    Default My Exclusiv

    Well ive had my car since september 2009. Its a Sapphire black 1.8 vvti Exclusiv.
    This is what i part exchanged for it, my beloved MGZR. this was my first car and had owned it from brand new


    This is what the vectra looked like on the day of picking it up (minus the wind deflectors and black grill)


    after having the car two weeks, i flew to canada with work for two months. So in December after receiving a nice bonus from work i treated her to a new set of shoes, 18" ZCW Angels with 225/40 tyres


    Not long after that i gave LMF a call and ordered the full XP kit minus the boot spoiler. I srayed the sideskirts and rear skirt myself (not the best job but no-one ever noticed)


    While all of that was going on I had ordered some Supersport springs and shocks from venom-motorsport. They finally arrived after 9 weeks of waiting, so i set about fitting them straight away (finally finishing at about 10pm one febuary evening)



    The car stayed that way for a couple of months, then i got my twin exhaust, and fitted it one day after work. also forgot to mention that i debagded the car earlier in the thread


    The car stayed stayed like this for a further couple of months, then i bought a VXR boot spoiler from ebay for a very good price. So while i was spraying it i took the chance to spray my XP front lip, that had been sat in the shed for 5 months. I also sprayed the grill one night whilst helping a mate change his springs.
    So now the car looked like this





    A few more from a day a Leeds Castle





    The car remained that way until August/September last year when i decided i wanted to sell the car and get a signum, so it was stripped of everything bar the wind deflectors. some parts were sold to members on here, the suspension and wheels went to my best mate.
    Then after a couple of trips to london and back (from wiltshire) i realised that i was actually averaging about 48mpg. Not bad for 1.8 in a big heavy car, and with only 38,000 on the clock, i decided to keep it.
    So between then and now ive put an LS trim on the rear bumper (painted sapphire black of course), fitted single exit back box, stickerbombed the dash trims and steering wheel, and a couple of other little bits.




    At present im just waiting to gather some cash for new wheels, tyres, and coilovers, then probably some mudflaps, and maybe a stainless exhaust.

    thanx for reading, will update as and when necessary

    Im not going the XP route again ian, been there, done that!! Lol
    Going a bit more euro/scene this time, it'll be different and maybe not to everyones taste, but in my head it looks good. Plus ive only just passed the 40,000 mile mark, why change a car that i know has got nothing wrong with it.

    Good thread mate, how was the interior trim to take take off? I'm thinking of covering my fake wood effect!

    thanks mate but they are stickers so will come off easily, however i have just bought another set of dash trims as the stickered ones are painted black underneath.
    unfortunately the car dont look like that anymore, (the first pic is how it looks now). i got bored with it and was gonna go a different route but now have decided im gonna sell it and get another MG ZR, as i loved my first one to bits.

    MG ZR - I'm not too familiar with the MG line up, is that based on the Rover 75 but without the fuddy-duddy, pipe-smoker, bowler hat, sunday driver bling? If it is - then it gets my vote.
