    Default Noob car pics, & a few questions !!!

    Hi All,

    Just collected my 'new to me' 2006 Vectra 1.9 CDTI Auto Estate, with 35k on the clock, to replace my 2003 Astravan Sportive.



    The first thing I did was the privacy glass on the rear, & a very light tint on the front to blend in.

    I also replaced the standard radio, with my beloved Blaupunkt DAB radio. I have used the standard antenna, with an active DAB/FM splitter, which for £20, works perfect !!.



    I also drove a round trip of 550 miles to collected the 19" Snowflakes, which I reshod with Falken 235/35/19 all round.

    Its going in on Friday to have the Pi -30mm Spring/shock kit fitted to lower the car a little. Just wondering if 30mm will be enough, & if anyone has gone for more, & how it has effected the ride?

    I love the space, & the comfort, & don't want to go over the top, but might just add a bolt-on ecu upgrade module, & would be keen to hear if anyone has fitted one, & how its changed performance?.

    Will post pics of lowered car over the weekend.

    Also I have been told that I will be unable to fit the VXR style pack 1 onto my 'Life' 06 Vec C Estate !!!. Is this true ?, if so, is there a workaround ?

    Bits I wanted are here:

    Sorry, I cant do the clever underline link thingy yet, but am working on it

    Has anyone colour coded the original skirts etc, I guess that would give the same effect!!

    Cheers.

    I have gone -45mm which I think suits the Vec IMO, but I think you'll be happy with the 30mm drop.

    It displays time/date/temp, but not any radio info.
