    Havent a clue with the colour or alloys mate, But its niceeee

    With regards to plans, Gonna have a new exaust system on it, and the irmy things, Front grill, bumper and splitter.

    Either get a wheel refurb in anthracite or just get some new ones, Im still undecided on that!

    Gonna get rid of the rearscreen wiper, and the astra and vauxhaul badges, maybe get windows tinted and then finish of with some H.I.Ds.

    Also gotta de-restrict the air box and get the Vectra air intake.

    Depending on cost the exaust system I get might be cat back or get a full one manifold down, obviously replacing the manifold so its decatted!

    Thing is much like my saxo there will probably be other things that I decide to do along the way.

    Very nice car mate

    A mate of mine had the exact model and it was a really nice ride!
    You can obtain instructions for de-restricting the air box and installing a Vectra air intake by looking at the 'How To' section on this site.
    May give you more ideas of what to do.
    Your car cannot handle a driver of this magnitude!

    Air box derestricting is a myth

    Vectra pipe is worthwhile.

    Welcome anyhow, where are you from?

    Whereabouts in Nottingham?

    The VX badge in the middle of the boot will leave 2 locator pin holes if you remove it. - Just so you're aware.

    Yer mate cheers for the heads up

    I say Nottingham, That's a little bit of a white lie as its actually Derby, But I work in Nottingham (West Bridgeford) and whenever I'm out in my car its always Nottingham
