    Default Cheapest and easiest mods. Tuning and styling.

    Don't think this has been done before. I think it will be a good idea to put as many free / cheap mods in one thread for people to start off with when they first buy a Vectra / Signum. So, i'll go first: Performance - Airbox mod (Remove pipe) - Free, very easy, takes about 10 mins. Styling - Debadge the boot - Free to a few quid for polish - takes about 30 mins. Easy, but take your time to avoid paint damage.

    Good idea for a thread mate!How about painting brake calipers? A pot of caliper paint is only a tenner so its cheap and cheerful OrSwapping interior roof light bulbs for LED ones, gives a fresher and crisper light compared to the standard dull yellowish bulbs. Again only a couple of quid for some LED bulbs
