    confused Rubbish basic Loom to higher spec loom?

    Okay so ive got a Energy 2.0 DTi and its awsome. im 19 and its economical and cheap on insurance (1.9 is through the roof, before you ask why i dident get one of them lol). only problem is i want to get all the little modifications done to it make into a more speced up car as i am planning on keeping it for a long long time. but it must have the cheapest models loom in there is nothing behind any of the blanks. the only thing it seems to have is cruise control.

    i was just wondering if i got a interior loom from an elite or an SRi from a scrap yard would it be a simple un-plug and plug the new one? (i know it means taking the dash off and that obviously) or will i need new control modules and that? i dont want all the upgraded stuff just this minute i can do the upgrades as and when. i just figured id get the loom out of the way.....thats if its even possible lol.


    ta for any advice from anyone, Will

    I have an Energy and all i've done is fit an armrest from Mega Vaux (£40 delivered) , the air box mod, new mats, rear boot mat 4 me dags!! Did yours not come with standard Tinted front/rear lights, and nice alloys. As far as low spec you must be spoilt only being 19!!! LOL. did you not have to drive round in a shi*ter when you fist passed ya test!!!

    Don't consider cruise control an extra btw, it's standard on every model except the old Expression base model which was brought out with the original Vectra C's, but dropped soon after as no-one bought it...

    I remeber when all i had was a steering wheel!!! It never even had a tape deck!!! I was impressed with the spec to be honest. Word of warning. Check your crankshaft pulley for play. (As u look at car from front its on the left hand side at the bottom). Costs £150 to replace but it runs your water pump so can knacker engine especially the head!! Mine went last week and mine only has 46,000 on the clock. Supposedly its a comon fault on the DTi
