My old picture thread on here has been pruned I think (either taht or I can't search properly), so I thought I'd stick up another one. A lot of you already know my car, but some of you won't so here you go.....

Bought in August 2001, completely standard apart from some ET35 five spoke wheels, which I thought looked quite nice until they started scrubbing the rear arches if I had a car full :eek:

Since then, it's had the following mods -

Smoked side repeaters
Sportex back box
K&N Induction kit (I originally fitted a K&N Panel filter, but then got given the induction kit :D)
Cav GSI Trip computer
Five spokes replaced with standard SRi fan wheels
Bilstein dampers and matched -30mm springs

Nothing major in the way of mods, but it's our main family car, so needs to stay "sensible" unfortunately :lmao:

Here it is the day I bought it...


This one taken a week after Trax 2002...


These taken at Trax 2003. First one with my old SLR camera, the rest thanks to Olly Hewitt (from migweb).....






please ignore what looks like an aerial sticking out the top of my car, it's a fairground ride :lmao:






Last one for now, this one taken at Billing 2003, which was pre-lowering....


Not got many more since these as I've not been to any shows this year. Hopefully should be back on track for shows next year though :)

:lmao: cheers for that Dave, I have one at home that I tried removing the "aerial" on, just didn't have it here at work to post up. Not as good as your's though.

Don't suppose you feel like shopping out that little dent below the rear clusters on the near side on those pics do ya? If you're bored like :)

It was Kingfaz on mig that called it a shed and said that he hoped by the time he was 32 he wasn't driving a ten year old Vauxhall. :lmao:

That looks miles better on the proper alloys Steve...why do aftermarket 15's always look like 14's on Cavs?

Any thoughts on a de-badge?

Yeah, keep thinking about a debadge, just leaving the griffins front and rear and the SRi badges on the side. Or maybe even change the griffins (including the ones on the wheels) for the Opel logo, but it's been done loads of times before hasn't it?

Know what you mean about the alloys, they're the same size but look so much bigger.

Thanks for the nice comments, it's nothing special modification-wise, but I like to keep it clean :)

Andy M - Cheers mate, noticed your post on Faz's therad :lmao:

DanUK - most of the paint is original, apart from the driver's side front door and the drivers side rear quarter. Other than that, as far as I know it's pretty much untouched.

Spider bloke - I'll be looking out for robbers now :lmao: ;)

Not that often, to be honest. Usually only for shopping trips. Prefer to go to Yeovil than Salisbury though. Yeovil may appear to be a nightmare traffic wise, but Salisbury is ten times worse!!

Nice bit of road, the A30 to Shaftesbury from Yeovil. Provided you don't get stuck behind a tractor :lmao:

Same goes for the A30 between Shaftesbury and Salisbury too. Great fun late at night. Loads of twisty bits :D

Lovely lovely car mate. Didn't think they put XE in the M reg cars tho??? I would have thought it was an ecotec if i saw it coming. The fans look much better as well. Re-badge needed to C20XE instead of 2.0 sri.

So you can't tell?
lol,! The Xe's got the fan alloys as did ecotec. BTW the ecotec is 16 valve as well. Only the 8 valvers got the nasty ass wheel covers.

As far as I know the ecotec replaced the XE in the SRi in March 1994, so late L Reg and all M Reg SRi's should be ecotec's.

Nice car Steve - looks in really good condition. :up: I've always liked black SRi hatches.
