    Default I'am coming down soon - full stop! ...

    Gents,

    Just to let you know that I'am working on a dream come through here currently. Brand new Bilstein B8's & Eibach springs (-30mm) all around and ... 345mm/292mm calipers and discs (VXR/OPC). Calipers will be painted red however. Goodridge Braided Hoses all around. Just can't wait for the parts to come in. I'll keep you posted ...

    By the way: I got advised to use the EBC Yellow Stuff pads the Vectra C instead of EBC Red Stuff's. Why's that?

    Cheers,
    Hans

    I believe Yellow Stuff are advised for Track used only mate. They would be a bit scary for road use, especially when cold.

    Hi there Rushy,

    You've put me in the right direction. It turns out to be just the other way around, apparently my supplier does not like to see me crash ... Their advice seems to have nothing to do with the Vectra in particular.

    Hi there Ditchp,

    You can say that again. I've been working on renovating my home eversince July last year, which does take a lot of time and effort. It was about time for a mod to the Vectra. Thanks for the compliment!
