    Default HELP! have I ordered the right Fog light?

    Hey up chaps,
    PLease will somebody help me out here, as i'm going round in circles and getting very confused. Which bleeding fog lights does my Signum have? Is this an SRI bumper? do I need the Vectra 03 - 05 fog lamp or the 06 onwards which looks ****** all like whet i'd expect?

    Basically this is my car:-


    And this is the fog light I thought I'd ordered correctly to replac a cracked one, but now I'm doubting myself...

    I think your bumper is the face-lift sri one and that looks like a pre face-lift sri fog. But I might be wrong. Can you take out the damaged fog and check the part number?

    Meh, I give up. Can somebody make a definitive guide to OEM Bumpers, Grills and foglights. What came on what, and which are inter-changable? I'm guessing that there's some minor difference in the fogs, but after hours of searching the forum I've found nothing, except another bloke asking the same question last year, with no replies.

    I had no idea there was so many variations.....and not one guide.

    That's a pre-facelift fog light matey, wrong one for your bumper as far as I know.

    Look at the front of the Vec C's there are two primary shapes, the pre 2005 (ish) pre-facelift model like mine or the later model like yours. The main give away is the headlights are a totally different shape.

    The back end on both is identical, but the front ends are very different, bumpers, head lights, wings, bonnet, foglights, grills etc all different between the two.

    There are of course then different variations between each model in the range on each type too but those aren't so major.

    Thankyou Ian,
    I emailed the Ebay seller in the early hours of this morning to try and cancell the order and when I woke up they had sent me a full refund which is very good of them. I understand now that the light pictured above is wrong for my facelift model, but the complete absence of any fogs listed for 06 onwards on ebay led me to think it was perhaps the same depending on weather you had a "sports" bumper of a regular one.

    Ive since read somewhere that there's no aftermarket ones available for this model yet, and hence the lack of them on flee bay.

    I understand the fundermental difference between the pre and post facelift models with the headlights, but there appears to be so many variations, perticually with the grills, my head was spinning.

    So is the Bumper on my signum the same as an SRI vectra? and are the main grills specific to the signum, or do they come on the veccy too? I noticed some vectras pictured have a black plastic honeycomb style grill which I think looks better. Can these be cross fitted?



    Sorry for all the questions, but any advice would be appreciated.
