    Default My replacement Vectra

    Well here she is as photographed after having the DMF replaced and just prior to MOT and an appointment with the Bodyshop.

    Taken Saturday morning I had time on my own to just wander around her and take some pics.

    Plans are as per the last one. Refit :-

    The Aero wipers
    Insignia washers
    Clean and paint calipers
    Refit Xenon's
    Refit Diadems
    Rear parking sensors
    Mudflaps

    detail the body as both weather and time allows prior to winter.

    Thanks Dez, I do like them in black and despite having the world on a forecourt another Vectra was all I ever wanted, but had I been able to get a Panacotta one then I would have changed colour but there wasn't one close enough in the time I had.

    It was done by a mate who has a copy but basically

    go to Instruments then measuring blocks and the mileage shows
    then go to ECU and again select "measuring blocks" and on the right you will get a reading in Km's this time that should be about 60% higher than the odometer reading.

    I believe it is as simple as that!
