Wasn't the BiTurbo meant to have twin exhausts or have Vauxhall made yet more cuts? Then again, maybe I am wrong?
AFAIK the BiTurbo is supposed to get 1 tail pipe, and the 1.6T (200) gets the two!

hi mate,i was wondering if you could post more pictures of the engine and turbo setup?

its just i have the same engine but the single turbo and would like to see how similar the setup is,hopefully in the future i will be able to replace the single turbo for the bi turbo setup and have the car remapped after the warranty is up,so i want to see how similar the routing of the pipes and the placement of the second turbo also as i have looked everywhere and i cant find any decent pictures anywhere! plus my vauxhall dealer does not have one in stock i could look at

thanks i would really appreciate it

Hi - not a lot of point, as the BiTurbo engine isn't a 'Whisper' model, meaning that it is structurally completely different to yours and thus your upgrade would have to be a bespoke conversion by a specialist, which would be ruinously expensive, assuming it's even possible.

On a more positive note... my new BiTurbo has arrived, resplendent in its Silver paint... first one we've had with a sunroof and mighty fine it looks. The grey headliner certainly makes it less claustrophic.

Oh, quick note: sunroof doesn't steal as much headroom as we feared, comfy seating position is easy to achieve.

More pics to follow: I'll start a new thread in the gallery when it's on the road.

Ah - that explains it.... it kinda looks like a see through cover!

With the heater and fan knobs, is this specific to the BiTurbo or a change across all the trim levels?

My car arrived at the dealer today and when I looked inside I noticed that the heater knobs are gloss black. Picking up Weds :D. Also noticed that the trim surrounding the auto gear stick is piano black too, matching the rest of the car which I'm happy about! On the online configurator it showed up as silver! 1.4 150 Turbo too btw.
