    Default Has anyone changed this part of the grill

    As shown in my poor diagram lol.


    Im very jealous of all you vectra owners with the sri style backing grill (like a honeycomb style), ive heard you can get this part quite easy, but im very aprehensive about how easy it will fit.

    Has anyone ever done it, and would it require serious modding? many thanks,

    This is the only part of my signum i hate, why isnt it just the same as the vecs!

    It requires taking the bumper off but can be done with basic tools. One of the guys from the North West meet fitted his in a shopping centre car park lol. He fitted an Opel one just using what people had kicking round in the boot. It comes as a complete unit I think - with the chrome V on already. If you pop along to the meet tomorrow night in Cheshire Oaks just off the M53 someone will be able to show you how it comes on and off. I've got a preface so different!

    I'm working away at the moment or else that meet would be very handy, good advice!
    Thanks

    and to be honest I'd think about leaving the bottom grill... Don't think it would look too bad.. Maybe lol?
    I'd just like to change just the backing grill really not like the whole bumper if ya get me, I just really prefer what the vectras have

    That will the look the dogs mate!

    You raise a good point because the vxr backing grill is different to the Sri isn't it?
    If they are a similar price I might get the vxr one.

    Autovaux might have this stuff no?
