    Default New elite and weekend GSI

    I retired my GSI from daily abuse last week as i am currently commuting 90miles a day and in a 215bhp V6 it was getting quite expensive. Also the crappy roads and weather were making keeping it immaculate very difficult.

    So i took the dive and eventually gave in to owning a diesel and bought this 2008 57 plate 1.9 CDTI elite. It has 37k on the clock and comes with a few options like 18" alloys, electric sunroof, parking sensors, bluetooth etc.







    And here is a few pictures of my pride and joy, which has been put into hibernation

    I said i wouldnt touch the new diesel as i only wanted it as a daily commuter.

    But my wanted list is already growing:
    . SRI headlights and tail lights
    . Irmscher grill
    . XP2 bodykit
    . VXR steering wheel and gear knob
    . Twin sri exhaust

    Already sourced a Xp2 front and rear bumper, with parking sensor holes

    Doubt i will forget about the Vec B, i love the new vec C don't get me wrong but it doesnt make me smile like the GSI does everytime i jump in it.

    Husky! I believe he bought them for his new vectra c but he found a genuine VXR kit i believe so these were surplus to his requirements.

    Just need to get some side skirts and a rear spoiler to finish the kit off oh and your irmscher grill
