    Hi guys sorry I've not updated in a while.

    Since last time I updated this. I've had the alloys professional refurbished. Repainted the calipers front and rear.

    I was also asked if I would like to show my GSi at santa pod in June, for the 20yrs of the vectra GSi anniversary by the pvs team. I was honoured to get asked I wasn't expecting that. To be shown with another 8 on the pvs GSi stand.

    I've bought daily so the vec is only used on dry days and shows. I'm still trying to find storage to keep it out the elements.

    I'm in the middle of getting my spare rear Subframe striped and ready to be powder coated. I will fit uprated poly bushes were I can and standard were I can't.

    You can keep it at my place. There's lots of undercover/carport space, another couple of B's for company, four trickle chargers for the 5 vehicles here, and I'll even drive it regularly for you. :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    What's the difference in the NCDR1100 to 1500?
