    Default Hi all new on today

    I'm married (happily) disabled, settled in Shropshire and like getting into mischief. Supported the Vauxhall team through BTCC.
    Found the site looking for K & N stockists, had several Vauxhalls, from the Vauxhall Royale Coupe, 1.8 Cavvy hatch, old type Carlton saloon to my (RIP) Omega 2.2CDi, lost last August to oil on a roundabout.
    My wife, after a fit of "what if's" decided I needed something safer and with the help of the local Vauxhall dealer found me one with 6 airbags. Once I found it was a 2008 Vectra SRi (1.9 CDTi 150) I lost my misgivings and went with the flow.
    3 months on I love the car, still trying to persuade SWMBO to let me carry out a few discrete upgrades, K & N air filter, front strut brace, maybe Optimised...........anyone got any ideas?

    Hi Ian and welcome to the forum - if your contemplating a strut brace i
    I suggest you uprate the suspension and shocks to completely maximise the handling experience

    blistein b6 shocks and eibach pro springs would change the characteristics of the car 10 fold and lower it some as well then you may want to fit a strut brace afterwards

    glad your enjoying the car and i hope you enjoy the forum

    regards

    Hmm first car with sport suspension, already struggling with the local potholes, maybe best leave suspension/strut brace then, thanks for info!
    Before health went 30 yr hobby was cars built between 1979 and 1985, had plenty of hands on experience, bit limited now as to what I can still do.
