    Default Advice from the experts

    Hi guys this is my first real big post, so if you don't mind I'm after your thoughts on some body kit bits....

    I have had Vectra B's for my last 4 cars, each one I had had different body kits, ie side skirts front splitters and so on..

    What i miss is my rear spoiler had a look around and not sure what too go for..

    Genuine Irmy or look alikes.... spraying and fitting of the kits aint a problem its what to go for

    I do like the iRS style and have seen this one http://www.body-kit.co.uk/acatalog/i...1_OP20688.html

    Mind you do like these ones

    Front splitters not so sure on Just want to get one that gives a bit of distinction to the front end.. i suppose i miss my old phase one vec B GSi bumper lol

    And may as well ask about your Zorst ideas while im at it

    First is this a magnex.. do love the magnex

    Did have my eyes on a twin twin letterbox irmy but not sure as it will mean a bit more work on the rear splitter

    so any advise would be good, pics as well or links so i can have a look and make my mind up

    Thanks in advance

    For good fit non genuine spoilers, I would have a word with Drinky. He has sourced a couple and he cant fault the quality, Ithink the place even does a good spray job if you want before sending it out.

    Front spoilers, though expensive, I really do like the irmy one for the facelift. You can get the XP one (much cheaper) which makes it look a little like a VXR, but for me its just too subtle.

    For the twin letterbox zorst you'll need a different insert for the rear valance (assuming you have an SRi). Alternativley you can go for the twin exit either side of the car, but again you'll need to change the insert in teh bumper, but its much cheaper that way, rather then going for the irmy one. Also, you could go the full aftermarket route - speak to Spoons, he has in my opinion a craking set of pipes on his that sit just right, so ask him where he had them made.

    hope this helps.

    Ian has said it all, my opinion on Vectra C is not to skimp on sheap bodykits, it will spoil the car.

    I have dual branch on my 1.9, simply by using a 2.2 direct right hand silencer, and Irmscher Y peice.

    Irmscher is very good, but if you want to be a little different, why not go down the Steinmetz route? these guys produce a recognised range and is also top quality.
