    I found a few on the ebay.co.uk...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Vectr...4#ht_550wt_681

    And
    .
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-OMEGA...4#ht_500wt_924

    Most of those will ship to here if you ask them politely...
    It makes no difference to them if they ship local or across sea...

    Re: oil cooler change NOW!!!!!!!!

    well since the thread stops a few months ago. I am going to think about jumping into this thing. I have a 98 with 40 k miles. (today is march of 2010, some of these posts are several years. old. I have the manuals from a friend, the excellent Vauxhall website with photos, a preference to spend $500 on parts and coolant and gaskets and such as opposed to $300 a month for 48 months on a Nissan Minima, and a garage at my place of work with all the tools etc. So if anyone gets this, shoot me an email and any words of encouragement are welcome. It is a sweet ride what you don't have to worry about the coolant.

    Russ in Bama.

    So I purchased the Oil HX from the dealer, they matched the direct parts price. It is MADE IN AUSTRIA! Hope it works as well as its reputation.

    Any luck? About to do this myself. Problem is I can't seem to find the origination of the leak. The ground right behind the engine is wet, but I can't see under there to mke the final determination if this is the culprit or not.

    I may be wrong but I don't think oil cooler leaks wet the ground. They invisibly destroy your engine with Oil-Cooland mix.

    Perhaps worthwhile checking the Heater Bypass Valve (HBV) area and thread.

    Cheers and good luck.

    Is it closer to the driver side? Are you actually losing oil?

    Can you just throw out the heat exchanger and just bypass it with a hose or tube?
