    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 2.0 turbo

    Year : 2005

    Default Fitting new suspension

    Well got up today at 06:00 and got myself ready for a road trip to Ian Highlanders for his help to fit my new suspension, i arrived there at around 10:00 as i sat around 60 mph all the way there and also stopped off for a sandwich and drink.
    When i got there i met 2 awesome people Amy & Ian who made me feel right at home and may i say Amy's cookies and home made bread rolls were just fantastic .
    I watched Ian do the 1st suspension leg after checking my work on assembling them before bringing them down and to say thank god i did because i might not have been sitting here now lol.
    After watching Ian do the first i did the rest with Ian's help of course and the self satisfaction of doing it is unbelievable.
    The ride is amazing and the look is fantastic and after the test drive Amy pulled my arm into giving it a wash and then pulled my other arm to detail it the results out of this world i had the biggest grin on the way home this evening.
    Ian took me out in his estate and the thing feels like its on rails really glued to the road and well planted i must admit i did have a brown moment after his demonstration but WHAT A CAR.

    So once again Ian & Amy i really cannot put into words how grateful i am for your help and hospitality you guys are really what this forum is all about and now with your help i might be able to help someone down the line in the future thanks again guys

    Lol, in fairness, pretty much any pics taken were on our camera, but here's the end result of a really hard days work for everyone.

    Gotta say though, Paul's car (once it'd had a little TLC) looks awesome! I wish the paintwork on mine looked half as good as this does when it's polished up. The shine and deep gleam on it after we gave it a going over is unbelievable.

    Anyway, one pic for now, not sure if Paul's got any others, if not I'll stick some up tomorrow. This is with the new H&R springs, Bilstein B6 shocks and uprated drop links fitted but had only been quickly round the block so still got a way to settle. Looks awesome though.

    Car had just had a full jetwash, foam, rinse, hand wash (two buckets naturally), then a full polish using a d/a with AG UDS (except the passenger side wing which was done with Black Hole just to show Paul how good it was, but I was nearly out of it so we stuck to UDS for the rest).

    Just to also add, was an absolute pleasure for us mate, couldn't ask for a nicer bloke and as always, was nice to get to meet someone I've chatted to on here for ages. You know where we are if you ever need any help with anything mate, was a fun day and glad we could help you out.
