    Arrow Newbie requesting advice!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm due to pick up a Black 06 plate 1.9 CDTi SRi 150 this week and just wondered if there were any "must do" mods?

    I usually go for slightly rarer cars, rather than the mainstream stuff, but the Vectra took me by surprise when looking for a replacement to my previous car!

    I've come from a 1.8T Skoda Superb, which I added 17" alloys and a stereo system.

    I'm not into lots of spoilers/chrome/bling but I like my car to look good, drive really well and generally be something a bit special!

    Any information would be much appreciated!!

    I nearly did a 312mm upgrade on the Superb, but then realised that was the least of my worries...it promptly went back to the finance co :P

    CC the V makes the front end look a lot more aggressive along with Chrome fog surrounds. Get some Irmscher stuff in it too. The style icon to add to any Vauxhall. Door pins or pedals are a favourite.

    Other than that for a black veccy? Polish. Lots of polish.

    ...and welcome to Vectra-C.'

    mate! As said before, the irmy stuff goes down a treat. Try to get your hands on an Irmy Grille with the chrome top....looks the dogs but is like rocking horse poo! Also, a front end lower VXR Spoiler would go down a treat or even replace for a VXR jobbie!

    Make sure you get some image sup of your motor when you get it.....its the law around here.

    Also, you will get some proper sound advice on here about anything Vectra-C/Signum. Enjoy!!!


    Bye bye Vec B
