Well after more than year away from meets due to no car, here is my previous Vectra's replacement:

1998 Vauxhall Vectra SRI 140 (2.0L)

Mods so far:
HID Kit 6000k
Irmscher Double D Backbox
Mutant CD/MP3 Player

Plans:
I do have plans to upgrade all lights to match the HIDs as the fogs and main beam are stil the yellow colour.

Toying with the idea of an LED dash conversion, just not decided which colour yet. OR White Dial kit.

Also looking for some larger wheels as I have barely any clearance between alloys and calipers.

The Pics:

dash conversion is easy. i know someone who can change the leds in the switches. after that its a case of removing the clocks to change the bulbs. 20 min job
