    Default I Hate My Alloy Wheels!!

    Have any of you done a modification to your Vectra's which you seriously end up regretting?!

    Mine?

    Fitting XP2 alloy wheels to my preface SRI! These wheels look great on the facelift XP2, however they don't sit well on the preface shape!

    Since I fitted these wheels they have changed the complete look of my car. The wheels now make my SRI look very plain styling wise to the point that for it to look good (only in my opinion), I must.......

    Fit a Irmscher Front Spoiler (not a big fan of them, trying to convince myself otherwise).

    As a result of the front splitter it needs the VXR Rear Diffuser to balance out the back end. Also would require a dual exit exhaust set-up to look correct. A route I don't wish to go down.

    I loved the way my Vec looked on standard black SRI preface wheels!

    I'm gonna change back to either preface SRI wheels, GSI wheels, MV6 wheels or 18" Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2's.

    Wheels really are a make or break modification!

    These wheels have really grown on me. I have also bought a copy Irmscher splitter from Kman; this shall be painted gloss black and fitted soon.
