    Smile Vectra Elite

    Hi Guys
    I have just purchased a Vectra Elite 1.9 CDTi 2008.
    Am loving it at the moment but do anyone have suggestions on how to get more MPG and where to get the Alloys refurbed at a reasonable price?
    I intend to keep the car for a while. Also the brake calipers are letting it down at the moment with rust showing through any suggestions?

    Looks good, will see later in time when the savings build up again. I will try the calipers myself with some hamerite. As for the alloys will shop around locally hopefully should not cost more than £50 a corner.
