    Default My Vectra VXR

    Picked this up a week ago 75k, silver lightning. Seems to have a few options as well

    -Full colour sat nav
    -Auto wipers
    -Auto dimming mirrors

    Its had a backbox at some point not sure what the make is though, sounds ok

    Short term plans are a full service then get the wheels done with new rubber. Then get a pre-cat delete and a map

    Only got 2 pics for now as shes dirty and we've had horrible weather so not had the chance to clean

    Looks nice. 24 silver lightening made I think.

    Exhaust looks a little like Miltek but sits further out.

    If you aren't on there already, there is a Facebook page "Vectra VXR Owners" that is very active.

    Bit of an update-

    The exhaust is a Milltek as it has a rattle from the drivers box and a slight blow, going to get it looked at in due course as it sounds a bit quiet

    Fitted led number plate lights



    New pollen filter and removed the stupid bung



    Oil change (bought 10l of oil) and a new fuel filter



    Give it a clean





    Had the car for a month now, returning around 27mpg which is ok I guess for one of these. Also gave it a good look over so I know what needs done over the next few months-

    - IDS+ needs replaced at the front, hit a huge pothole and my N/S front shock is leaking slightly. Going to stay OEM but fit Eibachs all round
    -Wheels need done badly, 2 are buckled so going to get them refurbished and painted next month
    -Few exterior changed, wind deflectors, new plates and holders and get the front bumper repainted as it has a but of lacquer peel
    -Evap valve is noisy , can get a new one from the USA half the price than VX. Seems to be a common fault with these
