  2. Hi all returning to the fold after a few years away. Picked up a Corsa burg and just getting back to the Vauxhall scene. Looking forward to it.

  3. Hi Guys and girls. I've just joined up. I've owned my Monaro for about five years and finally got it up to a standard where I can enjoy the driving and proudly show it off too. It's a lonely business owning one of these beasts. Spare parts are scarce and can be pricey although consumables are quite reasonable. A few specialist in the UK can help here. Commonly people think the Monaro is a gas guzzler but being 5.7 litre V8 its a lazy lump which can poodle along at 45 mph at tick-over under one thousand revs or return 30 to 40 mpg on motorways. I would love to learn of other owners in or near Wiltshire area. All the best. Phil

  5. I have previously owned a SEAT Leon for 7yrs and bought my first Vauxhall. Impressed so far with the leg and height room but getting used to the software etc and gadgets is challenging so it is work in progress at the moment. Will need to get used to many new things compared to the Leon. Having a manual Crossland instead of an electric automatic Crossland in the present climate l think is a positive.

  7. Hi Peter.....welcome to the Club Always good to try to keep as many classics on the road as possible. The only thing I would say to be aware of on the Carltons is rust.....it creeps in and definitely worth Waxoyl it for the winter (even if storing it in a garage) and this should preserve it for many years

  9. It is a nice looking car, and clean for its age. I too have had a variety of Vauxhalls over the years. HB Viva, Cavalier SRi, and now on my 2nd mk4 Astra G. I also drove a mk1 Carlton, and a mk2 Carlton as taxi's back in the late 80's.

  12. It certainly is a good set up. Most vehicles I've had in the past have been mid to high 30's, and the fuel was cheaper. And I was always impressed with getting 36+ .

  13. That is an exceptionally good MPG Andy, especially given the engine size and automatic transmission....Vauxhall certainly got the combination just right to return such a high MPG

  14. Well after a good run to the North Norfolk coast, and back. It was 125 miles, which worked out at, 49.4 mpg. £20 of E10. Can't complain

  15. Hi, I had the same hose damaged and could not fined a Vectra one, but I found a diesel Astra fit (cannot remember the year) 2001 I think, with 15mm cut of the end. Regards Steve

  16. Not sure exactly but I would imagine there would be some aftermarket parts available for the VXR vauxhall range if you could measure the length and diameter and contact some GM tuning companies to see if compatible with any other models

  18. Thank you. Yes, I understand this could be an issue, but the doors are locking/unlocking perfectly. The offending switch is seemingly not closing correctly and sending feedback to the CPU (hence, dashboard illumination and warning sound…….further to which, the warning sound can be silenced by activating the ‘Child Locks’ in the rear doors to the ‘on’ positions, the dashboard lamp remains illuminated though).
