    Default The new Millennium Falcon

    Gave her a quick wash and a good internal clean (could not believe how grufty the previous owner of this car was,.. human grease build up on stalks, steering wheel, gearstick and handbrake...

    Already fitted flat blades and VX mats, and also purchased the VXR front grilles and fogs along with the rear diffuser...

    I'm in a dilemma with wheels. I really like the look of the 19" VXR alloys,.. but on a 35 wall, are these going to be a very stiff ride?.. Already with the 18" XP2 wheels (of which mine are mint with not one scuff!) it's a lot stiffer than my old SRI 17s...

    I really think that is the perfect Vectra alloy wheel. Looks classy rather than the geezer effect of the VXR's

    Any chance of a pic of the stuff you have got (the grilles etc), you have bought exactly what I will be after and even going down the same mod-route that I want to take too just want to double check that the grilles are the thing I was thinking about.
