About Me
I’ve had this car for over 4 years. It’s been a pain in the ass but once it’s fixed it’s a great little car. Lots of time and effort has been put in to make it what it is today. There is more to come and hopefully I’ll manage to get it finished one day. Facelift insignia was meant to be just a workhorse for just journeys to and from work after my Last car Cupra K1 ate too much fuel. I said to myself no mods just keep it simple but that lasted long. It started like many builds with some wind deflectors, then proceeded to purchase new wheels, I opted for 20 inch Dare NK1’s over the factory 18’s then lowered 60mm on springs temporarily and from there I was thinking how can I differ from every other modified insignia? So I proceed to get a custom Powerflow exhaust with RS7 tips and then the VX-line body kit of which I still need to put the side skirts on. I then thought about going with Opel or Holden badges but everyone does that so I decided to go with the lesser known GM make and then became the only facelift Insignia (as far as I’m aware) to have the full Buick conversion. To finish the visuals off I added a carbon fibre Maxton Designs splitter and the Mighty Car Mods tow strap for a bit of fun. As for engine mods not much has been done apart from a Pipercross air filter and a home made induction pipe and heat shield. I’ve hydro dipped my engine covers. As for the rest of the interior nothing has been done yet apart from my rear audio boot build which consists of 2×12 inch bass face subs in a custom box made by Anderson’s box build and a Bassface dB 1.3 amplifier running at 1ohm . My plans for the future of the car is Air ride, new wider wheels going on in the next couple of days and a new interior and belts!
