    Default Advice on changing bits please

    Hi all,
    I have just got hold of a 57 plate Vectra Exclusive 1.8 vvti in silver.

    It looks quite nice as it has an exterior pack???? Skirting, front fogs, 17" alloys (?) etc. I am not exactly sure what the exterior pack has. Maybe you can tell me.
    It also has a dab digital radio which is good for me, because I listen to digital channels often.

    I was just wondering how easy it would be to spruce it up even more. i.e changing the lights (front and rear for second hand tinted sri ones).
    Is it an easy job? are there guys on here that help out with these kind of jobs? Are second hand tinted head lights costly? I know the rear tinted ones are quite reasonable price wise.

    Any links to how to do it or anything of interest?

    Thanks in advance

    Kev

    Hi mate, lights are easy to replace. The black headlights you can usually get for around £100 the pair secondhand

    Cool, thanks guys. So what is the exterior pack ? (I think that is what he said). Is it what I listed above?

    I'll go seek the 'how to' section now

    Ok, I did take a snapshot on my phone. I'll photoshop the reg plate out and try and get it on tomorrow if I get time. Busy day tomorrow though.

    I think he must have meant the 'plus pack' !!! Just googled and only found the exclusiv with a plus pack. I think I must have a 6 disc cd too by the looks of it, but still having trouble finding out exactly what it is.

    Ok, I think I have it. I think it is 17" alloys, front fogs/spots? and dab radio (cdc40 opera). Does anyone know if I will be able to operate a trip computer on this unit? or do I have to pay for activation? I believe the unit has a large display and a BC button on the hu.

    Getting the hang of the jargon now, lol. (I think). Still not sure what gid etc mean. I have had a guess, but not going to embarrass myself by typing it
