    Vectra Sri 2.5 v6
    Hi all I'm rob how are we all? I am new to the vectra although my old lady had one years back witch she loved, well now I recently acquired my first vectra witch I actually got for free from a lady who was going to send it to the scrap yard as she couldn't get it to run, now the car is a Sri 2.5 v6 year of 2000, and I have to say was a skip filthy inside and out, i did get the cleaning gear out once I got it home and scrubbed like a mad man and I must say the cream leather interia came up lovely shame that there are so many scratches on the out side and laquer peel as I actually quite like the purpley color, now I must say she was hard to start but it had been sat for a while so I. Comited a sin by using easy start but she fired up and drove her home she was a bit lumpy and seemed down on power then I was about halfway from home and boom she was flying, everything works she starts on the button but wanted some advice on subtle upgrades and things I need to look out for as I wish to keep this car thanks for reading, find pictures at
