    The lack of cruise control in my car is a pain in the arse...

    The amount of vibration on tick over - blame that on the powerflex engine mount.

    I do around 300miles a week like wise..

    On a average week I may do 10 miles? More if it's raining and I have to use the car though

    My car has a annoying squeak from the O/S/R wheel, not sure if it's brakes or a wheel bearing though

    I need to get my hands on a working Veccy C cruise control motor.

    What part is it you need exactly Will?

    When I went to the local scrappy the other day there was quite a high specced Vectra in there. I may be going back next week at some point so could have a look if youd like?

    I do between 10 and 200 miles
    10 to work and back, but up to 200 when going out at weekend etc.

    Most annoying for me is a squeaky seat, old cloth used to do it, now my leather has started as well. Must be because i'm a fat *******
