    Rumble at the rear could be a diff issue. Get it looked at because when they go they go in a big way.
    Diff not making any other noises at all and th judder is very intermittent at best. Thought it may be low fluid level so gonna change it out anyhow. Got some Castrol to change it with.

    I'm really this close to taking my Vectra VXR off the road and getting one of these...but I really should wait until next year and get an R8.
    Did you get your one for good money? What's the mileage?

    I paid £10k for mine. Now got 87k on clock but runs fine. AP Brakes, rip shifter and miltek etc. Does have Romano lpg but I don't use it. They really are a fun motor and pulls well through the entire rev range in every gear

    As for my previous post regarding oils: monkfish have supplied all the goods for me and it's in the garage having all fluids changed :-)
