    Default Just picked up an '05 Vectra elite 3.0 v6 CDTI (Pre-facelift because they're the don). Looking to get modding! All suggestions welcome :)

    Just picked up my Vectra which is near enough in mint condition! (Minus a few poorly placed Animal stickers...)

    I've been wanting one for so long! So to find an immaculate one is pretty much a dream.

    Only 45k on the clock so obviously i'm going to be changing a few belts and doing a little work just for my own piece of mind!

    Anyway, she's a big black beast!

    I'm planning on starting with the ride height as it does feel like it's on stilts. 35-40mm seems to be a good drop having viewed a few of the beasts on here! My main issue is whether to go for springs and shocks or coilovers?

    I would also like to fit the twin tail pipes that are on the SRI, any advice on the best way to do this would be awesome.

    Anyone got any good alloy suggestions? There are some hench deep dishers that my friend is selling at the moment but I don't have the funds. What looks good guys?

    I'm liking some of the LED headlight mods but I'm not really clued up on them. Same goes for interior mods really. I know there is a lot of soldering involved if I want to mod the dash lights. If anyone has any pics or experience doing this sharing it would be helpful To be honest other than chrome door pins the interior is pretty plush anyway!

    Really i'm just looking for ideas so please comment or post pics as they're all helpful

    Cheers guys!
    Stay-Johnson.

    Ultimately, I would like a Elite Estate model. There was a nice one going on Ebay Classifieds with 25K on the clock, a 2.8 CDTI remapped to 280 BHP. Probably more power than can be used on today's roads, but hey!

    I tell what you could do that I don't think anyone has done, updated the turbo (yes, that is my answer to everything these days).
