So, I went to visit a 2.5 V6 Vectra in Wales - long story, but the seller ended up falling in love with my Astra and we ended up part exchanging!!
I do miss the astra on the handling and size front, as this vectra is an absolute bugger to park and manouvre! But the power is nice
Anyway, it's got a very nice induction kit and de-cat GSi exhaust setup, but she is too loud! I took it to my regular garage who are performance specialists and they said the exhaust would only make a little difference on the sound as would the induction kit. I'm sure most of the noise is coming from the exhaust, although the garage said it's mainly the V6 engine making it!
So, is the 2.5 V6 engine really that loud!? Or is it just me?
I'm too used to my quiet little 1.6 purring away
