    Default My Vectra Story so far......(In Pictures)

    Was a little bored tonight, so bashed together a little picture session from when i bought the car, to the current day......Hope its not too boring for you all......

    On the 22nd January this year, I bought a 53 plate Bog standard 2.2 SRi DTi Vectra C..



    And to be honest, after having a Vectra B Sri, this one was horrible, I hated it, it didn’t handle, didn’t go, was bland, boring, no fun at all! I hated it so much I contemplated selling it 48 hours after buying it!

    On the day after I bought it, it looked like this….





    And it stayed this way all thru Easter, then the Early summer Months…..







    Then…

    In June, I discovered Vectra-C.com…….And so the Mod’s started…

    As per the normal route, I started with little bits here and there….

    De-Badging the Boot



    An Irmscher Grille….



    Signum Fog Surrounds…



    I wasn’t too impressed with the standard set-up and handling, so I bought Bilstein Shocks and Eibach Springs from LMF….



    Nice, or so I thought, but I still wasn’t happy happy, so a few more mods commenced…

    Colour Coded Rear Valence…



    Painted Brake Caliper’s and Caliper Decal’s….






    I thought I was happy now, and I was until I went to TRAX……



    It was then, amongst all the stunning Vectra’s of other Member’s, I realised it needed some major surgery…

    It needed to go lower…..-45 Pi Springs and I was happy…For now..







    With its new low stance, it was crying out for a set of deep dished Rim’s… Inovit kindly supplied a set of 8x18 DTM’s…






    So here I am, 10 months after buying it, and I am almost happy with it now….

    Just a set of Coil Over’s(Obsessed with Low Car’s), Full Leather Re-Trim and an Irmscher Exhaust to go, and I think it will be somewhere close……

    Watch this space….( I will update this thread as the new bits get fitted..)

    There's a dodgy looking bloke in the background of the last picture eyeing up your car Ben.

    Perhaps he's contemplating just how superb Diesels are these days and that he ought to get in on the action!

    The car looks brilliant. The original brings back fond memories too!

    No boring at all matey! I think you have done a super job with your beast, seriously! :dool:
    I must admit too that when I bought my car never thought of modding it, its was a such nice car as it was, then the same thing happened to me...found Vec-C and the hole perspective changes
    Great job! Awesome car of yours!
