    Thumbs up Vectra C estate (12)

    recently bought myself a vectra C estate CDTI (120) am im looking to do a few things to tweak the appearnce im going to order new alloys and tint the rear windows. Then im looking at lowering it as it currently sits quite high.
    1) Can anyone recommned what to get for lowering (im quite new to the scene so not to clued up....yet!)
    2) im thinking about a few simple engine mods to improve performance slighty i.e a chip or remap. again any advice or posts of your experience would be much appreciated.
    And finally im living in the oxford/swindon area does anyone know of any meets etc in this area??

    Cheers all for your help much love paddyvectra

    what model do you currently have... most folk tend to go down the eibach -30 drop although for me it's not practical workwise...
    Look for a reputable remapper in your area, one that does not over egg the claims & one that can do the job on an rr

    My estate is on B8's and eibachs (which can be bought as the B12 kit). I would definately recommend it!

    Depends how low you want to go with it. I want to drop my estate about 40mm and "almost" nobody makes springs that do that for the estate, loads for the hatch but not the estate. I finally found H&R that do 40mm lowering springs for it and will be getting those when I have the money spare.

    Loads of choice if you only want to lower it about 30mm (Eibach, Pi, Spax etc etc).

    If you want to go lower than 40mm then your only choice is coilovers.
