    Default Revised Front end.......

    Hi peeps!! Just been out and completed some mods on the front of my Vectra Elite. I have put mesh grille on which I think sets it off very nicely. Also I purchased sum chrome door protection strips (meant for car doors) and fitted to the plastic slats next to the front fog lights and also the plastic slats in the centre of the front bumper. Since I had sum left I used to round the outside of the rear lights too. Also chrome mirror covers, Angel eye headlights (which are so cool), eyebrows for the headlights & chrome number plate surround (do you think I like my chrome lol). Also put the Insignia style Griffin badge on the rear.
    I think its begining to shape up ok.
    All thoughts and comments welcome.

    It just doesn't fit the elite look. I'd get them off if I were you.

    Ditto, less is more. I'm a fan of the cleaner look. But it's your car and money so fair play!

    too be truely honest it looks like it ram raided halfords too much chrome on the front end and as said too many badges on the back

    debadge the backend lose the badges etc, lose the fuel cap cover and also the chrome on the lower vents and you will be back onto a winner

    just my opinion sorry

    I have been toying with the chrome near the foglights myself but was thinking maybe just picking out one or two lines instead of the rest.
