    Default Hello from the colonies

    Hello everyone and I am from the USA, I just purchased a 2007 Saturn Aura XR which in the real world translates to a Vectra-C platform with a 3.6 VVT engine and 6 Speed auto with paddle shifters. From what I've found the Vectra-C across the pond didn't come with this drivetrain (252 HP). The Aura was only sold here for 3 years ('07 to '09) until the Bamster killed Saturn. Because of this limited production the forums are very light and not a lot of input. I knew I could find more Vectra-C fans in the Isles. It will take me a while to figure out what features and technologies were shared but I already know I need someone to go to a breaker and pry me off some Vauxhaul /Opel badges to replace my Saturn badges, and some 345MM brakes for the race track, you seem to have a lot more aftermarket support also. I thank you all in advance.

    Welcome along. 3.6 engine? Bet that's fun to drive, especially when you're not paying $2 a litre for petrol like we are.

    Had a quick look online and I'd say if you wanted you could VXR the front end, changing the bumper and light. The back end, I don't know. Looks kinda like a Astra saloon from the back. And how much is your fuel per litre?
