    Default White Insignia

    Notice a white insignia parked in Victoria Square underground car park yesterday. Had a good look at it due to the 'popularity' of this colour on here. Looks nice but.............. the bumpers were quite distinctly a different shade of white from the rest of the car. This made me look at a post on here of a rear end photo of a members new car, and yes its bumper does not match either!!!! Have VX lost the plot?

    Nothing new. Seems to be an issue with lots of manufacturers when it comes to bumpers. I guess it has something to do with the bumpers being painted separately from the rest of the body.

    Luckily not my one or I would have assumed she was accident damaged and badly repaired.

    Seems more noticable on the lighter colours though.

    Id agree, defiantly very noticeable on silver, can defiantly see it on mine.

    Isn't it due to the bumpers being different materials to the rest of the car? Spoilers are the same... Same with the Vectra's

    It also comes down to the angle the part is at when its sprayed in the case of metallics, as the flake lays differently so reflects the light different.

    When I had my accident in the VXRD, they repainted the whole rear of the car... no colour change at all, looked perfect.

    So it must be the bumpers are painted elsewhere and fitted later.. very poor
