    Ive just been and had mine swapped over today. Had the fronts to back. Backs are more or less new and the fronts were shocking by comparison.
    Somebody messaged me about a diff so when the bonus goes in at the end of the month I will look in to and i am ordering some Toyo Proxies!

    Any recommendation on tyres then mate??
    Also what's the best diff to look into? Quaife or wave trac? only online there is a massive cost difference.

    I'm wondering also if anyone can shed any light on this pre cat pipe removal? I know it's not a handling mod but just been doing some hunting and found myself on regal.

    diff wise most with one have quaiffe but only because the wavetrac is new.

    tyre wise I use hankook s1 evo now best tyre I've found yet for the Vectra.

    precat de cat pipe will increase flow but mainly it's noise that most fit one for.


    and jkemish no rarb doesn't need one

    Have to say ive driven my vectra down narrow winding country lanes and never felt the car act in the way others describe it and mines is on standard setup. In saying that I do want to lower it purely for cosmetic reasons as I find all vectras sit way to high at the front
