    Default Have you ever owned a Vauxhall Vectra B?

    Hi guys!

    If you've ever owned a Vauxhall Vectra B, you may want to take a look at this:



    Polish nation-wde TV station named TVN Turbo in show called "Great competition of Tuning Operation" starts competition between auto-clubs.

    The audience can choose between two presented cars to select the best modified car - by simple internet voting.

    This time it is VW Golf Mark II vs Opel Vectra B - representing our polish Vectra A/B/C owners club and forum, Vectra Klub Polska (http://forum.vectraklub.pl, check the "Foreign Affairs" and "Nasze auta" sections to see more of our Vectras (including pre and facelift C and Signums))

    Anyway, the point is:

    Please take a look at
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D30FCP9B334 and
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPL91_sMsVo
    and then give your vote for Vectra at http://www.tvnturbo.pl/news/432/view - by selecting Vectra and clicking "glosuj" to submit your vote.

    Short list of changes that Sonar (the owner) made to the car (2.5v6 '97) himself:

    - Xenon headlights
    - dimmed rear lights
    - "bad look" but NOT using lame eyebrows - by modyfying the whole bonnet
    - hand made car audio in white leather
    - hand polished engine cover (and a lot of other engine parts)
    - Omega MV3.0 camshafts +K&N + remap
    - lowtec dumpers + enzo springs
    - minor interior changes
    - Irmscher body kit and exhaust (bought on ebay, one part after another)

    Let me say that again: the guy did all of this (except for the remap) himself, and the list is not complete.
    Impressive, isn't it?

    Here's the URL to the thread with some photos: http://forum.vectraklub.pl/index.php...04&hl=sonarowe.
    It's in polish, but the pictures speak for themselves

    Best regards!

    Thanks guys, we really appreciate your votes. If you'd have any questions about the car or the mods - please ask here I'll be more than happy to answer them (I've owned a VB estate myself and when I'll finally get really rich I'll buy one again - in order to make it like this one )

    Although Vectra B is 12 years old (MY '96) it's still elegant and sleek - if cared for properly, still can catch an eye on the road. Beautiful car..

    To be honest - we were kind of surprised when we saw that it will be Vectra B vs Golf Mark II - it would be more fair (although less in our favor I suppose) if our opponent would be VW Passat B5. This particular Golf MkII was in quite good shape and you can see that the owner cares for it - but still, it should be placed against Astra I or Kadett (same era, same class).

    Well, vote as your heart (and eyes) tell you
