    Default My Vectra Elite

    As some of you know we recently sold our Vectra VXR so a month or so ago we decided to also upgrade our Vectra B daily hack.
    We decided to buy this, 2004 Vectra C Elite 1.9 CDTI 150. Mainly for fuel efficency and that the Elite has all the trick bits!





    So far we have fitted a new SRi rear bumper, with twin exit in preparation for a new exhaust (coming soon) you may also notice the parkpilot holes. I will be fitting the parkpilot this week sometime as the wife is getting fed up with the wires and sensors being in the kitchen




    Also fitted colour coded side skirts.



    We also had a front spring brake so took this opportunity to fit a Eibach lowering spring kit and new drop links (thanks to Dan for supplying at short notice and delivering to me!) Didn't take any pics though so sorry!
    I also fitted new standard discs and pads as the old ones were worn (again thanks to Dan!)
    I found a irmscher trim piller kit on Ebay which was duly purchased and fitted, unfortunatly as the rear bits are no longer available we made up our own out of a spare kit.




    Also fitted new pedals, valve caps and tax disc holder (to hold very expensive disc of paper i have just purchased) plus a few other bits and bobs!
    Coming up soon, new cambelt and water pump as nearing 60k also an aircon compresser as this has packed up and its VERY hot with no climate!!!
    Then new exhaust and remap!!
    Hope you like and comments welcome!
