    Default 2nd car or not, what would you do?

    Well, ive got £3k spare ( well nothing its accounted for) and i am due around £1k off the insurance company within the coming months.

    Do i go over the top and get myself an astravan, tbh i dont need it, however it would be useful for my mountain biking. I just love the idea of having something i can modify and not worry about what people think as it wouldnt be my daily runner.
    I would do pretty much the same as the picture below so obviously its going to cost me a few k, id expect around4-5k.




    Or do i modify the Vectra a bit, get some 18's but still trying to keep a GM look so Mr Normal wouldnt think i am a Racer (due to me working in schools, kids etc) i do need to keep a pretty unmodified look.

    Shot your ideas at me people

    I would Modify the Vectra, then buy an old sh!tter van to smoke about in...Dont worry about modding the van, use and abuse!

    Thats what i intend to do anyway in the next few weeks, I am starting to get paranoid about leaving the Vectra anywhere where i cant see it!

    Spose the real issue is i dont really neeed another vehicle, let alone tax and insurance.

    Just get itchy fingers, im 24, been fettling with cars since i was 17. I didnt want to touch the vectra, but ive lowered it 45mm, picking a grille up tmrw and every day im trawling ebay in search of some decent priced simple looking alloys.

    Suppose the vectra would lok spanking with some alloys and light smoked tinted windows

    Thats what happens to everyone who joins this site!

    I can justify a 2nd car at the moment, as i dont wanna leave mine parked in some grotty little transport yard all week gathering dust, and dont wanna use it as my day to day fly about anymore either.. Just want to be able to use it when i want to use it, not when i have to use it..

    Yeah, thing is i only do 200mile max a week, so really dont need another money burner.

    So on to mods for Vectra Alloys are a must but i want to find OEM looking ones which is harder than you would imagine as i dont reallyy want to be paying close to £1k for 2nd hand vxr or snowflakes.
