    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default VXR bodykit complete at last (including new exhaust tips).

    Gutted to have to remove my quads but got a nice new pair of Powerflow exhaust tips fitted because the quads really didn't sit right with the new VXR skirt.

    Finally got it all finished and fitted today. Been a damn long road to this, I bought the side skirts, rear skirt and diffuser in November last year. Big thanks again to Kev (Gibbon7000) for offering to spray them up for us a month or two ago, without him they would still be sitting in the cupboard un-touched.

    Happy bunny, although I miss my quads (if anyone fancies quad tips on theirs, let me know, I've still got the old tips sat here).

    Anyway, what ya think? (excuse the state the cars in, still haven't cleaned it after the quagmire that was Billing )

    Next on the list, an XP2 splitter modded to fit the preface, having seen it can be done, that's my splitter of choice now, should match nicely.

    Lol, you can see the mud down the side of the car from trying to escape Billing's grasp on Saturday morning (it's a lot worse on the drivers side). The rear bumper's relatively clean because we cleaned it quickly to make sure the skirt adhered to it.

    Seems fine mate, although I won't be 100% sure until the car's properly cleaned, the sikaflex is cured and everything is polished up. But the bit you were talking about certainly doesn't notice at this point

    As mentioned in my first post, next (as and when we can afford it so probably not for quite a while), is an XP2 replica front splitter modded to fit the preface. No doubt I'll be tapping your shoulder again some time in the future for that

    It looks much better now than with the quads, in my opinion.

    No problem mate, anytime. Still got some of the paint left.

    Felt guilty looking at your car so just come back in from washing mine. It aint shiny but at least its clean now lol
