    Tis the best upgrade you can do to the vec IMHO.
    You will now also find your headlamp adjuster is redundant.
    I don't know if you changed your shocks yet, but Bilstein B4's are recommended by many forum members including myself.
    And for the win, a set of Continental Sport Contact 3's 225/45 R17 93Y tyres and a 314mm brake upgrade.

    You may have noticed the 93 in the above, these are the XL rated tyre, I find that these have less cornering roll and actually last longer than the standard 91Y tyres with no performance loss. Well worth the few extra pounds for performance and safety.

    With the conti's it is a harder ride than standard and there is some noise but the first time you need to stop in the wet in autumn, you'll be sold on these tyres, their braking performance in the wet is almost as good as in the dry and they have won many awards.
    You might get a little more performance in the dry out of another tyre but as an all rounder versus cost and life, I think you will find this tyre hard to beat.

    Maybe I should get a job with sales for Conti LOL

    If you have the money, then get a set of winter tyres, I can recommend from personal experience the Continental TS830P.
    All I can say is
    I was running rings round everyone round here when it snowed and just could not believe the traction from these tyres, they work by magic, I even drove up and down a 1 in 5 snow covered slope trying to upset these tyres, couldn't find anything steeper!.

    I'll be putting them back on again come November and keep them on until March.

    Thanks for the info Chocki i`m running VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA - 235/35R19 91Y XL TL tyres on my vxr rims which to be fair i cant complain about these tyres upto now they have given excellent grip all round and i still have my sri twin blade 17`s with the ZEIX 912 XL fitted which will be going back on for the winter they are a great all round tyre i didnt have any problems with them in the snow. I`m still on the original shocks for now i had a spring break last week which brought the eibach upgrade forward ideally i would of liked to do the shocks too but thats a mod for next year with a brake upgrade
