    Smile first time vectra c owner

    hi guys just got an 03 plate silver sri 2.2 with service history 80000 on the clock.

    also still have my 1999 t reg 2.5 gsi msd vectra too which is in the garage(head gasket/timing belt ).

    anyway think i will keep the vec c now as its newer and a bit more modern.

    pleased to meet you all

    few questions...

    wheres best to get service done glasgow area(local dealer wants £198 for full service) needs it as last full service was 30k ago and 2 years

    car came with a vdo stereo and is single din. whats my best bet to get a standard double din (cd30 is it???) and are they hard to fit.

    and also got a front brake wear light on where would i get brakes and are they easy enough to fit myself??

    paid a decent price for the car so dont mind putting a few things up to scratch to prolong its life.

    thanks again guys

    hi m8 and welcome

    service is best done your-self
    radio for the 2003 is a cdr2005,ccr2006,ncdc range
    brakes again are easy for the front but will need a torx bit for the calipers,(rears need a rewind tool)

    the best radio is the ncdc2013/15 which is satnav
    your looking at about £350+ for the complete head unit and screen (secound hand)
    the cdr2005 are around £50 with code.
    the ccr2006(multi cd) are around £80-£100
