    Cool Signum front enhancement

    Hi guys, joined this forum yesterday. I've got a bog standard Signum 3.2 Elite. An easy enhancement was to change the bonnet and bumper grills (which look like the Vectra LS depite having a GSi bumper) for the Vectra GSi grills. Parts only £40 (for some reason the VX dealer part numbers suggest that the GSI units won't fit but this is bull) and the only tricky bit is to use a heatgun to remove the existing grill from the bumper before you bond in the new one. Changes the whole look from ordinary to meaty. Alloys next. Once I've worked out the techy part pics coming, Andy M

    Welcome to the site. My dealer did the same mod on their flame red 1.9 CDTi Design Signum. Can't beleive what a difference it made.

    Regarding wheels, I will have a set of 4 Vauxhall 18" 11 Spokes for sale by the end of the week from my Vectra SRi, fitted with 225 45 18".

    PM me if your interested.

    Just look in the gallery for any SRi or GSi Vectra with standard grill.

    Could be a couple of weeks for the pics. Have to work out how to put them onto the computer and then upload them; and I'm working for the next 10 days so ............and after that I have to persuade the kids to let me use my computer. The biggest difference is the bumper grill (Part £8 !!! if I remember right) but you have to change the bonnet grill to match. Like Matt says look at an existing Vectra GSi. If you've got the same front bumper on your Signum it's a winner.
