    It's from LMF. There is no drop in Radio reception either.

    Plans.....tints, and a remap when funds permit

    It's great to drive. Very smooth and nice and comfy. The Regal or 888 are the ones I've been looking at. I like the look of the Regal one because of all the extra protections that are in there, such as minimal boost until engine reaches temp etc.

    Oh, and some Eibach springs as well. They were a great upgrade on the Astra, and it's apparently worth doing the same on the Vectra as well from what I've read.

    I had a 1.9cdti vectra a few years ago
    had DPF probs a lot of the time
    the BSR remap Flash tool is good on them
    dont use a Box as the will damage the car
    they like to eat rear dampers an springs

    I've got a t-tuning box at the minute, only had it on for 1 day, and it's being sold on Thursday. I've had a look at the BSR re-map, and it does look pretty cool. Also found out while de-restricting the air box today that it's already for a K&N panel filter fitted.

    DPF isn't fitted to the later models, just the estates from what I can gather, or Vaux have upgraded the ECU software to sort the issues with the regen on them?
