    Default Norfolk newbie..

    Hi everyone

    My name is Jordan

    Just bought myself my first 'sensible' car.

    I've had countless cars, my last was a summer project that I spent over £2000 on, sold it for £950 (Ouch!) To fund the Vectra.


    I work at Adrian Flux, love modified cars, I eat sleep & breath 306's.. But it's time to go sensible.

    I've always had a soft spot for Vectra C's, especially pre-facelifts.

    I got the go ahead from the bank man a couple of weeks ago so I set about finding a diesel vectra, did a light amount of research & found the usual diesel issues.. EGR, DMF etc.. (I am a diesel nut, coming from 306o.co.uk & building the masterpiece diesel 306 previously...)

    Spent a day looking round garages (Drove over 350 miles in one day)

    Ended up with a 2004 54 plate Vectra C 1.9 SRI CDTI 150 in Ultra(?) blue.

    77k, FSH
    2 owners
    3 mths Warranty
    EGR was done last year..

    Paid probably a bit over the odds (£3100) but I wanted dealer facilities.

    Absolutely love the car, it has XP2's on it which i'm hoping to find someone on here to swap/do a deal on some 19" Snowflakes.

    Anyway, enough of rambling.. here's the car:











    I've since debadged the boot lid, putting my private plate on it this friday & then its going back to the garage for it's MOT (Within price.. MOT, wheel bearing & new thermostat as it runs cold)

    My future plans are:

    SRI headlights (No idea why its not got them?! It's HPI clear!)
    19" Snowflakes
    Gloss black the front V grill & possibly the boot strip
    MAYBE lower it 40mm, depending on how the OEM springs hold up (I've heard an awful lot about them)

    Might take it to Courtenay for a map if I can afford it! If not, a DT UK tuning box will be going on it.


    Cheers for viewing!

    Jordan

    Cheers for the reply, yeah I did wonder that too but i've checked it over as best I can & can see no sign at all of any impact damage, & it's HPI clear.

    I can only wonder if maybe the previous owner had some aftermarket lights on it (They changed the wheels so I can only assume they were 'into' cars?) & then when they sold it, could only get hold of non sri lights?

    I guess that's just me thinking positive! lol.
