What I don't understand is, non-stop or not, why the Hell would you want to come to this Country if you live in Australia….

Been noticing the odd sluggish turnover on the daily driver, wasn't sure if it was a dying battery or starter motor acting up (Seems more inclined to do it when the engine is hot)… did it the other night so I popped another battery on it from one of the other cars and so far normal service has resumed..... will see how it goes. Previously metered out the alternator output under load etc and all seemed fine.

Unfortunately I think i'll be limited to one day due to unforeseen circumstances. Is it still possible to display the car in the ABS area for just a day?

Check the guides, there's a procedure there.

The engine is pretty much bulletproof, the fuel pump however, is not.

Genuine GM element filters can be had for £2.75 if you know where to look and buy in multiples.

Only found the lids to be hard to remove the very first oil change you do on the car after you've bought it, after that it's never been a problem.

No Vectra-C screen is compatible. So don't even begin to investigate that, you'll waste your time.

Although the half CAN Vectra-C screen looks the same, its electronically very different.  The full CAN setup used a completely different Navi HU and screen, such as CD70, which is not compatible with Omegas.

Compatible screens were fitted to Astra-G and Vectra-B (and Omegas of course), compatible NCDC201x were fitted to Omegas, early Vectra-C and Corsas (usually only NCDC2011).

All components in the ring (NAV, CD (separate device, even though bolted to bottom of NAV), screen and Telematics (if used)) need to be in depaired mode.

I've seen that piece of shit o p c o m pair these up successfully, I've also seen it screw them up. I'd entrust to a tech2.

The screen and the unit ncdc must be from the same set?

Yes, unless they already unpaired with Tech II

I dumped two self levelling shocks at the weekend, no idea if they worked as the pump hasn't been running, mind you the shocks were covered in rust so I doubt they were up to much.

Needs a genuine Tech II really, the various 'cheap' code readers are notorious for bricking NCDC's
