    Vectra b 150 Sri
    Hi I'm Gary. I've had my Vectra b Sri 150 for 9 and half years.(guess I must like it!) It's original with no mods that's the way I like it. Only 84,400 miles. Done some bodywork and replaced interior parts that were missing. New headliner fitted in December. Very shiny silver. Never let me down. Great 51 plate example if I say so myself. I will have to upload some pics so you guy's can see it. Was on z22se forum but that was more for modders. From what I've read here this is the place to be for Vectra lover's. Cheers

    Hello and welcome fellow b owner. A new headlining sounds intriguing. Would be interested to learn a bit more about that ie what was the reason for the replacement, did you have any problems with fitting, etc.

    Reason for fitting it was over vigorous cleaning by me.it is stretched cloth so too much water made it sag in couple of places. It's time consuming mate but not too hard. I got one from a great car breaker and did it myself. Lesson 20161224_130636.jpg learnt! 20161224_130636.jpg
