Well here she is. Picked her up on friday night after swapping her for my old L-reg Calibra 16V(xe).

She's J plate with 101k, FSH and I'm the 3rd owner from new.












She's in bloody good nik for a 14 year old pup.

On the list are 17's
(Kei Force 8's) and a drop in height.

Maybe some Opel badges instead? Yes/No?


Anyway thanks for looking





Its now 19/05/05 and have just had a Pi suspension kit and some 17's fitted.

Here's how she looks now.

Thats a very nice looking motor thre mate. Personally I like the GSi wheels so would say leave it and just drop it. Opel badges are a lot cleaner looking that the Vx ones so its the way to go.....god I miss my MK3

if you want to change the badges i'd go for some later type "chrome" griffin badges, like the ones on vectra's/astra g's. look much nice imo

Looking good there mate. :beer: Really clean too. Hope whatever you do, you don't ruin it by wacking Lexarse lights on it. :) shame about the mirrors........

Could do with parking that rear wiper so it sits level.

Nice one Daz all ready for the weekend eh ;)

We're down Sunday dinner time ish.
I aint going RTTS mate, it annoys me, there are always idiots up there who ruin it. Last year people were spraying cars with supersoakers which I dont mind if its water in them but it was BRAKE FLUID and urine.

Be careful mate. :cool:

If ya take a look round the Camborne/Redruth area give us a shout :D

Unscrew the retaining bolt, pull the arm from its spline and level it, put it back on the spline and do up the nut. :)
