    Default New Member [2003 Elite 2.0Dti]

    Hi People, I'm a new owner of an Opel Vectra C 2003 2.0Dti Elite.

    The car is the second car I've owned. I have always driven VAG cars, I learned on my dads Passat b6 and then had an Audi a4 b5.

    I bought the car last Sunday from a lady who has clearly not given it much attention, the car was filthy inside, lots of things broken, exterior is quite clean with no rust but a few marks here and there and loads of stone chips and its missing clear coat of the mirrors and a bit on the rear bumper.

    Other than that it's a lovely shade of blue metallic with pretty much everything stock. The car is going to be my base for mods. And I already have a few things planned out on how its going to look like when finished.
    Other than this i only have done some detailing today and brought him to the mechanic to have a look how the car is going.

    Things that need to be done straight away:
    x4 Discs and pads all around
    x2 Rear callipers as they are leaking
    Thermostat
    Wiper mechanism
    New battery
    Right fog light needs a new reflector and bulb holder


    My Plans:


    Exterior:
    -Debadge front and rear
    -Black wrap on roof(to cover up the scratches the previous owner left, probably with her handbag)
    -HIDs 6K
    -Yellow Fogs
    -LED tail lights
    -Tint Windows and rear lights
    -LED Licence plate lights and position lights
    -Lowering Springs (or coilovers)
    -Alloys(Looking at BBS and Rotas at the moment [ill post them on the Vectra C discussion forum])
    -Painting Headlights black inside
    -Dark indicators

    Interior:
    -Full valet ASAP
    -Tablet as head unit conversion
    -LED mod
    -Leather seats Transplant
    -Steering wheel replacement
    -Carbon fibre wrap on few parts

    Under the hood:
    -Tuning box
    -Intake
    -Straight through exhaust


    And a few pics, sorry for quality and quantity but I don't have a good camera at the moment.

    Welcome along. Nice list of mods you've got there

    BTW, silly question, does it not already have Leather?

    Thats strange, as far as im know all UK Elites come with Leather as standard. Wonder if Opel cars were different.

    I thought the elite was high end model with full leather. An all the gadgets like xenon lights, gps etc!
    Nice motor though! Really like that shade of blue, Welcome to the club mate will be interesting to see your progress and end product. :-)

    Sounds like it aint an Elite, possibly a mistake has been made at registering, it could be an ls, breeze, or something like that, Still a good car just not all the toys you get with Elites.

    Id agree. Judging buy the alloys, and rear lights id suggest it is actually Elegance.
