    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default My Trip to VXR

    gonna take a deep breathe before i write this because it did not at all go the way i wanted it too..... Day starts off with me leaving at 8am and i found every single bit of traffic possible on the way there. I got there at 11.30am and was greeted by Dave and Neil i think it was. Names went in one ear and out the other!!! I was too excited to be there....

    Anyways after I got a tour of place I jumped on to the simulator to wreek some havoc on Toca2. (once we had fixed the playstation/Tv cause it just would not work for me!!!).

    Ok, so i sit there merrily playing away while the guy changes my shocks. 2 hours later he lowers the car to the floor and i look at it and i'm not pleased. The front was supposed to drop down to compensate for the weight i carry in my boot. It didnt. After speaking to him it was decided i would need 2 custom manufactured springs to achieve this. Ok onward and forward to the remap...

    It turns out to be a version they havent got a profile ready made for. He wants to update my software to the newer version but the Tech2 units dongle decided to pack up today. The local dealer was contacted to ask them to upgrade it or upgrade it via the Tech2 handheld. The guy he wanted to speak to didnt return his call!....

    Its been left that i need to return at a later date but he has put himself out by offering out of hours work to finish it. Good guy. So i dont have to take another day off work...

    further post follows..

    So all in all I havent had nothing to eat all day, but plenty of tea and coffee. I ended up snoozing in my car for a couple of hours, doing some paperwork for another hour. I know its not all their fault because i know **** happens...... Just that it happened to me today

    I need to squeeze in a return visit before PVS but before/after it goes in for a respray plus the trip i need to take it to VX dealer for warranty work. I'm wondering if this is all gonna come together for me. Anyways a couple of pics of day follow.
