    Cool Good Morning All! New Owner

    Good morning fellow owners!

    Picked up my 2008 Vectra SRi yesterday and am quite impressed. Traded in my Celica T-Sport with 116,000 miles for my 2008 Vectra 1.8 SRi with 25,000.

    All in all seems good with a few small problems but hopefully the dealer will sort out again next week. I have the leaky boot which I have seen quite a number of posts on and some crazy brake lights which I have now discovered that compensate for bust bulbs.

    The forum has been great use to me so far as I well know they can be for car owners. I still run Fiatboo.co.uk (Fiat Bravo's).

    After the little probs have been sorted at the dealer I will be installing my Pioneer FH P80BT which I still need to read up on before I do. All this CANBus stuff is a little new to me so research will be done first.

    Just a polite hello and thank you for the forum and hope not to be speaking to you all much (in the nicest way of course)

    Yip I know. Black is a proper pain in the rear end. Owed a couple of Black Bravo HGT's in the past and know how bad any surface scratches show up. The new one does need a good polish all over as there are quite a few on it.

    Still - for the price I'm happy. FSH and from a main dealer (ex mobility) for less than 6k

    Smart motor mate....Warning this site is bad for the wallet. First it will be the air box mod which is free. Then a new filter, a de-cat, wheels, exhaust, grill, irmscher stuff. The list goes on n on......

    Noooooooooooooo! Been down that route before with the Brav's and vowed never to do it again. the heartache is far too much to bear when they die. Still miss my last HGT which died over 2 years ago.

    The only mods I'll do will be fitting the sub and amp and possibilty of tinting the rears. Cant afford the rest of it with 5 kids between me n the girlfriend.

    You hope not to talk to us ........... as in , you hope not to need to ask for any help fixing your car much ...

    you don't need a broken car to visit the site ...

    you can pop in any time to say hello or ask opinions or advice on anything , maybe even read the odd joke or two .

    Members are a varied bunch with different jobs and knowledge ..

    There are members on here that have had advice from child support to garden weeds to cameras to fishing .

    I am quite a new member ( about 2 or 3 months i think ) but have been warmly welcomed , it's like a second family , sometimes with the arguing too .

    Maybe you could update us with the jobs to be done on your car or any changes you do .

    i hope you enjoy the site like i do , Best Wishes .

    I know all of that too well! Still on the Bravo site for random advice on absolutely anything. Loads of people with different backgrounds who know all sorts of ****

    the not to talk was aimed at a broken car
