    Newbie reluctantly gets a 2.2i Elegance...

    Hi from a newbie ...to one and all. I have just purchased a 2.2i Elegance...1 owner, FSH, 19.5K miles on an 03 plate. It's absolutely mint, except for the emissions light which comes on now and again. Looking at other posts, it could be a dodgy lam sensor, or driving too hard from cold. I haven't tried the battery disconnection yet and if it keeps happening, I'll try it. What I'd like to know is if you lose anything if you leave the battery disconnected for 30mins?

    Great forum btw...very easy to register and nicely laid out.

    Welcome,....

    Make sure you have the stereo code before you disconnect...might be in your documentation

    I would'nt be reluctant about the 2.2 ... by all accounts a great engine for the zaffy

    It's a good car, but I've had 3 turbo's in the past and this just seems like a symbol of me getting old (even though I AM old!).

    Hello and welcome.

    I drove a 2.2 a few weeks ago, impressed as it went quite well.

    Thanks for all the replies...unfortunately, the GSI was just a bit too much. The missus wants a new bedroom, kitchen, front door.........

    The 2.2 is a good engine for the size of car...a big improvement on the Honda Shuttle I had for a while. Hi mystery machine...another bexleyheath member..I'll keep a lookout for your GSI.

    My mates got a 2.2 Vectra, he loves it and i'm sure you'll love yours too

    Welcome to the forum from a fellow noob. I didn't want to get an MPV either so i think we chose the best model!
