    Default Had the Siggy a year now

    As per title had the car a year now,cost me £7000,as I had got £4800 in total for my beloved 04 plate vectra I had plenty of money left over. It was going to be a slow mod (supposedly lol),Here she is as I first got her.

    The first job was to get the detailing gurus around Aka Khalid(happypostie) and Bob (Bobsignum).
    so they weave their magic on the cleaning side

    The technical guru was also in attendance Aka Dean(Plasma) to fit the angel eyes as the first of many mods

    It's amazing that a year has passed already Ian... And nice to see how quickly someone can put their own personal touch to their motor
