    Vehicle : Vectra C Preface

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2004

    Default Pretty much a standard veccy....what else can i do???

    Hi everyone, just looking around at other veccy's for inspiration. I currently have a pre face lift 1.9 150bhp sri, which I bought last October. I'm doing the inlet manifold this weekend as it is absolutely shot now. I am also thinking about a few mods to personalise it. The smd conversion is a definate, I've got all the smd's etc and a new stereo system for the interior coming for my birthday in march lol, but what can I do to the external without going overboard? Any suggestions/opinions welcome. thanks guys!

    was thinking about the eye brows and the chrome fog rings and maybe the wind deflectors. I was thinking about an irmscher grill like the one below

    Thanks for the opinions guys, given me some things to weigh up now lol. I'm not a big fan of the chrome anyways, i think too much will spoil the looks, but each to their own.
    @figjam1975 your drl's look super mate and the indicators i like too but don't think i would have the confidence to cut into my wing mirrors yet lol!

    Again thanks for the reply's

    That looks well nice mate, mine is a preface can i get the chrome fog lamp rings for mine too? I know i said i'm not a lover of too much chrome but they do enhance the look.

    the top pic shows the preface version of the chrome fog surrounds. They are from the preface Signum.

    The lower pic sows a cheap mod. Bit of paint on the SRI version looks nice, and the Opel grille ALWAYS looks the best IMO!!!
