    Default Hello from the US

    Well, I figured I would introduce myself. I'm from Upstate New york in the US. I just recently purchased a 2007 Saturn Aura XR, which is based of the Vectra. Like most things here, they put a lot of chrome on my black car, and I am trying to minimize that, as well as give my car some uniqueness. I am a big fan of the Opel grill, and am looking for that, as well as some black housing headlights, hopefully with the xenon lights. I am interested in any information that people can provide when it comes to these, such as part numbers, differences between type, wiring diagrams, etc. My car would be akin to your Facelift models.

    I hope to learn a lot here, and will do my best to try and understand the different terminology for certain parts.

    Thanks

    And lastly, this is my car:




    (I wish they kept the Vectra rear, or it was easier to swap. Much preferred over this one. Maybe if I am ever rear ended I'll have one put on)

    Rims are 18", but unsure of the tire size at the moment. Can check.

    And yes, I am looking at lowering it, but not til after winter. We just got two feet of snow a week ago. And the entrance to my driveway sucks for a lower car, so I need to get the city to correct that first.

    The headlights are the big thing for me right now. And then to figure out what to do with the tail lights. The chrome on the rest of the car can stay while i get those figured out.

    hi and welcome along to the forum

    a quick fix for your chrome would be automotive vinyl that seems to be readily available state side - would last 7 years and you could apply it and remove when your ready to sell - cheap to do yourself and very very effective - i had green side strips on my signum and green foglamp covers

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showpo...&postcount=101
    to give you an idea of how affective it can be

    ive gone chrome again now to match my new wheels -

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    You car looks longer than the vectra, perhaps it has a longer wheel base like the signum and vectra estate. Might just be my eyes and it being a saloon.
