    Default SRI vs Normal Bumper

    Hi, I've recently purchased a 2006 V6 CDTI SRI Vectra, however the bumper is completely wrecked and Im looking for a new one...

    Could someone please please help me as I keep getting mixed answers from people that I speak to...

    What is the difference between the SRI bumper and the normal one? Will a normal bumper fit my model?? If so where can I get one as vauxhall main dealer are quoting £450++ which I think is ridiculous for a bumper.

    Just to clarify, mine is the latest shape, I think the bumper extends to the grill slightly...

    Please please I would really appriciate some feedback! Thanks.

    Most of front facelift bumper will fit to your car. If it's not xpack2 or Essentia (I don't know the name of this version in UK). Anyway it's pretty hard to decribe them in words so here's a link to thread where you can see pics of some possible variants.
    2nd one is SRi, Essentia one -page two. HTH

    The standard bumper :
    No front fog lamp holders (but these are easily replaced)
    Standard radiator gap (larger lower element)

    SRI bumper :
    Front fog lamp holders
    Different angled and shaped edges (cosmetic)
    Larger radiator gap (smaller lower element)

    The fog lamp holders don't matter as the bumper comes without accessories anyway.

    As the bumper may be being sourced from eBay UK, wanted to advise that the holders could easily be removed and the correct (or alternatives) fitted
    Can't do that on mine, only one size will fit

    The SRI didn't come without Fogs anywar. But as I said as the accessories can easily be detached (and rarely) will you get a bumper witf all the bits on it. Not for under 50 quid any way at least.

    Not on about a SRI bumper, the suggestion was to fit the fog inserts into a standard bumper
