    Default Stage 3, 4 and 5

    Been to CCS yesterday morning and chose the colours for the leather, The bolsters and backs will remain Anthracite and have chosen a nice shade of 'Niagra' grey for the centres.

    I was going to go for the front to back 'rib' effect again, but both my Astra and current Signum had this, so having a similar rib effect, but left to right and more spaced out.

    Charlottes Booster seat will have the same design in the same colours so should fit in well.

    Stage 3 :- The VXR style pack has been priced up ready to go, but going to wait a couple of months to do this as I don't want to do everything all at once. I am going to order it next week and keep it until I am ready.

    Stage 4 :- SRi Dampers and Springs, double checked with a friend from the VX Luton tech centre, and SRi Springs and dampers will bring the car to full SRi chassis and running gear. All normal 2.0 CDTi's have smaller brakes and solid rears, SRi and CDTi 160 auto's have the larger 321mm brakes and vented rears.

    Stage 5 :- Alpine (or similar) roof mounted DVD player and 8.5" Screen.

    Stage 6 :- A little more homework required, but EPC shows a Zenon headlight option without AFL. But still has the same style and LED running lights as the AFL. But initial checks have shown that by fitting these, the zenon light will light but flicker, to overcome this the car needs programming to say it has AFL, this boosts the power to stop the flicker and you have non AFL zenons and LED DRL.

    This has been done and proven on Astra H and it all works.
    That should keep me going for a while.

    You remember the Ģ5000 cost of VXR bumpers.

    How much do you reckon the Brembo brakes are?






    I am going to find out tomorrow.

    I'm guessing they got fed up with people making VXR replicas, or figured they could make a huge profit if everyone bought the Insignia ones as much as they did the Vectra...

    Vauxhall shot themselves in the foot with the Vectra SRi XP. Apart from the front bumper, the rest of the kit was 100% VXR, they they did the XP2 which in effect had the VXR front bumper.

    It was too much like the VXR. What I like about the Insignia VXR is that it really stands out from the rest of the range as it should. The Insignia XP is alot more subtle but does make a difference.

    did you find out the cost of the brembo brakes? Im guessing its a full system including hoses etc, anyone shed any light? Need to know if they will fit my SRI, booked into TMS for 25th March, will be looking at brakes there too after my re-map.

    cheers
