    Default What Next for my GSI?? advice needed!

    Hi Guys

    Im hanging in the balance for a potentialy expensive fault to be fixed on Vicky my vectra..... But while she's away Im having thoughts on what to do next to her... thats if i decide not to sell her!!!

    I personally dont like the Black 'Muddy flappy trimmy' Bits (SEE PIC!).... and the rear exhaust trim, as they the only bits that aint colour coded!!! I also have a rear spoiler to spray and fit... So does any one know if these mud flap bits can be sprayed~? .. or has anyony done it before?? or to i just pull them off???

    Also i want to get a rear VXR exhaust trim to replace the sh**ty black plastic standard one... but where can i get it from (or is it VX part only)... and how much is it likely to cost??

    I thought while i was spraying the Spoiler... i might as well do other bits im not happy with... but im not sure it will look right.


    Anyone with ideas or thoughts...


    would be appriciated!!


    cheers

    Vinny

    The VXR rear insert is about £36 from vx (possibly thinking of the btcc one, not sure) Yes the mud flaps can be painted, rub them down so they are smooth and spray away. Its all in the prep for a good finish.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Not sure if the btcc and vxr are not the same part, i'm sure someone will know and be along in a min. Bets place to buy them from as they go for silly money on E-bay.
