    Vehicle : Vectra C 1.9 CDTI (150)

    Trim : Exclusiv

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI (150)

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 90500

    Default TomC281's Ultra Blue

    Been around a little while and done various little things here and there. Things are starting to happen all at once now so figured I'd start one of these before it got too much to do.

    How it started life with me.

    Next came wind deflectors and tinted LED rear lights

    Pic 4.jpg

    Following from that was replacing the blingy chrome headlights for black backed and fitting HIDs at the same time.

    I then got bored of the car looking like a small 4x4 so decided to fit Eibach 30mm lowering springs and also change the wheels to the 18" Twintops

    Pic 6.jpg

    Following on from that I decided it was time to get the windows tinted

    Pic 7.jpg

    That brings us to where it's at currently. To do list below.

    XP1 front bumper (Ordered)
    VXR Side Skirts (Ordered)
    XP1 Rear Bumper (Ordered)
    VXR Rear Spoiler (Ordered)
    Headlight Eyelids (Ordered)
    Painting front V grille (Next month hopefully)
    Hoffman Race Tube Centre Pipe (Waiting to fit)
    Rear box with exposed tip (Ordered)
    Wheel Spacers (To be ordered soon)
    Vinyl wrap door pillars (Got the wrap just need to do it)
    Refurb wheels to Gunmetal (Waiting on funds)

    There's a lot coming up and hopefully to be fitted by end of next month.

    It is there now. That photo was taken just after the windows were tinted and it had to be removed to do it.

    You need to de-tune it a bit as all I got to see of it was the rear end vanishing over the horizon

    I'm picking up the bumpers next Saturday and dropping it all to the paint shop on my way back though. The later in the month the meet is the more chance it'll all be ready for fitting.
