    Default What a site!

    Bit of a thank you post really tbh... Been lurking about for a couple of months - first for things to look for when buying a Vectra C which I then did, then just to look out for things I could do to it!

    First thing thats helped me out was the headlight refurbishment guide - makes the front end so much better. Second ive had a bit of a funny idle (hunting when slowing down) so cleaned the throttle body out and reset the ECU and works a charm! And thirdly after reading a warning post on here about the pollen filter housing drain blocking checked mine today and sure as eggs are eggs it was blocked up. So cleaned that up!

    Im on a modifying ban til Xmas but im going to carry on lurking til then raising ideas. Probably will join up as a full member tbh as what Ive done so far has saved me paying a garage to do it

    So yeah er thanks! lol

    Your next local meet is at rainham rolling road in two weeks ...there is a thread on the easts section

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=147365

    Within the region are detailing and electrical wizards ...along with people who can give you some excellent ideas on what to do ( and not to)

    Even if you just turn up for the breakfast and a chinwag ... It's well worth it
