    No, my last car was an Astra G.

    Also he lists Astra H on his site, which will be the same as a Vectra C/Signum.

    Only problem with wiring them to the interior lights that I can see, is unless you fit diodes into the feed you take from it then it will also work in reverse, when you switch on your fog lights the interior lights will also come on (assuming you've got a seperate feed to your fogs and can switch them on manually of course).

    Of course it also means you can't use your interior lights while driving along at night because every time you do you'll be flashing your fog lights at other drivers.
