    Default SRI XPII - The Falcon mk3

    Well, I've this, my third Vectra C, had it for about 2-3 months now and loving it. Drives far better than a standard SRI for some reason, better planted on the road, more sure-footed and more front end responsive.
    My first Vec, 2.2i direct SRI received no mods at all. My second and currently still owned, a 2008 150 CDTI SRI from almost new had HIDs fitted, VX moulded flaps and door cill protectors.
    Most will know I have already bought the VXR grilles / fogs and diffuser which I am delivering to the bodyshop tomorrow for spraying up, then hopefully fitted next week. HIDs are here and ready to fit.

    so here's the car as I bought it, purchases to date are the 4 new tyres and a full VX service.

    I would like the chunkier style aeriel on it, anyone know which one I mean and if it can be done?... Next pics, VXR bits on....

    Same as mine too, including the phone part which will be removed very shortly. looking forward to seeing the grille on it, I've colour coded mine but not 100% with it.
    And mine hasn't got TC either.

    Gurjsagoo,.. no traction control, they are basic SRI trim and spec unless upgraded when originally bought / ordered.
    CDTiMatt,.. my phone cradle comes off soon, ordered the cup holder and sliding door, along with some insignia washer jets too
    R-man,.. Was going for 19" VXR wheels, but changed my mind and have grown to love the XP2 wheels

    I've got the same in my ebay watch list, plus HIDs and eibach springs. Just bought a set of 314 calipers and carriers so that should keep me going until I do the headlight washer upgrade. Damn this bug is catching, I thought I'd shaken it off but it just comes back with a vengeance

    am not going that far I don't think. I think the ride is firm enough without fiddling with it, HIDs go in when the grilles are fitted. Once the grilles and diffuser are on then it's off to have a dual exit exhaust fitted - only as there are two holes in the VXR diffuser,... and then I'm done I think... unless I can get the aerial swapped too!!

    ah it's the DAB I like the look of, so I guess it's not possible to swap to it as mine has NAV fitted

    Couldn't you fit a GPS antenna under the centre vent in the dash and then put the DAB aerial base on for just the radio?
