          Very nice looking estate! This just deserves to be preserved in this pristine condition.

          That plastic trim piece covering the top of the bumper must be extremely rare. Surely the first one I've ever seen. I'm slightly jealous

            Yep they are rare on LXI and SXI estates only. Look forward to more updates on this as it's stunning

                      the alarm looks after-market to me. not sure who actually manufactured the vauxhall alarms but they had square siren, vauxhall branding on it. i had the remnants of a system in my gte, sensors inthe A pillars, weird switch tucked in the dash

                          Had her out for a run first of its kind due to the fact the weather promised no rain lol have got her polished up waxed wheel alignment done and air pressures set on the tyres bizarrely tho they had almost 50psi in them!! Knew the car felt bumpy well sorted after those things....tho noticed its fitted with 4x new verdistien winter tyres maybe have to swap them to somthing closer to oem supplied tyre ect anyone know or recommend p6000 ect? also orderd brand new black n red oem rubber mats ..my son also bought a bluetooth casette gizmo allows music from phone to play in the original radio lol quality not great but not swapping it out ect so 50 mile up no bad reports coolant change coming next some picutres!

                            Good to read your updates and see you're slowly working through the list of just jobs you wanted to get done on the car too. Well done.
