    Finally, i'm back!

    Hi guys,

    I used to post a lot here a few years back when I had a 2L SRi. Been driving an Escort through Uni but now i've finally got back in the Astra game with a 2.2 SRi . The GSi was just a little out my reach so I thought i'd go with the 2.2 and am well happy . Put the deposit down today, pick her up tomorrow.

    Factory sat nav, FSH, 1 lady owner, runs sweet.

    Just a few qs...

    1. When is the cambelt due for change on the 2.2?
    2. Does anyone have the nav in the car (think it's 1100 model), is it any good?

    2.2's are chain rather than belt driven, so just check your oil feed is alright and not blocked (there was an issue with that unsure of the ins and outs though) Nice looking car though

    Really? So there's no need to change the belt at 40K or anything like that?

    Cheers

    Indeedy - one of the 2.2 lads will be along shortly to give you the ins n outs im sure, good motor though, just vaux / opel are stupid for not bringing the entire range over from the states

    Welcome Back

    The chain problem only affected the early 2.2, so with your's being a 53 plate it well outside the affected range

    Nice car - you don't see many red 2.2's, and you've got the prodrive kit thrown in too

    Sat navs not too bad mate got it in mine...

    Only complaint is that it doesnt search by postcode just town and road name.

    Also you wont want to upgrade the head unit cos you'll be losing the sat nav. Shit sound system / built in navi.... tough call!
