Unfortunately ive once again let the coupe go... only been just over 3 months but the petrol over 8k miles in them 3 months has been killing me. So here is my new car.

Its a Vectra Elite 1.9 CDTI, 150bhp, 0-60 8.9 secs, top speed 135mph, and 600+ miles to the tank :love, being elite means all the toys Sat Nav, Heated Seats, Dual Zone Climate Control, Auto Headlights, Auto Wipers, Auto Dim Mirrors, ESP, Bluetooth and the list goes on... an exceptable compromise i think. much more comfortable, faster, more powerful and much more economical, only disadvantage is it isnt as fun to thrash as the coupe... but sort of expected that anyways :lol

Plans so far just involves making it stand out a bit from the other 1 million of them on the road... some irmscher door pillar covers, grill, SRI headlights (tatlocked), smoked rear lights, some redesigned plates and at some point down the line a VXR body kit + the 18" alloys.

Engine wise, will be getting a SRI and thinking of a remap to give it 180 bhp +.

As for the coupe i used it as PX and theyve already got it up for sale again... @ this link: http://www.chriswaitecarsales.com/vehic ... ID=1131834

Really hurts seeing it up for sale but petrol is no longer an option...

Heres some pics of my new girl.

very nice mate, used to have a red sri myself..

get a set of SRi alloys on it, tint the rear windows, and get the headlights blakcened, and that will be absolutely stunning

well the alloys are sort of growing on me.. they are 17" so nice and chunky but the 18" vxr's would be nice, but as for the lights + tints they are first on my list. im not sure if i should go down the tatlock route or just swap them for the SRI headlights... will have to take them off and c if tatlocking is an option with these.

mate i would go for the SRI lights, would be cheap enough... i was considering tatlocking' on my old SXI before i got my SRI, and the hastle was unbelievable.

Never tinted the windows on my sri,, but io know a bloke who did, same red, looked gorgeous.
I did see aswell, the chrome V in the grill..... the whole thing done red, the same as the VXR, looked fantastic.

And VXR alloys would be lovely.
Its a gorgeous car mate, i like it very much

Very nice! The face lift once are ace, i had a red vectra before my coupe, was only a 1.8 ls saloon, but i got some angel eyes on which really suit it especially if there black instead of crome, thing i miss the most is the ride comfort, and better stearing adjustment.
