Ref. my problems with the Steering/ride - The symptoms mainly were a more bumpy ride, every bump on the road seemed over defined. Also the steering wheel felt heavier. Had a lot of problems with main dealers locating fault - many said it was too technical for them which was quite worrying!!?? However, after much experimenting I found that if I raised the steering wheel adjustment it cured the problem - apparently this proved the joint was worn, main dealer then changed the column and it's like new again! It's nice to hear that other have similar problems too, I though it was me just being too fussy! hehehe, Steve.
Ref. Steering fault... Just thought I'd add that I also had the tracking adjusted. It hardly needed an adjustment but it was amazing how a slight change really improved the drive. From talking to people I find that because the GSI has a stiff ride on the road, it really has to be set up perfect to get the smoothest drive.
0-60 is 8.1. If you want performance, try an Astra Turbo, runs rings around the Vectra, being lighter and all.
I have an Astra Turbo with phase 1 remap, and raced a modded GSI Veccy the other day, and to say I destroyed him is an understatement.
The Vectra GSi's 0-60 time is 7.6 seconds, so around a second slower than the Astra GSi.
RE: want to race me. Yeah OK in my 330 ci sport bmw. Why do people say wanna race? You think you have a fast car, but its very mild and only 1 or 0.5 of a second faster to 60 than a 2.0 focus!!! Remember when you writing these reviews that there's always going to be someone with a better car than you. Try to avoid saying its the best car ever or the fastest ever.
I test drove a 330 and thought it was a disappointment compared to the M3. I'm waiting for the V8 M3 to come out then going to order that.
..and this has got exactly what to do with a 2000 Vectra GSi?
Yeah some like to come on here for advice, some like talk about speed. Why don't you look somewhere else if you are not happy.
