    I have to agree, it's got a kind of aggressive but oem look.

    Nice one

    Thank you :) Thats exactly the look i want as i generally loath anything non OEM !!

    The only thing non OEM is the exhaust, simply because Vauxhall dont do anything with an oval tailpipe,:lol: i went for a larger silencer to reduce the noise levels as i have a hoffman middle section. then i found out

    Well my partner cant stand the car, it too bumpy for her, and at 8 months pregnant, its not comfortable as she has SPD and is in constant pain, So i thought about getting shot and getting something like a volvo turbo...

    But i cant bare to part with it! So she is staying for the foreseeable future - il just have to think about getting some standard springs for it.

    Baby is due in 2 weeks anyway, so we will just use her vectra instead.

    Just bought 4 x new nexens for it which should arrive tomorrow as all the tyres are ready for changing.

    Thanks H :) Yeah not long now, although she is having a C section as we do not want to go through what happened with our 1st - wont go into details. but they haven't set a date yet due to 1 reason or another :/ but it SHOULD be around 17 - 19th !!

    I love the car to bits and kn ow it inside out and its faultless at the moment, i would be mad to swap for something with possibly loads of issues.

    Some guy came to have a look and had a drive, he declined to buy due to "dragging" in 1st gear.............................. He was trying to set off in 3rd o_O
