    Default Facelift bumpers colour difference - does it affect you?

    has anyone else noticed that EVERY facelift C vectra has a different shade of colour on the front bumper

    I noticed mine was a slightly different shade to the rest of the car, but then noticed so is every other facelift C

    I now play spot 'the correct shade bumper' and have not seen one yet !

    I'm going to enquire about mine at the first service, should be fun

    'My' 06 Demonstrator was OK, I know cos I spent a fair bit of time trying to remove the huge amount of dead bugs off of it!

    Didn't want it to look like I was thrashing the arris off it.

    BTW, if anyone is offered an ex demo SRi in Silver Lightening, reg no VN06 RBY, I wouldn't bother!

    seriously have a good look at the next facelift C you see, the bumpers are a different shade, every single one I've looked at over the last 6 weeks has been a different shade

    you don't notice until it's pointed out, I didn't
