Vauxhall Insignia SRI Nav 2.0cdti estate
I’m a Self Employed Courier, Aged 48, Single used to live in Manchester now live in Preston.
I got into cars way before Fast and the Furious. Smokey & the Bandit did it for me. I enjoyed being out on the road with my car slightly modified. I then moved onto other cars and the Max Power scene started to evolve I bought the mags but only went to meetings that Id heard through friends. It wasn't enough and by the early noughties 00 I had invested in Broadband and was able to talk to like-minded people. This then progressed onto Shows, and then I bought my first Vauxhall back in 2012, and I've been doing 12-16 shows a year. I've made so many good friends through the car community and their new family.
I own a Vauxhall Insignia SRI Nav 2.0cdti estate. I bought the car almost new from a Vauxhall dealer back in April 2012. I actually bought this car as my ex-girlfriend's son was disabled and getting the specialist wheelchair in the hatchback of the old car was a nightmare so we needed an estate & this car ticked all the boxes. I never intended to modify it, I feel like a celebrity when I am in the car so many photos are taken of the car whether it's parked or moving. Don't buy the 1.8 petrol unless the 2.0cdti and 2.0 petrol are the ones to go for. Remove the rubber bungies under the doors the water gets trapped in and has caused all sorts of issues with other insignias.

Running are 2 x Bassface DB1.4 amplifiers at 3k rms each. 2x Master Audio Mid Bass amps and a Helix mini DSP and to finish a stinger led voltmeter. We removed the rear seats and added a shelf to house the Custom made Enclosure. It's tuned to 28hz and it has a custom detail pattern on the box though it can't really be seen.
Though housing 2 x BIG RED 15inch Bass Face Subwoofers inverted. we also added to the shelf a neon green rope led that comes on with the Bass Beat. We also added neon green rope LEDs to the front doors for those to come on with the Bass Beat. The roof lining we dyed it black from cream and all the pillar trims have been covered in black diamond-stitched vinyl. we also added the diamond-stitched vinyl to the centre armrest. Moving to the front the centre console has been painted neon green with a bit of hydro dipped trim in green lightning.
Its had a full smd conversion from the standard white and red to blue and neon green. the centre console next to the steering wheel has been hydro dipped in green lightning and we've added an aftermarket Pioneer double din in and are about to add a custom made frame with a tablet inside above the Pioneer we've also hydro dipped in the green lightning pattern, to finish off on the top of the dash we added a saas boost gauge and a sun protector over the full dashboard. All the door cards have been changed to custom and now house. The front cards are 3 mid-bass 6-inch speakers and a 3-inch bullet tweeter all made by Bassface and the rear doors are 2 mid-bass 6-inch speakers a 3-inch bullet tweeter again by Bassface.

We had to blow torch the inner arch so the wheels would sit right & not rub, all rims have 20mm Eibach spacers attached.
I didn't do it all myself
I did some of it but most was done by my close friends.. Robert Smith, Neil Brighton, Danny Jay Barnett, Scott Hanson, The Dip Monkey Garage did my Underglow kit and all the hydro dipping for me the bass box enclosure was made by Cornwall Car Audio installations.
Future mods... It's never-ending I want a bonnet mod now and wing vents
