    Default New here and questoins about my Partners Vectra regarding tidying it up

    Hey guys, new here, just looking at tidying up my GF's Vetra C elegance and need some advice.

    its a 2004 model, in black, is there only one black for this vectra? what would the colour code be?

    I'm after a wing, front drivers side, do these bolt on?

    also looking at splitters and skirts, maybe a small drop with springs, grills etc just OEM+ really, any suggestions?

    what are the bumpers like for removal?

    No job is too big for me, i bought my BMW 328i as a write off and here is how it looks



    so not afraid of a bit of graft.

    regards.

    Mike

    Colour is most likely black saphire but your dealer can tell you the real colour the front wings just unbolt and side repeaters are clipped in.

    Front and rear bumpers are easy remove front clips top and bottom and screws on the side, rear bumper remove tail lights clips under neath and screws down the side and unclips from the top.

    I see you've had to hide part of the 3 series behind grass though..... joking.

    Yes, the wings bolt on/off. The paint code will be on the sticker on the driver's side b-pillar, near the axle weights. It will probably be a 3 digit code, mixture of numbers and letters.

    Paint code will be 20R. Black Sapphire.

    Check on the plate before buying anything though.

    As far as springs are concerned you could simply swap to the SRI springs. I think they're either 30 or 40mm drop from standard but as with all VX springs, are prone to brakages.

    2004 will be a preface won't it? Perhaps an Sri/gsi front bumper with an irmy splitter?

    Hi, yes it's preface, I was thinking of giving it a facelift upgrade though with the wings headlight bonnet and bumper etc, shouldn't cost that much for parts and im a paint sprayer and a powder coater so can give the front end a complete refurb.

    I was looking at Sri gsi etc but google images being so random it was bringing up all images for all kinds of different models so I don't really know the difference between sri gsi vxr etc lol im not very clued up on Vauxhalls

    As far as I know the gsi and Sri bumper is the same. As for vxr, there isn't such a thing in preface (vxr replaced gsi on the facelift models) but is certainly an option if you intend facelifting the car. I tink (and I'm sure I'll be corrected) that to facelift a preface costs around £1000-1200.
