Check out this OilDrainPlugLink ...........

    I've got one on my motorbike and it is amazing how many shards of metal are stuck to it at oil change time

    good find there! I will if someone else does .. well.. when it comes around to service time anyways. Got to be better than shards floating about on in ur crank shaft.

    Do they do OHM results on civi cars? I know in the army we get to collect OHM samples (oil health monitoring) which can pick up even the slightest bit of trouble with the main workings of your engine by the extra bits in ur oil... be handy if you could do this with your normal car too?

    Used to have one fitted to my golf gti turbo. Bought it from Awesome GTI in manchester and it came with about 10 bronze washers, They are really good at keeping the nasty bits out of the engine.
