    Default Just bought car . . . help on modding

    Hi all, just bought Vec C SRi V6 CDTi. Will only have limited funds till next year so all mods will be minor just to keep me interested. I am thinking of the following: -

    VXR colour coded front grill (part number? is it an easy change? what do I keep/lose?)

    Irmscher door pins - can I use my Vectra B door pins on the C?

    LED sidelight bulbs - xenon white preferred, which are good/best & Canbus safe?

    LED rear number plate bulbs - xenon white preferred, which are good/best & Canbus safe?

    VXR rear bumper skirt - seem cheap enough, easy job to change? Can the 888 skirts still be bought new? If so what is the part number?

    VXR gear knob - the gear knob on my car is round, I know you can buy VXW inserts, but they are the wrong shape, which knob do I need so that I can insert the VXR logo?

    VXR steering wheel cover. My trim is dark silver/titanium. Is there one for my car or just the light silver version?

    Thats all I'm really thinking of doing for now.

    Thanks

    To answer a couple...

    Bulbs go to www.hids-direct.co.uk
    you want mtec 501 side lights, they are the dogs

    reg bulbs are just 42mm festoons so.. eBay job
    I got 8led White ones and they look mint

    v grill... There's a vxr site where you can buy one for about 100 quid, fitting it though... Ugh, there's a few guides on here so do a search lol,
    bumper off though unless you got a million flathead screwdrivers
