Bought this Sunday, drove it home from Wales (after a very civilised cuppa at the services with Dave Astra - thanks for coming out mate!) - it's great to drive, nice and strong excelleration, smooth ride quality, comfy leather seat!




(sorry about that last 1, took 4 attempts at it, that was the best. David Bailey i aint!)

Right, the spec:

1.8 16v (possibly the C18XE - will check)
256mm Vented brakes
14" Alloys (do you rekon Max Power would be interested in a feature :lol: )

Full, factory fitted black leather interior
Air Conditioning
4x Electric Windows

That's pretty much it.

Soon (very soon i hope) it'll be getting:

Mk4 SXi alloys (from my previous mk3 hatchback, they need a clean first tho!)
Sony HU/Focal 2way comps/Focal subs/Genesis amp from the hatchback aswell.
Ally door pins
MOMO Millenium Evo steering wheel
Chrome gear gaitor surround

Then, on my Christmas list is:
MOMO Race Evo Type S gear knob (ally finish)
MOMO Pit Stop Stell handbrake handle
MOMO Gand Prix pedals (in black)
Vectra chrome interior door handles
Colour coded exterior door handles
Braided brake lines
Clear/smoked repeaters

Then next year (hopefully before Billing) it'll get:
Koni adjustables
Some panels resprayed
Metal Monkey dials
Full LED conversion - but not blue
(I'll fit the carbon dial surround i've acquired at the same time)

Then sometime after that:
5 stud conversion
308mm brakes
Some form of 5stud Vaux alloys (Vectra Ph2 Gsi rims/5 stud versions of mine from a Zaf/What ever takes my fancy, and fits my budget at the time)

Oh, nearly forgot to tell you the truely rare thing about this car - the heater works on all 4 settings, the grill fits properly, and the rear heated screen works on all lines!

No, the passenger side 1 is broken, and it's just dark on the drivers side - they may be getting lightly tined tho - might hide some extra fogs behind the grill to make up for that.

i'm very very very very very very very envious of you kev :pout:

envy leads to jealousy, jealousy leads to anger, anger leads hate - hate leads to the dark side.


Don't hate me Ben, please :hug:

Your not wrong- i didn't even know they'd done a ph2 gsi grill (don't think vaux did, ph2 gsi's have ph1 grill/lights apparently).

So yeah - it's rare!

Enjoy your ride my friend!

Just one thing: I wouldn't change nothing standard to a MOMO thing, but that's your car... ;)
