I sold my old 1.9 CDTi Vec earlier this year and bought a Jaguar X Type diesel for my sins.

What a disappointment! Not a good buy, and the Jag dealer were appalling - actually failing to put the front suspension back together properly after doing some warranty work on the clutch. Which led to the wheel coming off!

Amyway, long story short. I'm selling it and fancy another 2006 onwards Vectra, probably a petrol 1.8 VVT with the Sri spec.

Is there anything I should look out for on this engine? I know the springs are pretty much likely to snap (!) but what about the engine?

And what sort of real life MPG is anyone getting? I got 50mpg out of my old Vec, and 40 out of the Jag so whats likely out of a petrol Vec?
