  • This weekend mods

    First thing was the cruise control. Bought myself the stalk off eBay for a bargain price of £20. Took my vxr upto a m8 who works @ Vauxhall and he fitted the cruise control free of charge!!

    Had cruise control on my mk4 sri turbo so was beginning to miss not having it on the vxr. Well happy to have it fitted and even better that it only cost £20!!



    The next mod was some new wing mirrors.

    Wanted to do something a little different on my vxr, but nothing too extreme. My m8 at Vauxhall got hold of some nurburgring mirrors at a very good price so thought I'd fit them to my vxr. Took a while for me to get used to them but Im well pleased with the look

    May not be everyone's cup of tea......







    And the final mod, well not really a mod, was to get my private numberplate on. Got all the paper through from DVLA after transfering from my old car. Now it really feels like my car.





    Got it booked in at VXR Performance Centre on Wednesday for Full Remus exhaust, cant wait to get it fitted!!!!

    And also an Arden Blue rocker cover to be fitted

        Only paid £40 for the wing mirrors, what a bargain!! As regarding the cruise control, like many say on VXRonline all you need to do is fit the stalk and then take it to Vauxhall, say that the cruise control is not working and they will tech 2 it as long as the car is still under warranty.

              REALLY??

              All you need is the stalk and NOTHING else in order to get cruise control??? So just fit the stalk go to the stealers and they will map it to the car??

                  looks good

                  i've been thinking about pressed plates, how have you attached the front one on?

                  just thinking how best to fix it on properly but not end up with a bend in the middle and not looking right

                    If your putting pressed plates on the front you need to bend the plate. Used velcro on the front and rear, every strong stuff and has done the job nicely

                      cool, thanks

                      i'll just have to make sure i get the bend right first time!

                        I gently heated the back of the plate before I bent it to fit then secured it with sticky pads :-

                          Looking good m8, i'm just trying to keep out of the coppers way with my plates, anything on the plate apart from the correct font and GB they are pulling you over, someone even got done for having a garage name on it, even more reasons for them to pull you over now
