    Default Has anyone noticed.........

    The amount of vectras with sri style rear bumpers that should have back boxes with visible tale pipes which have been replaced with ones that are for models with hidden exhuasts i.e short tail pipes pointing down the way???

    Must be a big price difference between the 2 boxes if people are willing to fit the wrong one.

    Maybe it is dodgy kwik fit jobs, im going to hazard a guess that the oval sri style boxes are dealer only due to the tail pipe?

    The oval ones are a good bit dearer compared to the non sport ones IIRC...

    They are silly expensive. i think VX quoted me over £600 for a set of boxes on my signum. Its cheaper to get a stainless set!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The SRi style are VX only and are stupid money as said, but you can get pattern part versions of the hidden bumper type pretty cheap compared.
