    Default Been a busy 2 weeks of Vectra ownership!

    I initially bought my 05 SRi as a car for the wife for when our baby gets here as it was a safe car and came with a lot of usefull features (Storage, rear vents to keep baby warm/cool, isofix points etc) but it also had a few blanking plates which is a massive pet hate of mine!

    So 3 weeks into ownership i can safely say i love the car and after a bit of a spend i now have the following fitted.

    1) Map light and sunglasses storage.
    2) Traction control switch (despite it being a 1.8)

    With the following awaiting delivery

    1) Glove box cooler pipes
    2) Badgeless Grille
    3) Insignia jets
    4) 12v Boot socket and fridge

    Just wanted to say it loud how much fun it is adding these things to this car cos these mods are so simple!

    I want to add as many high end features to the car as I can get away with. I'm thinking an auto-dimming mirror with the interior light will be next and (at the right price) a sound system upgrade.

    Anyone got any suggestions what to do next? P.S. It has to be OEM

    Glove box cooler pipes? Do they quit simply divert cool air to the glovebox so your chocolate don't melt?

    Rear parking sensors are something i think we will really need but it would have to be the Vauxhall OEM system. Would this not require a different system in my car (ie my stereo is CD30 with triple line display).
