    Default Hello There! Misty morning here!

    Hello everyone,

    Finally nice to be on the forum finally. Been mostly on the Facebook side of things for the past year or 2. Good to be here. Here's about the car I bought and it's history.

    On the 10th of January 2017 I purchased my Vectra.

    1st photo I took.

    29136033_10214691889383439_2854084993158742016_o.jpg

    £700 later, plus a £100 admin fee. I was driving away in my new car happy as larry! Very happy with my buy because it was something different. The color really caught my eye at first glance and I loved it when it rolled around the corner at auction. First thing i stuttered was I'M BUYING THIS CAR NO MATTER WHAT!

    Couple of months later into ownership my car knowledge wasn't it's greatest and the car had a massive problem. MAF And airflow was playing up alot causing the car to limp mode. So I had a friend look at it for me and turns out this is what he found. Yep thats a cable tie and a sock, halfrauds airfilter to go along with it.

    29137009_10214691891183484_5630127660295258112_o.jpg
    29103676_10214691890703472_2594601352810201088_n.jpg

    That problem solved I started paying attention to the exterior aesthetics of the car. WELL atleast I thought I did when BAM! yep! BONNET FLIPPED UP!

    17269003_10211437333301571_463095512_o.jpg

    I was super annoyed wit the situation but glad nobody was hurt or anyone with me!

    Yep that scared the hell out of me and I was very annoyed and pretty close to giving the car up. But I decided to get it all repaired and fixed. at the cost of £400+ for all repairs including a new bonnet and windscreen

    29186500_10214691889623445_1668581991198490624_o.jpg


    Climbing that absolute mountain I soldiered on...

    I looked for Facebook pages and groups to try and gain an understanding of what looked good and look for general advice on the car when I needed it. 1st thing I did was go to a meet near Sheffield and met some vectra lads that we're probably embarrassed to be near it! All their vectra's looked amazing and shiny and modded to hell their's me with my standard SRI ****box

    Taking from that I found that one of the lads "NewBoy" is a bodywork specialist I asked him to black out some bits on the vectra for me and it was a complete success! I finally got my first taste of modding! a long with eyebrows too!

    29187116_10214691894023555_8663563748931272704_o.jpg
    29136282_10214691891463491_3762470868320518144_o.jpg

    I loved it! It really was turning into something special, Not at a great pace either I wanted to make the moment last and not have it all done and dusted. I was enjoying changing the car so much!

    I then decided it was time to get the car a bit lower and Looking a bit more sleeker So I did some research on grills and found an irmscher grill! I couldn't find one for months upon months until a facebook member came and dropped on off for me for a (price of course) And I was dead chuffed!

    23376067_10213658564710968_7398711114860392382_n.jpg

    Taking from the happiness of the grill I then decided it was time to update/upgrade the cars bodywork! XP1/XP2 parts were on sale from some lads a friend new And I just had to have them!

    BAM!


    24474716_368103196994353_1158292262_o.jpg

    IT HAD A NEW FACE! And I fell in love with it all over again! It was awesome. I generally felt like a baller like, The car was awesome and it was so fun to do with Newboy as well! He helped me through the whole process and he made everything seem so smooth and I couldn't thank him enough!

    24650786_368103176994355_2011114335_o.jpg

    The car makes me very happy and I love every part of it but I wasn't finished there! (Still not) So I added some new wheels and rubber! 18" Ronals to be exact.

    29136149_10214691896423615_2544668647142457344_o.jpg

    Couple weeks earlier I then Added a VXR interior and my god it's awesome. Out with SRI in with VXR

    29133991_10214692098188659_3905094315470225408_o.jpg

    Couple more weeks after I finally added my Twin exhaust and LED rear lamps! (a life long dream of me to have!) haha

    28238277_10214503284708440_8235953252692977059_o.jpg

    Unfortunately I could go on all day about it but. I can't so That's a brief description in my time of ownership. Thanks for reading

    From SRI to (Sort of VXR Replica)
