    Default Springs snapped.

    Well the vectra went in for a service today and unfortunately both front springs have snapped. So replacement Apex springs from LMF are on order.

    Expensive day, especially when An astra design sport hatch caught my attention.

    Yep 35mm front and rear Apex's. Happy enough with them. Don't want the car too low or would have went with the PI's.

    Hopefully fingers crossed should be here tuesday or wednesday next week.
