    Question Vectra Mod Bug - Been Bitten, want more!

    Having been bitten by the mod bug, I'm up for modding my veccy tastefully and attempting to keep it looking OEM (ish)
    It's a 56 2.0T SRI NAV in black.

    Mods to date-
    Sunglasses holder, Airbox mod, K&N, tinted rear windows,
    Parrot Handsfree, phone mount + Charger. It's only a week old so bear with me! lol

    Mods still to do-
    18" or 19" alloys, snowflake or VXR style, not sure
    Aux In for the stereo (thanks to the how 2)
    Auto Dim rear view mirror
    GPS Gatso device
    Extra Boot lighting (gets dark in there!)
    Footwell lighting front and rear
    Colour Code front chrome V Grill
    De badge rear Griffin
    Irmscher Door Pins
    Irmscher logos here and there
    Heated windscreen washers
    Laminated front windows
    Chrome Sill plates
    Caliper Painting.. red or green.. hmmmmm.
    Alloy pedals... irmscher if I can get them at a good price.

    Mods i'm thinking about-
    7" Headrest built in DVD Players (ebay job)
    Stage1 BSR
    Hacking the NAV CD for Gatso POI's (I will attempt it anyway!)

    Any others that peeps can think of? I'm not the type to go blinging it up with Chrome handles and such, or the fog surrounds etc. Like it all black with the mods barely noticable unless someones a vectra fan....

    Yeah I joined when I got my first Vectra C, the silver one on the right.

    Didn't do much modding to it, just the bits I've already done, and painted the calipers. That was it. Luckily the pre-facelifts came with a lot more than the new ones do, so it's a lot of retro fitting bits I miss, and thinking I'd like a bit more! hehe.

    Am now thinking of changing the dash under the steering wheel to keep the little change box, and the rear center arm rest as its hollow and I used to keep my Vauxhall Manuals and stuff in there. Such a shame they got rid of so much.

    Don't worry, I'll document and photo all the changes I make.. but won't put them up until I know it works!..

    Parking sensors is another one I'll need to do. Reversed my old Astra into scaffolding and nearly took down half a building!

    Totally agree, they're easy to park but when I visit the missus the parking's a nightmare and I have to squeeze into all kinds of spaces.

    No drilling or holes for me, going the invisible route.

    Might do the same in the front if I can..

    I'm hoping not. Budget is stretching a long way to do the list above.
    I might try a mod box first to get a taste, then do the remap option.

    I've gone from driving a 1.8 vec B, to a 2.2 vec c with what 147bhp? to
    my 2.0t at 175 which is fun as ****, I'm thinking 215 should be more than enough for me...

    I do a LOT of miles anyway so any more power and the fuel figures drop.
