    Nice mate, deep down, I really miss my Veccy

    Paint the calipers RED

    Although, blue and yellow both go with silver

    V6 Sri, had it for 2 1/2 years, long time for me.

    Sold it for the Astra

    I love it even more than the Veccy, but, there`s something about Vectras

    Would be 2.6 most likely SRis as the GSis left MSD and went out straight to the dealers I seem to remember.

    Having said that, Vauxhall might have a couple of the press cars left. The GSi was at one time Vauxhall's flagship performance car so the press cars were tweaked more than the customer cars. They had MV6 cams fitted and some other things I've forgotten now.
