The gearbox is going in my Dad's vectra It's a X-Reg (Facelift Model) 1.8 and has done 90K, the gearbox oil is OK but there's metal filings in it.
Does anyone know somewhere reasonable to source one from, as he took it into a friend at a local garage and he said that we wouldn't get much change out of £1000 !
The other option he's considering is to take it in somewhere and part-ex it against a new model Vectra, because if he spends nearly £1000 getting the gearbox done, and then sell's it in a year or so, he would probably only get about £2000 for it anyway..
Has anyone got any thoughts on this option ? are the new veccies any good, rough price he could expect to get if he part-ex'd against one etc..
Any thoughts much appreciated
