    confused Vectra 1.9 cdti 120 or 150???

    I am looking at buying a vectra 1.9 cdti sri 05 plate (pre face lift)

    When doing insurance quotes it says 120bhp for that number plate yet the garage is selling it as a 150bhp model.

    How can i tell which one it is?
    is there any differences i can spot under the bonnet or will it say somewere? would it be on the logbook if i asked them to show it me?

    you can tell by looking under the bonnet... there are pic's on here somewhere showing the differences (oil filler cap indifferent places)

    150 has filler cap on the right

    My V5 says CDTI 150.

    Given that the Ti on the back is silver and the insurance quote came back as 120 I'd say it's almost certainly a 120 - I could imagine someone putting a red Ti on to make a 120 look like a 150 but not the other way round!

    Why don't you tell them that you think it's a 120 and let them do the work and prove it to you? That'll show how much they know about Vectras too!

    Dave

    Edit: I guess perhaps it's been remapped or has a chip to increase the power output. The dealer I bought from was suggesting a 120 with a remap as an alternative to getting a 150. When I checked with the insurance company it would work out more expensive (even though the dealer said they didn't think it'd make any difference). I decided I'd rather hold out for a factory 150!
