Vectra Supertouring 200 - 0014

A couple of years ago, I owned a black Vectra ST200 (0018) but didn't have it long due to moving job and using it daily was far too expensive

http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=369381

I was straight online to see if I could get another though as they are brilliant cars but nothing ever surfaced. 2 years later I got a message from a fella I know saying there was one possibly for sale! I couldn't get down quick enough as these cars are so hard to come by.

I have done little odds and ends to this car and only plan to use it for shows & good weather. It is the replacement for my recently sold Nova Sport!

I've had the front bumper & grill painted, CDX Xenon headlamps fitted, 4 new original Mudflaps, cut down reg plates. Just planning to keep it clean & tidy and enjoy it;






Will try my best to keep the post up to date!

Aye, they had the yellow 'Flying Chip' badges on doors, bootlid and seats! Only 38 ever built by MSD of Milton Keynes. A pretty scarce car

My dad had a Vectra GSi Estate in black which had MSD badges stuck under the bonnet. There were not very many around and it sounded great when giving it the beans.

The Factory fitted Recaros were brilliant.

Always loved these, what a find.
I had an msd gsi as a stop gap a few years ago and despite it being a thirsty pig, I loved it.
Looking forward to this thread progressing
Ps, don’t know if it still is as I haven’t been on it for a couple years, but vectra-Sport.com was an excellent forum for info/advice etc with complete anoraks on there - helped me no end of times for random bits
