    Default My journey into caring for my car

    Nothing Special, but I've had the car (1.8 Sxi) 2 weeks now and really I'm just trying to get used to caring about a car and trying to make it tidy. Last 2 cars I've had were 3 year lease jobs so couldn't really get excited about them, and then along came the Vectra.

    It needs a bit of love and attention - isn't worth spending a fortune on, but hopefully I can carry some of the habits over to a car that's been treated a bit better by the previous owners.

    So was just a quick wash and wax with Muc Off kit - hopefully my Meguiars stuff should be here by the weekend so it can have a proper polish!

    A cheap and easy option would be to get a pair of clear ones and orange bulbs (Or buy some new silvatec bulbs) from a later model, straight awap.

    Here you go...bargain:

    Looks great, but I agree about the wing indicators, and you would be amazed how fitting silver door handles helps too!

    Clear lenses ordered.

    Chris - that's on the list - there are a few mechanical niggles to worry about before i get too carried away, but I loved the difference it made on yours.
