    K&N made no noticebale difference to sound or really to the performance as the V6 is so smooth anyway. But did notice a couple of mpg improvement in fuel consumption. Hoping to get it RRd soon to see what the output is like.
    Yes, this pic is with the GSi springs (standard shocks), lowering is not that noticeable until sat next to a standard Elite. Does firm the suspension up without sacrificing ride quality - hangs on through the bends much better.

    Just wish I coud have it back - been at the dealers for 5 weeks after they f****d up the work they were supposed to be doing on it. Vauxhall now involved trying to sort the mess out!

    Nice clean Vec there mate. You want at least a free service out of Vx - 5 weeks, that is not 'Customer Satisfaction'.

    The fogs look a little different to normal, or is it just the picture angle?

    Nope - fogs are standard - must be the angle of the pic.
    Had the bumper off a few weeks back to try fitting SRi / GSi / Signum fogs and although the fogs fit straight on, the surrounds are completley the wrong shape. Might have another think when I fit the front spolier though.
    Also picked up a set of SRi sideskirts off eBay today which although the wrong colour will look better when sprayed as they are smooth not textured like mine. Cost a fortune though - sixteen quid for the pair!!!

    24vElite, the signum fog surrounds just fit the SRi/GSi as they have a different front bumper to the rest, with round fogs ? yoer only option would be to fit an SRi/GSi bumper, they appear on ebay now and then ? Hope this helps...
