    Default Three people, two vectra's, one meet!!

    Been in Manchester for the last couple of days on a course. Took the opportunity in meeting with another member, Mike (MCD). I filled the car up with V Power Diesel and gave it a quick wash as it had covered 550 miles and the rear of the car was starting to look more grey/black than panacotta. Mike met up with us whilst I was washing the car. We then made our way to a pub on the A6. On our way there, we came across a dual carriageway and had to see what our cars were made of. Both cars have the same engine spec - 1.9 CDTi SRi 150bhp with an EDS remap. I also have a K&N panel filter and custom built de-cat exhaust (not sure if you have a filter Mike). Both our cars pull the same but when we got to ** mph, my car still had a little bit more which is understandable as I have 8bhp and 28lb/ft torque more than Mike. Both of our cars are XP NAV and lowered on Eibachs 30mm. They are also a different colour from your everyday black or silver .
    I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the photo shoot and 70 mph driving .
    Nice to meet you Mike and love the car!!

    That dual carriageway doesn't happen to be the Chapel/Whaley Bridge bypass by any chance?

    That's a great 'testing' road.

    There's some great pubs round there too.

    Thanks for all the comments. I quite like this picture. I must have been doing a couple of mph but it looks fast and cool lol.

    It's a shame that Vauxhall didn't do a final send off for the Vectra. A top spec 1.9 CDTi SRi with all the extras that Mike's car has got plus the sunroof from mine.
    Just out of curiosity, has any of the oil burning 150bhp+ members ever tried their luck with a Honda Civic Type R (198bhp)? Someone I know swapped their Mitsubishi Legnum for a Type R and he was slagging off my sh*tty diesel grandad car and I said I could give him a run for his money. He laughed at me
