    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 :)

    I know I just posted this on the introduce yourself bit!



    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.

    I'll post some ideas up later because phone typing is a pain but for now, yay! A Cornwall member! Where are you from?

    PICS! it's the law!

    Sounds a lovely car. If you are fitting dual exit, perhaps look at fitting the VXR style diffuser at the rear as I think this looks much nicer.

    Wheels,... any of the Irmsher ones look great, what size are you thinking?.. 18"?.. 19"?

    Opel Grille would look dandy also but to complete, maybe remove the griffin from the rear.

    I'm living in Newquay at the moment! Just moved from Falmouth!

    Yes! I'm on the search for some Sri bits at the moment so that will be very helpful Taffy Bhoy! Bumpers and Skirts would be handy!

    Chewy i'm thinking of going 18" But i'm on a tight budget at the moment as i've just picked her up! Been scowering scrappies and gumtree for the minute but will splash some cash when it's available (eventually) Will post some photos when I get my camera back on Saturday

    was it you that messaged me on gumtree by any chance about twin exhaust and bumper? i tried to reply to the email but it wouldnt let me. exhaust is no longer for sale, its been fitted to our new vectra, the rear bumper is still for sale but has now been converted to a single exit rather than the twin (someone supposed to be coming tomorrow for it), front bumper and headlights are sold, rear lights still here, skirts still here

    Cheers Chewy will have a look now! Got an Opel Grille from my grandad's old Vectra it's been in his garage since he sold it. Was a lucky find because he didn't know it was in there! ha

    Yup! That was me on Gumtree! What would you like for the skirts and lights then mate? I wouldn't be able to get to you before the rear bumper is picked up so i'll have to search elsewhere
