    Default My Ultra Blue 2.2 Direct (now with Irmscher grille)

    I've had my Vectra about two months now and I have taken my first step on the slippery slope of modding! I managed to get the grille from ebay for £27, proper bargain! It's not brand new as per the listing but I gave it a quick wash and its as good as. The car itself was also a bargain - 54 plate, 2.2 direct life, 24.5k miles, £3500

    Here's a few before and after pics. I couldn't wait to fit the grille so was out at 7 this morning doing it which is why its a bit dewy. I also put in my new silver indicator bulbs. She needs a good clean and there's also a few chips/scratches in the paintwork which I need to attend to.








    As you can see I'm still looking to a towing eye cover! And I need to get that thing lowered, just look at all that space between the tyres and wheel arch!!

    Is that a genuine Irm, grille. Has it got it stamped on the back. Looks awfly like the Grille I got off ebay for 39.99 brand new, just with the irm badge on it?

    Definitely the real mccoy. Has the Irmscher logo embossed on the reverse near the top. It's also very solid, not flimsy like I would imagine a fake to be or indeed the original vectra grille. I think the reason I got it so cheap was because the seller listed it as an "Irmsher" grille so anyone searching "Irmscher" would have missed it.

    Now, what next...I think I'll start small and work my way up, de-badge the boot, chrome side repeaters, bee sting aerial, chrome door pins...Ebay here we come!!!

    As Tadders says, once you start then there is no going back

    But its amazing how even the smallest mods like changing to chrome bulbs changes the look of your motor, it the wee things that makes a difference
