    Smile First real clean for 2010

    Had a day off work yesterday, so instead of sitting around the house or being dragged off to the shops, thought i would give the vec a real good proper clean.

    Good wash first and dry
    Then full Meguirs Clay bar to remove all of the winter grime and tar spots.
    Good quality polish from the chemical guys range
    followed by a full coat of carnuba wax

    The vec not only shines better, but the paintwork now feels as smooth as glass

    Managed to get a couple of pics before the light faded as i had to pop out for the kids

    Really pleased with the look of the car at the moment, one thing i do want an opinion on though.

    Should i change the XP front lower spoiler for the Irmscher one or leave it as is

    suppose it's time i listed the mods here for the car
    Window Tints
    Full VXR XP Lower Kit
    VXR rear difuser
    Irmscher Tailgate roof spoiler
    Stainless Cat back exhaust
    Eibach lowering kit. dropped 30mm
    Led Day light running lights
    HID 50w 6000k light upgrade & white side light bulbs
    Engine remap by VXR performance
    Roof mount TV screen with Infrared headphones
    DVD player & Playstation

    Only thing left to do, is get hold of an Irmscher front grille, and i think that will just about do it

    The car is the Elite model so it comes with every toy that i would need already, so lucky in that respect

    Poor thing has come along way since i bought it 3 years ago. hard to imagine what it would look like standard again

    I think you should leave the grill as is and definately leave the spoiler as is, the XP spoiler is Soooooooooooooooooooooo much nice than the Irmscher spoiler.

    Just needs a nice set of 18's or 19's to finish it off.

    Thanks Maverick, i do like the XP spoiler, but i also like the Irmscher, just don't want it to look to over the top with the Irmscher lower spoiler.

    Looking at a set of 19" snowflakes at the moment

    As you have the complete XP kit, it would be a shame to 'add' a bit of irmscher into the mix.

    A pair of black SRi headlights should also make a huge difference.

    Yes, Maverick is right. Sell me the roof spoiler at 40 quid.

    Nice Estate. Is it just me or anything below 19" is too small for a car like the Estate?

    Not a chance on the roof spoiler Lao, sorry
    If i go for a VXR Grille, then i will go for the SRI lights, but with the chrome grille, i think the elite lights make it all blend in with the colour of the car
