    Default VXR Signum (Pics??)

    It's a bummer that Vauxhall never made an official Signum VXR, especially in the tasty VXR blue colour - I bet it would have looked the dogs doodoo's. Has anybody converted a facelift Signum to full VXR spec? Pics would be good if such a car exists....

    Mine had the body kit and brakes from the VXR, and Signumboy has one in red which he made from a pre-facelift 2.0 Turbo...

    Dredging up an old one since I'm having thoughts about creating my own signum VXR.
    I've just had the car remapped so I have the power figures to match. IMO the car looks pretty great in elite form now its been debadged completely apart from the fromt grille but seeing these pics makes me think a VXR kit might be a good idea! Does the kit from the vectra bolt straight on?

    More important than that though, is the rest of the running gear that is different. Does anyone know what is left to change?
    I'm pretty sure about the brakes needing a swap (314mm vs 345mm). Do these go under 18s?
    Also know the suspension is stiffer, but most folks opt for bilsteins anyway right?

    What else?

    Defo not reprinting. Gonna keep her silver and subtle.

    one of the things I love about the signum is (almost) nobody knows what it is and even less know how quick it is. I guess I have the go but want to make sure the rest of the upgrades follow suit.....brakes, suspension, interior, etc. just need to know what I'm missing.
