    Default My Elite in Panacotta!

    The cars changed a fair bit really since I got it so here is an update with a few new pics too..

    Just thought i'd show you my car as it stands at the min. I've had a two months now and cant stop altering things on it.... Pretty much as I was with my last car!

    First of all here is the car it replaced...



    and here is the Vectra as it was when I went to see it...



    One of the first things I did was an LED conversion...



    But was never too sure on the green so red and white it was...



    Next up was a Parrot hands free kit, xenon conversion and the dark SRI Headlights making the front look far better than when it was all chrome..



    I bought a second hand DTUK green box from ebay, to be honest I was expecting it to be a waste of money but it makes a huge improvement over standard power... I may go for a remap yet but I'll see how the box goes.

    After putting up a couple of questions on here I decided it needed lowering so a set of H&R's were bought and fitted as well as new front tyres...





    I tried to get a decent pictue to show the pearl in the panacotta but it didn't really come out very well.



    So thats just about it for now apart from a couple of little bits. Its booked in on Monday to have its front bumper re painted and the grill colour coded, next I plan on getting the lip spoiler for the boot and the dark rear lights.... Hopefully that will be about it. I just wish the wheels were 18" but you cant have everything!

    The suspension never sat right on the H&R's fitted but eventually I found that the wrong ones had been supplied. I've since had the right ones fitted and it sits so much better now.

    I took the car into MAS Performance for a remap to and came away with 188 BHP so I'm chuffed to bits with that. I've also fitted an SRI boot spoiler and colour coded the front V grill too.

    Finally got my private plate on too so it feels like its actually mine...

    Couple of pics....







    The keener eyed will prbably notice a debadged rear too!

    Its getting there!

    As much as I like the Pannacotta colour, my car is that colour too, getting the colour to match is a real pain in the butt, with it being part pearl the bumpers can look a different colour to the rest of the car and so can any other spoliers etc.
    Nice looking car though mate.

    The worse colour match is the front bumper and that's how the car came from the factory! It's getting re painted soon so hopefully it will be closer
