    Default VXR-D Project

    Thought i would start a bit of a project thread on my Vectra C ,

    this is for all of you that didnt see the the thread on VVOC

    The car started as my everyday hack , a totally standard Vectra C CDTi 150 Nav , that i was planning on keeping standard

    after 2 months of ownership i was bored with the boring looks of the car , so started trawling e-bay for bits to spice it up a bit , thats where it all went wrong , first purchase 19 inch VXR alloys





    Looking at the car now it looks like a 4x4 so needed lowering Eibach srings and Bilstein shocks to the rescue

    also managed to pick up a full set of VXR front and rear brakes of e-bay, so off to work i go and fit the suspension and brakes










    well the car lasted like that for another couple of months , but the e-bay trawling didnt stop tho , and managed to pick up a full VXR body kit , front and rear bumpers , skirts and spoiler all in the right colour

    all the kit fitted









    almost forgot to mention the BTCC rear deffuser i managed to find and the twin exit Scorpion exhaust



    well thats the first 6 months of ownership out the way

    the car is still looking the same externally but internally had a few bits added

    Auto light and Wipers
    Rear interior light and Illuminated sunvisors
    Rear electric windows ( had to add all the wiring )
    Park pilot front and rear ( had to add all the wiring )
    Headlamp washers
    TMPS ( had to add all the wiring )
    UHP4 Bluetooth factory phone kit

    then while on e-bay i spotted my latest mod







    so spent the weekend after fitting and wiring up the full electric leather VXR Recaros





    well thats the state of the car at the moment and its staying like that now ( well till at least next year )

    well the not spending didnt last long

    been looking for the VXR gear knob and was watching the silly prices they go for 137 for the last 2nd hand 1 i saw

    looking on epc for the part number for the gear lever assy and they list 3 options , standard leather sports lever , VXR or OPC , the only difference if the chrome top has the logo

    did a google search on the part number and found a website that dealers put there obsolete stock on and turns out a dealer in Blackpool has 1 and only wanted 132 and 6 delivery , so had to buy it lol


    looking at the labels on the box when it arrived they had had it in stock since 2009 lol

    a brand new lever and gaiter assy for cheaper than second hand unit

    I've got the rear spoiler and a few other parts, I'm heading the VXRD route too, although I've got the V6 diesel.
    Nice car though mate.
