    Default Ordered Wrong Exhausts, Doh

    Well I finally ordered my bits from Irmscher last night. Got the matt door pins. The rear lower skirt. The Twin Square Exhaust Dual Branch. Ordered it but once i'd finished paying for it and checked, i found i ordered the wrong one. Doh... Had to phone them up this morning and got them to alter it. Phew


    Found a nice front splitter looks almost identical to the irmscher one on ebay,

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...B:EOIBSA:UK:31

    I'm looking for opinions on the boot spoiler. Not sure if i like the floppy eared type that rolls over the edge of the bodywork or the one that just gently arcs. I've seen one guy here or somewhere else do a nice job of spraying his at home looks a nice job. Not sure if mines gonna come out like that or if it will turn out like a 6 year old has been at it with colouring crowns lol.

    May be time to find a decent coachworks place....

    Off to work to pay for a bit more of it now...

    That front splitter is an Irmscher copy buddy. I've bought the very same splitter from this ebayer. One piece of advice though, whoever you get to spray it, make sure that they put plenty of elastisizer in the paint as the spoiler is made from fibreglass and isn't as rigid as a genuine Irmscher. My paint has cracked and needs spraying again.

    my advise is to have a body shop spray your spoilers as you will never get as good as finish yourself and by the time you have got the paint etc etc it aint much cheaper

    Bang on there matey, but it obviously sticks out further forward than the Black trim, so you still have to be reasonably careful.

    Unless of course you're name is Vectra2.0T and have lowered your car, then you have to be very careful.

    very very very carefull

    i.e no multi story car parks (spent 40mins in birmingham finding a suitable one)
    and reversing into parking spots to miss the kurbs

    But let's face it Paul, you should always reverse into parking spaces. So all is good.

    I love watching people trying to park forwards in a supermarket and shunting two or three times and still not be straight. Then there's the people trying to reverse out of the same spaces - even funnier.
