    Cool The Signum VXR. Ish...

    Ok, so it doesn't exist, VX never made one, and in accordance with that (and my own personal tastes) there shall be no VXR badges (or badges of any sort, almost...) on the car.

    Right, that should shut the complainers up...

    Anyway, since buying my Signum a few months ago I've gotten cracking with all the mods I've wanted to do to a Signum for a long time, and these are the results so far...

    Spec:

    2007 Vauxhall Signum Elite 3.0 CDTi
    AFL
    Park Assist
    Sunroof
    18" XP2 alloy upgrade
    IDS+ with Sport Button ()

    Basically, every optional extra in the book bar the towing pack. Which is good, as without it the car couldn't have the full imscher styling package including:

    Front Aluminium Grill
    Rear Spoiler
    Front Lip Spoiler
    Side Skirts
    Quad Exhaust system

    When I first bought her, she looked like this:







    I'm not a fan of Irmscher stuff, but seeing as the whole lot fitted and painted brand new would have come to about 1500 squid and I wanted the quad exhaust and roof spoiler anyway I didn't mind too much...

    Since then, I've done a few modifications...

    Traction Control Switch
    Ok, it doesn't work, but it completes the dash and lights up...

    CD70 with Reversing Camera
    Very proud of this one, even if it is more of a gadget than a useful modification...

    18" Multispokes
    Bought off eBay earlier in the year in preparation for getting this car... Fitted with 4 brand new Vredestein Sessanta 235/40/18 tyres and look the bees...

    VXR Front bumper and Sideskirts
    The first Signum I'm aware of to have the front VXR bumper, and complimented by the sideskirts. Another bargain off eBay, with the grill parts and sideskirts courtesy of Dan at LMF...

    VXR Front Brakes
    Todays mod, detailed below. Purchased from Maverick, and fitted with blue Goodridge braided hoses. Rears will be fitted on another day when I change the pads and discs...

    VXR Steering Wheel
    Taken from my old Vectra, and a very simple and effective mod...

    Quite a few things still to do - finding a cheap chrome surround trim for the front grill is the biggest one. It's why I haven't put any photos of it up yet, as it's not entirely complete and VX want 45 squid for it...

    A few pictures of todays fun, and some cheeky night shots of how the front looks. I've made sure you can't see the front grill as it's missing bits...















    All comments welcome, but if they're mean I'll cry...

    It's just the camera flash mate lighting up the arch. Under normal circumstances, it looks fine... once it's all finished I'll get some proper photos done...
