Oh yes. Not sure (as haven't checked yet) but think it's the 120, rather than 150. There's a creak when steering, hoping that's just a broken spring. Spare set of (17") SRi alloys came with, but the treads are shot or they'd have gone onto the 150 hatch and I'd have kep the horrible ones on the estate for spares as they have new tyres.

Spring snapping is definitely a Vauxhall thing.

 

SnrYoof's Signum decided to snap its off-side front spring while parked up between a commute home and the next morning. The list it had was quite spectacular.

That's a weird sticker - anyone know why it would have such a thing?

Vectra estates are handy things when they work - got to be getting on for the biggest available estate boot

RE the sticker, ex-plod maybe?

Perhaps a warning when sold off that it has gun cabinets that are normally only fitted to Elite trim, despite being a Design or whatever?

Our ex fire service vectra c had one of those stickers . The only extra equipment / features I found were
1 - rock hard ride
2 - quick break springs
3 - different warning light every day pack

I looked at the bootspace in the mondeo - vectra has far more - the mondeo looked only marginally bigger in the back than a focus.

Ours has the " what fault code this week?"pack

Going to hazard a guess here at it being like most Vectras, ex daily rental/fleet cars, which if anything like the "Energy" spec one my old man had from 7 months old had a graphic info display with multi function trip computer and warning messages and check control with buttons on the wiper stalk which was never even an option on the Energy spec, but all the ones in that batch supplied to the fleet hire company had them, no other ones did, they just had the basic TID display. Also none of the ones in that batch even had a 12v socket next to the ashtray, some Vectras had the cig lighter, others the 12v under the flap, this just a blanking plate but you still got 2 Ashtrays weirdly.

And...the 406 has moved on. I'll miss that car, it's been brilliant and pulled me out of all kinds of trouble. It's jump started other cars, towed them back and hauled my fat arse all over the shop without complaint.

Spring snapping is definitely a Vauxhall thing.

And a Ford thing.  And a Renault thing.

Just checked on the MOT thing online and the 406 went straight through a test this morning with no advisories. I sold it to a local trader who needed a motor with a tow bar for a couple of weeks, I bet he's a happy bunny now!
