http://www.putfile.com/drrollo I'm in love but, the service light has come on and the airbag symbol is showing, ggrrrrr any ideas? (as shown in picture) I remember hearing about a loose cable under the seat or something? Also are these cars ment to be loud, it's got a k&n induction kit on it, (which i want to remove asap) seems to GROWL under acceleration.

Thats what i was thinking, how about if i took the battery lead off and left the ECU to reset, or would that completly mess it up?
 
  Vectra :(
Same on mine. i think i am just going to take the resistor route and solder that on. 29p from maplins :)

It'll be the passenger seat airbag connectors, just have a fiddle with them and it should sort it out. Otherwise hows your soldering ? :)

Oh my, just been for a "casual drive" in her, i love this car!!! Thanks for the help, the lights off now, but if it happens a lot i'll replace the connector, also my gear stick creaks when changing from 4th to 5th any tips on that?

Superb mate, to say i'm a little jealous would be an understatement!...Well done!

Just hope I can find one as nice and as cheap when I go looking next week! :S

Are you going to look at getting the cambelt changed any time soon or are you gonna wait for 78k?

That's the only thing that's worrying me about buying one of this age...but if I can get a good deal then the money I save can pay for it! :D

I'm a little worried about the cambelt, but i know someone who is a mechanic who should be able to sort me out as i don't want the engine to knacker. Trust me buy one though, so pleased with mine :)

Thats been lowered as well by the looks of it. Do you know if its coilovers or springs? And how much back and front? Looks just about perfect.... Nice one :)

Hmm i was thinking the same, looks low to me to, as far as i know it's all standard apart from a k&n air filter (i'm after an orginal) i'll get her up on some ramps this weekend and have a good look.

You should be able to tell just by looking between the tyre and the arch. The std springs and dampers are all black. Modded ones will be coloured.

Hope you enjoy ur car anyway!
