    Default New member..... old owner

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Robin and live in the Netherlands
    Since december 2004 i own an Opel Vectra estate (station, wagon dunno what they are called here)
    I searched the net for more info/help about the car and ended up on other sites than this one (mostly German).
    Today, (still dont know how i could have missed this site/forum) i came across you excellent forum.

    A lot of info, tips, how2's..... i'm a happy man.
    My vectra is still standard, (however... fitted a Pioneer Avic X1 on day 1, with lcd screens in the headrest for the kids, and modded the dash for a "nicer" looking place to stick the radio in.)

    The reason for searching the web for info was a squeeking sound from the driver seat.... 4 times i've been to the dealer to let them fix it....
    The last time they finaly found it. It was the mechanism for the active headrest that was squeeking.

    Furthermore i do want to do the "paint the original side skirt" mod, eventhough my car is black.

    Sorry if my English isn't perfect or i make up funny sentences.... i'll try my best to be clear ....

    Greetz Robin

    Thanks for the warm welcome

    I'v read a lot of threads that are interesting to me so i've got a lot of work ahead of me.

    Anybody done something about (extra)soundproofing the car?
    because i think the tires make some noise.(from the rear mostly)

    or should i open a new thread for this

    welcome robin,

    I find that if you turn the stereo up enough, you won't hear the tyres!

    Hi and welcome robin..

    I've put extra felt soundproofing in my rear boot, over the wheelarches as they have none from the factory..VX/Opel just leave them bare..it's well worth getting some..
