  • Bad vibrations?

    Hi there, i picked up my second hand Astra VXR last weekend (from a Network Q Vauxhall dealer). But i've started to notice vibrations through the wheel (1st and 2nd gear approaching 2000rpm). I've driven a couple of VXRs recently and i can't remember the vibrations being anywhere near as noticable. Is this normal, or could there be a problem with the exhaust? It has done about 14,000 miles Any suggestions welcome.

        thanks Dave - it's on the standard 18in rims. The thing is, it's supposed to have been checked over before i got it. I've been looking on the forums and seen some posts about the manifold and bolts coming loose. I was wondering if that might have something to do with it?

            Normaly you can accelerate out of the vibration if its the wheel balance, ie if it vibrates at 60mph when you get to 80mph it goes away. BTW Welcome and get it back to the Garage.
