    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default Facelift - Prefacelift compatbility

    I should have probably posted this in the relavant sections but it saves having more than one thread

    Are the facelift sideskirts and pre-face ones the same? Is there any reason a prefacelift interior can't be swapped with a facelift one

    Both cars are sri hatches

    No issues swapping it at all, the only thing is the door strips on the door cards are different colours and the front dashboard one is a different shape so matching those up is harder.

    The front dash trims do physically fit with no issues, but there's a gap in the facelift one as the centre of the facelift dash sticks out further than the preface one so you'd need to cut the gap out of the preface one to fit the facelift and make something to fill the gap on the facelift one to fit the preface.

    Here's the two next to each other facelift one on the right.

    Did the elites have the same dash trims as the sri on the facelift?

    Other than the dash trim everything is completely interchangeable mate and even that is, but needs a bit of fettling as explained above.

    No idea, sorry mate. Both the ones in the pic above are SRi ones.
