    Default 2005 Vectra 1.8 Life

    Well after being away from vaux for just under 12 months with the saxo I was looking for a bigger car and something just much better than a saxo! Then I got offered this off the brother in law for a price I couldn't refuse.

    Done a fair few miles 105,000 but most were motorway miles and it all runs and feels tight as a button. To say I'm happy is a understatement

    Quick spec:
    1.8 16v
    Eleccy Windows, Mirrors
    Cruise control
    Air con
    Only got the CD30 in at the mo but want to change that

    Plans are get my reg put on it and to just tidy bits up and a few tiny mods maybe not much.

    Well here's some pics

    Couple of small updates, nothing special.


    Debadged the rear and pushed a bit of the dent out on the boot, still stands out like a sore thumb so it will be going into the bodyshop:
    Debadged:

    After messing with the dent:

    Fitted my private plate with pressed plates, like these alot
    Front:

    Rear:



    When I get back from my holiday car will be going in for cambelt & water pump, discs and pads all round and a full service. Then wheels will be coming off, new tyres and a refurb with a colour change not decided what I'm doing yet tho probs a light anthracite
