    first thing i've changed was the hi-fi system whith Alpine source, Steg amplifier and Res, Tec, JL Audio, Hertz loudspeakers and Calearo Shark antenna.


    then the light bulbs: as W5W the PIAA H222
    as H7 the Pilot Blu-Xe 4150°K Xenon effect
    as H1 the X-tra Super White Xenon effect
    as plate light the 90° LED high intensity cool white
    for the interior i've used some festoon led bulbs cool white for the tray, main light, the trunk,
    then I've created the feet light with the same leds but in blue

    next step was the air filter, a BMC pannel
    i've changed the original air intake with the one of the OPC version
    and i've derestricted the airbox and as colour touch i've painted the engine cover

    others aesthetic changes was:
    - the fog lamp air intake (I originally don't had the fog lamp) but now i've already bought the original fog lamps and i've just to install them
    - side indicator mouldings originally from the Corsa D OPC

    then I added a STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST

    and after the lowering springs: Eibach Pro-kit -40mm
    before after


    last exterior addiction is the GTS badge on the rear chrome bar (the Vectra 5 doors is called GTS, so why can't I?)

    i've installed inside:
    the new Azuga armrest
    door handles in japan black
    a new steering whell with hi-fi command
    and the BID (board info display) instead TID (triple info display) with Board Computer!

    it's time to change cockpit illumination! let's go with VW style!
    but a little problem occurred: the km display was broken so I've mounted the OPC cockpit in my car!

    last touch a piano black film in the middle:

    then i had ordered the front OPC line lower spoiler (fiberglass replica), and the irmscher sideskirts but at last i've changed opinion about lower spoiler and so i turned on the steinmetz one [the front OPC line lower spoiler (fiberglass replica) is on sale btw ]

    here the result
