    Default My cars gone .. .. .. ..

    and I've now got this on my drive -







    1.9 CDTi 150 SRi Tiptronic. I now know why so many of you guys love the auto box on the vec. It's a beautiful gearbox and is very smooth. I've put the tuning module on and to be honest it doesn't feel much different from standard, but I only had a very short drive home this evening in it. I'm going to try and post up a comparison, but it's difficult as my car has 19's and this is on standard 17's.

    My car produced a hesitation on the way to PVS on Saturday, so it's in at my local dealers. Tech2 returned a loss of pressure in the common rail. I'm wondering whether a remap may be my best option when it comes back out!

    So far I'm very impressed with the facelift and the auto box is a peach.

    Reading Alex's post I'm assuming it's a courtesy car!

    I'd love to even get a corsa! My local dealer has only got 3 courtesy cars, but they've got 6 or 7 ramps. So the chances of getting one in the first place is pretty slim! And, in their wisdom they've decided to start selling the Chevrolet models (due the the GM link i guess) so courtesy cars come in the form of a 0.8 litre Matiz! (they were plop when daewoo made them!) I'd love to get a corsa let alone another vecra! Especially a bad boy one like that! Its true, It really isn't fair!

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Hesistation, by that is this covered by it. around 2k or 2.5k constant throttle it suddenly lapses as if u just backed off the throttle for a half second of less and then its fine again?
