    Default Modifying cars

    Im 24years old
    Have druven a wide range of cars and have always ended up changing bits about thankfully never been in to bodykits and chrome wheels though, always try and keep OEM.

    However i havent done one thing to the Vectra yet and part of me thinks should i? in the past i have changed things about and then thought why have i bothered.

    I do feel like i want to lower the car and over time get some snowflakes but then i think is there much point?

    Is anyone else like me? cant make there minds up and often regret what they have done months down the line?

    The two single best things you can do for the look of the car are to get some Vx mudflaps and code them and put the Signum fog surrounds on.

    I agree greg why look a tit in a vectra when theres enough boy racers doing it already in other cars, nice wheels are ok if you can blag a decent set at the right price but some 18" look naff on a lot i've seen and the wally has spent like 2k on them

    I am the other way Gregg, although everyone tells me I am wasting my money, but I've always modified my cars, to me it makes it stand out from others. Sometimes I wish I hadn't bothered, like when I come to sell it and realise how much money I've lost on mods!!

    Prefer subtle modding thats not to 'in your face'. That said the subtle mods I've done in the last 12 months have garnered 2 comments and one of those wasn't favourable!
    I've removed the griffin from the boot, sprayed the front v grill black to match the car, fitted 'spoons fins' on the roof and fitted a vxr insert to the rear bumper. Each one I've done you think wonder what people will say?
    Answer - Nothing! (In my case).

    I actually recently de-modified the Astra. Back to pretty much standard now. I'm 31, and kinda just want a car to drive and not tart.
