Vectra GSi's

The 2.5 V6 versions...

Im thinking of getting one for my next car, but i dont really know what they are like. A guy near me used to have one, and it was tres tres quick.. They are 190bhp standard, and regal do a supercharger conversion for 4k so i was thinking that would be a wicked sleeper car

Steve...

How much was your GSI mate???

Im tring to find some good prices, and what bhp are they...

I can only find the 170bhp ones. Im sure there were 190bhp versions...

Im gonna ask my mate who used to have a "Super Touring" version, see what he can do for me He works for a used Vauxhall place..

My bro used to have one, great car, quick and effortless compared to any smaller Vauxhall. They sound great as well, electric seats, good looking as standard, good stuff.

Downsides, the gearbox is very long and makes the car not want to travel at 30mph and back seat passengers don't get a good deal - there's no electric windows and loads of road noise.

Cheers Ian,

Well i never really have too many people in the back anyway. (the seat will be far back to get me in )

Im gonna get a load of Dynamat Extreme anyway, so should blaock out most road noise..

I want to tune it up so its around 300bhp.. would be quite a sleeper then

Watch out BMW drivers
