    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 90k

    Talking My 2005 pre face, vec 1.9 CDTi SRi 150 nav in grey! Norwich lad :)

    Heres some pix of my Vec, its a grey SRi CDTi 150 with nav, although its a GID not a colour screen (might upgrade it one day). Shes bog standard at the moment, and probably will stay that way for a while as shes broken lol things that need sorting :

    1. Grinding noise from the front when going over bumps, that disappears when engine is warm (bizarre)
    2. tapping/rattling/nasty noise from the engine when on tick over
    3. rattling flywheel
    4. front flexi is blowing
    5. and I think ive just got a knocking from the front too!

    So all in all a fair bit bit gutted really as I love the car, but only had it since October and its just not been running right lately and it costing me a lot of money

    Anyway some pix:

    First day I got her

    IMG_0714 by ozyboyross_40D, on Flickr

    On my drive at home


    IMG_0721 by ozyboyross_40D, on Flickr

    and on holiday in wales the first week of ownership (wish my house looked like that one lol


    IMG_0733 by ozyboyross_40D, on Flickr


    IMG_0724 by ozyboyross_40D, on Flickr

    So there we have it, Ive already added mtec bulbs to numberplate and sidelights, and put osram nightbreakers in both dipped and main beam, but that's all ive done other than maintenance and repairs

    I would like to get the wheels refurbed black or buy a black set of different wheels, I would like to lower her slightly, but hopefully still keep the ride, I would like the irmscher grill with the chrome top strip, I would like to remap her, and I would like to get the windows tinted. But at the moment I need to try and get her running right which is costing me a small fortune!

    Looks like a nice tidy example mate,once you've sorted the wee niggles it will be spot on,oh and don't change colour of the wheels as they are best in silver IMOIMO

    Thanks guys :-)

    Lol a lot of people have said leave the wheels silver! I just want to mean it up a bit lol! It's not in bad shape to be fair! Front bumper has had a slight knock and a clip has broken so it sticks out a tiny bit and the rear bumper has also been pushed in slightly! All by the previous owners ill add lol but it's only noticeable if you really look for it!

    I do love the car! So many extras and so comfy! It's just heartbreaking that all these things are going wrong within 5 months of having it! And it had to happen when I'm out of work so im skint lol but that's life hey!!

    Biggest gripe is its gutless at the mo! Which I'm hoping is coz of the flexi pipe!

    Thanks mate! That's not a bad shout I hadnt thought of those! I do love snowies but the thought of 19" rims when I've lowered it and all the pot holes round my way just terrifies me so would ideally like to keep 17s on it!

    So, take some notice of the guys you know that can appreciate a superb looking motor when they see one.

    When you've got the cash, use it towards the IMPORTANT bits, and LEAVE THE WHEELS ALONE !

    Lol the wheels are the least of my troubles at the moment! The pretty bits won't come for a while unless I can grab some eBay bargains!

    I will definitely look into facelift sri alloys though! I still like black wheels lol my mate had black wheels on his vec the same colour as mine and they looked smart! We will see haha

    Ill photoshop most bits before I buy em anyway lol

    Your car looks great in the grey with silver wheels. I especially like the lack of chrome trim along window bottom.
    Fix the running problems and you will enjoy your car even more.
    All the best
