    Default Centre Brake Light

    I was behind an Insignia yesterday and was amused to note a rather retro feature about these. The brake light strip on the boot lid is red like old pre-face lift Vectra cars. I wonder why they have done this when the trend seems to be to make all lights look clear. I suppose it will give Insignia owners something to mod

    Probably something to change when they facelift them

    Could be, the Insignia certainly needs a 'bum' lift. Nice enough looking car from the front and side, but just ugly and wrong from the back.

    Is it not a trim level thing? My 3rd light is dark just like the rear SRi lights. Wasn't it just base models that are red?

    Yep smoked 3rd brake light just on SXI (from 2004 on), SRI and GSI, according to VX brochure. They also came with dark-style headlights and rear lights, and smoked rear indicators.
