    Default What Can I do to my Vec?

    Cosmetically, I know the direction I want to be going. I have a 2.2 DTi Elite, I'm going for the SRi bumpers, skirts and rear spoiler (might swing for a VXR spoiler next year) but with regards to suspension, brakes then power, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to diesels.

    I'll probably be looking around £600 for coilovers, and around £400 for uprated disks and pads, I'd possibly look at braided hoses too. Any recomendations for any of these? Any bushes prone to going I could look at uprating?

    And then onto more power - What can I do here?

    I've just undertaken a week of euro driving in the car, it performed adequately, other than feeling wobbly at speed, and almost cooking my brakes on the Gottard pass in Switzerland...

    (Tried uploading a few pics of the trip but they are mostly too large!)

    I have to ask, why the beam bending stickers on the lights? There is a little leaver in them to swap between uk and euro driving.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Were here to help I would also recommend having a quick look through the manual as there are people on e-bay who sell info that is actually in the book

    I had a good read of the Vectra Secrets thread on here, and also of the how-to's!

    I thought only the AFL units could be changed from RHD to LHD without beam convertors!

    Will bare it in mind the next time I go away, I can feel Stelvio calling me

    IIRC on mine it was inside the light underneath the cover that you remove to change the bulbs. I believe its also detailed in the manual.

    If we only had a search function!
