    Default Greetings from Swindon, Wilts

    Without sounding too much like an AA meeting......I'm Dave and I have recently bought a 2004 Vectra Est. 1.9 CDti 120 Elite in black.

    This is a little bit of new grounds for me as I usually shy a way from modern vehicles - personal choice. I've been tinkering with cars for 16yrs and modified each and every one of my 31 cars I've owned. Unfortunately, fate has got in the way of carrying on this madness - some call it growing up but been there and done that and its a viscious circle. But, my partner is pregnant and we are expecting our first together to go with her 5yr old daughter. SO, something practicle then........

    Not been a great start with Vectra ownership but having read some articles I wasn't niave enough to think it was going to be plain sailing....but 24 hrs? Oh well.

    I popped into the Stealership to get the headlight bulbs changed because of their weird holder contraption and though I'd just pay someone as I don't have time with work at the moment. 55w to 80w low beams and they are still rubbish. I should have just gone with HIDs but I forgot to take my last set out of the last car. It wasn't this that annoyed me though as they do a free inspection with any works they do. This highlighted the need for front and rear pads which I knew about but also a snapped front spring. A second opinion and significantly cheaper qoute from my local garage I use when I can't get time sorted this out. I rang the previous owner (private sale) and he agreed to fund half - bonus.

    Intro over.

    Dave
