    Default New Here

    Good Evening All, Just purchased myself a Vectra C 1.9 CDTI SRI 8v (pics below) thought it was time to ditch the 406 and this car so far seems great. The 6 speed and cruise control are a much welcome upgrade!

    I have noticed the bulbs on the car seem quite pathetic, whats my best option for upgrading these?

    Also I am trying to shift over my Aftermarket DAB stereo, I brought a harness adapter however it has come with the red cable not plugged in and with no connector on the end! I have searched the forum but cant seem to see where in the quadlock i should plug this in? I read something about wiring it into the cigarette lighter, would this work? I just want the stereo to turn on when I turn the ignition then turn off after I lock the car?IMG_2127.jpgIMG_2128.jpg

    Welcome to the forum you're best bet would be HIDs or or buy a set of Xenons lights.

    Welcome aboard mate

    Lots of useful help and advice available here, you just need to ask / read in the appropriate sections, and belive me, there are lots and lots of useful reads / information threads here on everything from mods (including light conversions) to repairs.

    Just take your time to read through a lot of it before you jump in and make a purchase you may regret later (for want of a bit more reading).

    Nice to have you with us and a gorgeous looking motor you got yourself there too

    Thanks for the replies guys, which out of HIDS and Xenons are the easiest to fit? I am by now way of the imagination very technically minded!

    Also for my stereo issue Ive been advised by a friend to scotch lock my red/igntion cable to the cig cable, is this right?
