    Default My Opel (Vauxhall) Vectra

    Hi, fellas!

    Well, here you go, just wanted to show of my car, as it seems fit here



    It's a 1995 Opel Vectra GT 2.0l 16v. 136hp, 0-100 in 8.9s and 223kph (138mph). It's a cheap and fun car, and this one only had about 77000miles on it when bought it in '06. No rust no halfassed pimpingattempts beeing made on it by previous owners (only 2 btw)

    This is the only thing i've made on the car, i changed airfilter for better breathing I'ts a 3" pipercross with my own adapter welded on. Turned out decent.




    I just had to get the car when i saw it on sale, as you can see above My dads car on the left and mine on the right, exactly the same model, year & color, only i have electrical windows in front and a sunroof, and he doesn't, he's very jelous of that

    Why an Opel and not a BMW M3 e46? Well, i hate loans, the only loan i have is on the house and thats it, I believe in REALLY owning stuff, and this was what me and my fiancée could afford at that moment. MUCH fun for the money though Btw it cost 25000 Skr (€2667.98, $4195.58, £2113.27)!

    kinda weird you and your dad have the same car. me and my dad disagreed on buying new black civics for us. so i let him get the civic and i'll choose something else. lol.

    Nice (not the smashed one)! Although it looks a hell of a lot like a Cavalier. Any plans on doing anything else to it? Tip: Do NOT buy any Savage products, they make the worst backboxes in the world.

    LOL I remember Novas. They were pretty chavvy even back in the day

    Vectra - wallowy barges, but they can take a huge amount of miles/company car punishment and keep going
