    Smile Finally back...

    Hi,

    As some of you know, I've been looking for quite some time now for the right car/spec and finally come across this... collected it yesterday.
    At the moment these are the only pictures I have (Dealer photos)

    I have a few mods in mind but for now I'm just pleased to be out of the Vectra and back in an Audi.

    I will upload more pics/details when I get a few moments. In the meantime here goes...

    Comments welcome
