sorted the headlights out with a 6000k h7r kit and had it aligned at an mot station, also got some doc Vauxhall day time running leds in there very bright match the hids.



got rid of the horrible blue display with a theme change software found on a polish insignia website.

scary!



after




and finally a pair of twin smokers like the bi turbo version



still need to get it lower and the wheels spaced out but plenty of time, loving the car so far done around 1k since owning it, value for money with all the toys

Nice improvements. Do the non projector lenses glare much with the R version of the bulbs? Also is this not a company car?

The beam patten is pretty much spot on according to the guy who does my mots glare is reduced with these bulbs, no it's not a company car

I drove past one on a forecourt today same colour as yours, diesel 60 plate 8300 it had in the window , is that about right for these I thought it looked too cheap, probably a base model with high miles ? Was half tempted to go back and have a look but didn't

Depends to be honest there's a a few different models, mines the Vxline nav comes with the kit and 19" wheels. The newer vxline has 20" wheels, then you have sri, elite ect. and I think 2 different deisel engines one 130bhp and one 160bhp

Number plate LEDs can bring up bulb out errors but the later cars don't seem to suffer with it mines been ok, people just fit a resistor to over come the warning

Think I'm going to look into one of these, never realised how much they were as never looked into it, whole lot of car for the money it seems and every time I see one on the road I can't help but think how smart they are there !

Never looked at the 130 is it the same lump as the 160 but with a different map? So could be mapped to 160bhp?

Never heard that either, dpfs normally become an issue at around 100k that's not specific to this car though it's more specific to anything with a dpf
