Progress Thread Conor97 - Conor97 - 11:th-Jun-2018

Hi,

I’m relatively new to this forum and I wanted to start by introducing myself properly...

My name is Conor, I am 20 & I had been saving up for a Vauxhall GTC for nearly 2 years and finally purchased one outright from Evans Halshaw Vauxhall a couple of weeks ago, I am absolutely over the moon with it (Great cars imo).

I have a Vauxhall GTC SRI CDTI 2.0 S/S 165ps

It is a 64 Reg (First registered Jan 2015)

Also only 18,000 on the clock...

Even before buying the vehicle I wanted to do a fair few customisations to it and what a way to kick it off with a full LED upgrade...

The LED’s I purchased were:

- Main + Full Beam
- DRL’s
- Number Plates
- Reverse Light
- Interior Light

[Image: f378deff0ceb2a18ee669cdbdb306f35.png]

My plans for the future are as follows:

- Limited Edition Spoiler
- Body Coloured Rear Bumper (LE / Bi-Turbo)
- Limited Edition 20” Alloys?
- Navi 950 Fit
- Tinted Tail & Front Lights
- Interior SMD’s / Ambient Light Colour change
- Footwell Ambient Lighting
- Body Coloured Bumper & Grill?
- Darkened Upholstery?
- Dashboard & Door ambient rope lighting
- LED Tail Lights
- Roof Wrapped Gloss Black

Navi 950 & SMDs with the help of Rusty2009’s amazing magic.

Thanks.

I put 950 in my 2010 with dab+ and cam, I think for factory nav pretty good and obviously looks standard

Connor, where did you source your navi 950 and the LED rear lights? Your car looks stunning. A brilliant example of what can be done with a little time and effort.

The Navi 950 parts I sourced myself with help from Jpbroad & Rusty, the box and a few cables were supplied to me, I was linked other parts such as screen fascia etc.

The LED Tail lights came up for sale on one of the GTC Forums on Facebook.

Thanks pal
