That looks great, and in top condition too.

I see it's had the later 1 piece projector headlamps fitted too

The only car I would sell the Nova for was a Vectra ST200 and with being only 38 ever made my chances were slim but this one came up and the Nova went, not to mention I've just bought a house too so a lot of the money has went to that as well

Yeah I fitted the Xenon headlamps as a bit of an upgrade, I like doing little GM touches like that but not too heavy away from original spec

Would you consider fitting the aero mods from the gsi to the bumper, maybe the brake deflectors that fit under the wishbones?

Brake deflectors have push fit connectors into the wishbones and feed cold air to the brake disc

Aero stuff for the irmscher bumper fit inside and go to the arch liner I believe same idea but uses the holes in the bumper slats by the wheel arch

Part no’s

i2901040

i2901041

Believe they where fitted to the i500’s

They were based on the 2.5 V6 SRi Vectra but sent to MSD for the 'ST200 Package'

This consisted of;
AP Racing 4 pot calipers & 330mm discs
AP Suretrac LSD
4.45 Lowered Final Drive
Koni Adjustable Struts
Apex (I think) -50mm springs
Speedline Mistral 17" alloys
Omega 3.0 inlet cams - Taking power from 165 BHP directly to 192/197 BHP I think
Electric Recaro seats
Steinmetz Sideskirts
Irmscher Front bumper/airdam

I think that's about it over a normal Supertouring

Brilliant Car, can't say I knew much about them until this one turned up at our Club Night Show n Shine last year, it won first prize, well I was the judge perhaps its your first one, didn't get the build number, still in Scotland if it is.
