    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Factory Rear Blinds

    Bought some factory rear blinds second hand from a Signum last week to replace mine which are starting to get quite tatty.

    I knew the door cards in the estate and Signum were exactly the same so didn't foresee any problems at all and frankly got them at a really good price.

    Didn't think it through properly though did I lol. Although the door cards are identical and sure enough the blind cartridges and the plastic trims on the top are identical and fit perfectly I forgot to take the shape of the top of the door into account and yup you guessed it, they're totally different. Pull the blind up and it's slanted at the top instead of straight and nothing like the right shape for the top of the estate doors

    Not a chuffed bunny, oh well you learn by your mistakes, that's one set of perfect condition Signum rear blinds that will be heading to Ebay (unless anyone on here is afer a set).

    Oh well, on to the next mod, gonna have a go at spraying my roof spoiler up myself.

    Yeah, I should have known it was a bit too good to be true lol

    Just my luck recently, still, no point in moaning about it, I'm sure I won't have much problem selling them back on again, plenty of Siggy's out there that won't have them fitted and want them I imagine.

    Taken the time to try and fix mine up a bit as they were out anyway, Amy's patched one of them up with a few discrete black stitches and a decent ironing which has made a massive difference.

    You misunderstood me I think Ken.

    I already have the factory blinds fitted, I bought this car new and ticked almost every option in the factory options list when I ordered it.

    Mine are just a little tatty now thanks to the kids pulling them about and really need replacing, so I only need the replacement cartridges, my door cards already have the slots cut in them and the trims and the hooks in the tops of the doors but Vauxhall want £110 per side for the cartridge alone.

    I'll stick these other ones up for sale at some point when I can be bothered, but they only fit the signum and whoever wants them would have to cut the slots in the door cards to mount them as I don't have the cards.

    Yeah it's absolutely crazy how much they cost to buy replacements for or to retro fit. They were a £50 option (for the whole lot) when I bought the car.
