Cavalier GLS Smoke Grey 'THE FINIAL UPDATE, so to speak.'

As a few of you guys know I was going to pick up a cavalier and shes now home safe and sound. Its a M reg done just over 90k and is really clean for the age.
just gave her a quick wash not going to polish wax or clay untill a few things have been done.

so far i've just put my battery bag on and swapped the flat wipers over from the corsa.

plans:

gsi kit
fit sri skirts
spoiler
leather seats
nice wheels / 5 stud it

im just going to look after it and keep it clean.

On the other hand :/ not keen on these tbh.. looks like something a grandad would drive! as long as you like it though, and im sure a few light mods might help!

yeah headlights have been smoked, like the corsa depos. i never really liked them on cavs but its growing on me.

yeah think it might have, looks good :p

cambelt was done 10k ago, 2008/2009 hasnt been used much since then

Friend of mine has a calibra with the same engine and a 4-2-1. Looks awesome and you can feel the difference. I always liked the look of vectra xp alloys on cav's, was on a black one it total vauxhall once.

Not too sure if i like it to be honest, think it will be a car that grows on me once the mods start. modded cavs are very nice.

That's in very good condition. Shame about the driver's seat - they're usually pretty long lasting. But overall it looks like a well looked after car.

The air hose right by the dipstick - run your fingers along the underside every now and again. They sometimes perish on the underside and you don't see it.
