    Default Forde's Vectra VVT SRi

    Hi guys just joined i bought this vectra on tuesday, its a 2007 but it was reg'd in middle of december so really its just over 4 years old, 2 weeks off being an 08. Only had 23,400 miles when i bought it on tuesday (now 24k, cant stop driving it!) and has a service history at 5, 10, 15 and 20k, its really mint, like a new car tbh, anyway i love it so far!

    Here are the pics from the ad. They dont do it justice at all but its all i got right now. My camera is playing up but im going to give it a big clean this weekend so should get some nice pics then.

    First thing i want is a HID kit. What are the bulbs on this? H7? Dunno if i should go for £100 philips kit, £35 ebay kit or something in between, also can anyone recommend good sidelight bulbs to match HIDS?

    CHEERS FOR LOOKING!

    Youre welcome, you will need to remove your airbox and washer bottle to gain access to the rear of the lights! Unless you have very tiny hands

    Very nice car indeed and nice low mileage. Registered in December it would not be 2 weeks off being an 08,.. but a good 2.5 months! And bulbs,... I wasted lots of money on white / brighter bulbs of varying types,.. get an HID kit... £55 VERY well spent

    bulb fitting,.. remove bumper .. VERY easy and only takes 5 minutes to remove and refit, then you have loads of space and do it properly. there's a 'how to' for this.
