    Default My Vectra VXR

    Bought from a Suzuki dealership in about May for under £11,000. It had 9k on the clock, full leather, sat nav and is the 280bhp version.

    Since purchasing I've added Team Dynamics PR 1.2 alloys with Toyo T1R tyres, VXR centre caps, Thorney Motorsport remap to over 300bhp, resprayed bootstrip and front grille, plus a couple of other cosmetics adjustments here and there.

    I'm thinking of starting a service for respraying the boot strips and grilles for those who aren't confident enough to do it themselves. I believe I could do this significantly cheaper than a bodyshop. What are people's thoughts?


    The day it was bought from Suzuki:

    No problem at all. I loved the bootstrip, but wondered about the grille once I'd done it. Personally I think it gives the car a more aggressive appearance. If I get bored I can always spray it back to blue lol

    The leather was an option I didn't really want as I thought leather seats go all saggy and horrible but these are superb seats - only downside is as they are full of electrics and heating they are heavy
