I have had one for over a year and it has never let me down, and now it is up for sale, feel free to take a look at it on ebay (item number 261106716016) and I think it would do you proud. Fully Serviced and all the history. Wonderful for its age.

if i was you i would get 2ltr or 1.8 sri converted in to msd or gsi v6 which i did and its awsome and the sound just like merc 6.3 with performance air filter on it and remember to put courtney flywheel in it which i did and the bhp comes to 200 and the torque is unbelievable,even nissan 370z could come next to it when i had the run with it if you want the conversion i know the guy,can do it in 6 days.

Bit late reply, i doubt you would get insured at our age, i'm paying £400 fully comp and i'm 40 with 15 years no claims.

The GSi only came as a 2.5 and the msd are getting rare as only 500 were built.

On a good run motorway and a bit of town and single cariageway my GSi will avg 32mpg but round town as you love the sound of the V6 i'm lucky to get 15mpg

all depends if yours is msd (phase 1) or phase 2 non msd.

If its msd on the plenum chambers you will have the msd badge or ecotec if its phase 2.If your luckly enough to have a msd there will be a badge under the bonnet saying what car number out of 500 it is.

Only 500 phase 1 msd were built, but in whole a couple of years back there was only about 1000 2.5 GSi this includes both phases left on the road.

“Sturdy, reliable, sounds great with induction kit fitted !”

Written on: 10/03/2012 by v6roar (1 review written)

These are a good solid motor. I still get the same buzz seeing mine on the driveway as i did when i saw my first one back in 98. I've had my 99' saloon for 6 years now. It has virtually sailed through every MOT. It gets me to work and back everyday,it gets me gigs around the country, it takes my family on holiday, it carries my drum kit, it fits my child seat and all other baby related paraphenalia with ease. It still goes well, i managed to pretty much eliminate the infamous flat spot by… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2010

hello comment on your Vectra GSi,
<br/>1.Are you sure you have a GSi and not a 1.8 with a GSi badge?
<br/>2.Have you checked the v6's Manifolds for cracks as this leads to power lose
<br/>3.Check under Engine Oil filler cap for a whiteish sludge, if its there your Cylinder head gaskets blown leaving you with no power and a overheated engine.
<br/>4.Get a Compression test on all 6 pots as bores/valves or piston rings may be given you less compression
<br/>5.Check timing,redex your fuel lines & injecters, new plugs/leads, oil&filter change with good fully synthetic oil and try using Shells Opimax V-power petrol
<br/>6. check your dash for any warning lights and try a dianostics at local garage for removal of fault codes(sometimes these fault codes tell whether you have crank sensor/cam sensor faults which will reduce the cars power by 50%) so not to damage engine.
<br/>

ive owned my gsi for almost half a yr now. had been after one for a long time and i hasnt disapointed. managed to get hold of a black face lift saloon (exactly what i was after). sent it to get the bodywork back to like-new, gave it a heavy duty service and it drives like a dream. it gives me 3 types of grin, looking at it parked up, driving it and being seen in it. gonna be spending a good bit of cash on it over the next few years on some SENSIBLE modifications, lightweight flywheel, bigger… Read Full Review

Owned a GSI Vectra for about 1 month now.

Brilliant car if you can keep up with the juice it eats.
