After getting my new Vec Elite Auto almost 3 weeks ago, I had a day off work and gave it the first wash n wax etc so thought I would put up some pics as I believe its law here.
A few other mentions first.
Thanks to Andy, Andrew, Ditchp, ParaPaul for the replies to my first post last night ref the Diesel Partical filter. Special thanks to Shan for the pictures and yes it turns out I DO have a DPF so the dealer was wrong again!
Will have to re look at tuning options again, cant find a caterman as some of you mentioned so may hold off till I have a bit more cash for DTUK Green or similar.
Before the pics – a few things I have picked up on now I have given the car a good going over.
Last vec was pre facelift and I have notice the following things different on the Elite.
- Automatic bonnet opening thingy (same as on the boot makes it open) missing.
- Switch on wiper stalk end missing – this was used to cancel computer messages like ice warning, Range etc (similar to cruise cancel on indicator stalk) Now I have to go into computer via radio. (ok really minor but cant get used to not having the switch!)
- Courtesy lights (maybe called puddle lights) missing from doors.
- Checked all the lights and thought I had a rear fog bulb blown, when I investigated and pulled the bulb holder out in the boot I noticed there is not a bulb holder bit (hope you get what I mean)
- Front headlights have been annoying me as I think they are too low and not very good vrs old model so popped round the stealers and asked if they could have a quick look and they did saying one needed adjustment. Now the lights are worse!
- Stealers were too tight to even put windscreen wash in it so it froze the other night. This never happened on last vectra as I could of sworn they were heated but these are not.
Maybe a few more things ive forgotten – sorry did not mean to rant!!
Still LOVE the car though – shame on VX for stripping out parts Elite I thought was top spec, interior is fully loaded but will be looking into mods (SPOILER ME THINKS!!) as the only exterior difference I have is those stupis silver door handles!!
Hope pics are ok, comments most welcome and does anyone know where I can get a caterman box and can I use in Auto with DPF!?!?!?
