    Arrow Help in modifying my car

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm new to mod. world, but very excited to start working on my car. I've Vectra-C (obviously) 2004 Design 1.9 CDTi in its original face and reside in Greater Manchester area. Could you help me finding/advising on mod. I plan on doing me car? Also, the budget I'm looking at. Oh yes, it's in emerald green colour.

    Firstly, the side skirts, front/rear bumper have black strip at the bottom, which I intend be either replaced or painted in colour-coded. Also, I like the SRi rear bumper. I want to have two exhaust at the back. Do I need the front and rear bumper built for that?

    Where to find the Opel grille, and the price?

    The car has front fog lights, which I want to replace with horizontal flat LEDs. Any suggestion on that?

    It has 16-inch alloys, and I'm looking for either 17- or 18-inch alloys in grey or silver (not the shiny silver). The shape I like is the hollow (concave)-shape with 6+ spokes.

    Any suggestion is all welcome. Thank you in advance.

    For a cheap 'Mod'.... de-badge the rear and buy an 'Irmscher' chrome badge to put on the chrome strip on the boot - it looks so much sleeker IMO. and costs about £5-£7.

    Where to start lol,
    If you like the look of the sri bumper for the rear then get one, they usually just have a single exit but the insert is interchangable with the twin exit insert and the newer vxr insert (cheapest option at about 45 quid).

    As for the front bumper you could either fit an sri bumper or you could look out for an irmscher front splitter for the one you have as these are pretty cheap for the non sri bumper. This will dramatically change the look of your car. You could also colour code what is there already.

    The side skirts with the right prep can be colour coded

    There is a thread about led fogs going about just now here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=83972

    As for the wheels go to ebay, you'll get alot more options there than i can suggest, hope i've been of some help

    ebay is a great place to look for all stuff vectra, you can get some right bargain's if you are not wanting IRMSCHER or STEINMETZ stuff, fitting twin exhaust's can be done without the need for an sri rear bumper by getting a custom one made and cutting the rear lower valance to suit, modding your car depend's on 3 thing's....

    quality of part's ie:- OE-IRMSCHER-STEINMETZ to name a few...

    copy part's ie:- JDL-IRMSCHER COPY

    how deep your pocket's are...lol

    Default Thanks guys

    Yeah, I can understand it's stupid to ask such a question, but as I've mentioned I'm totally new to this and have seen really nice pics of mod cars. I couldn't resist asking this stupid question here.

    Anyway, you all have been helpful and would really start mod my car sooner and slowly (but definitely) except the engine.

    Cheers!
