    Talking Hello from Colchester

    First time Vectra buyer here, I'm 21 years old and dont see anyone my own age driving these it seems most of my generation think its cooler to drive a tacky little hatchback. I wanted something a bit more premium so I got myself an 04 Vectra 2.0 DTi for £1650 and it seems like I'm a lucky bunny because the previous owner fitted SRi rims and side indicators to give it a sleeker look. I have to say I made the right choice this car drives so much better than my old Mk1 Megane and with double on the clock! I will put some pictures below if I can remember how to do this still. So far I've only de badged the rear gryphon and the text from the chrome strip and it looks pretty sleek. Considering a couple of subtle but effective visual mods such a black angel eyes and lexus lights for the front and rear respectively, gunmetal paint on the SRi rims, tinted windows and a spoiler, probably just a small lip spoiler seeing as how it would be more of a cruiser, seeing as its only a 2.0L diesel and im not one to whore attention or "street race" for that matter.






    this is from before the de badge btw

    Hey thanks
    Im chuffed too see a response so quickly, only had my Vectra for a few days and falling in love with it already, it was a nightmare being stuck in the insurance bracket of only being able to afford french cars, but now I got something a bit more robust and with alot more presence im extremely happy with it.

    Looks nice in black. Personally I wouldn't fit Lexus lights. Sri tinted ones are nicer IMO. Black headlights and an irmy grill would look great!!

    I already ordered a sports grill I will have that on next week some time, then black headlights will definitely be needed to complete the look at the front end, am only gonna be able to afford one mod every couple of weeks or so but it should be looking fresh in no time
