    Default vec c-signum interchangable parts?

    been thinking about this recently, do we have a list of what parts, both electrical and mechanical will swap between the two, or can be adapted to fit without that much effort?

    how about the exhaust systems, will just the center pipe fit off the exhaust of the vec c for example (wouldnt mind knowing this)

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Pretty much everything apart from rear seats and body panels is interchangeable with some models (widely put).

    Everything in the front half is the same between Vectras and Signums and the Signum and Vectra C estate are the same chassis, so the rear doors are the same and someone's even fitted Signum rear seats into a Vec C estate.

    I hear what your saying, but just wondered if anyone has done a reference list, eg, i know the numberplate lights are different from the signum to the vec c..

    As Ian has implied, it'd be easier to list the bits that aren't interchangeable, rather than those that are.

    Surely rear doors are different between Signum and estate, as the Signums are curved at the upper rear corner - or do you mean the door skin minus the glass?

    Sorry, you're quite right, I meant to say rear door cards are the same...

    The rear doors are also the same length (longer than the hatchback/saloon ones) but yes, they're different at the top, my apologies.

    Not really, there's so little thats Signum specific, rear doors, boot lid, internal trim pieces in the boot, rear door blinds (if you have the factory fit ones), rear glass.

    As I said, the rear seats are "unique" to the Signum, but with a very small amount of modification to the floor pan (drill and tap a couple of new holes) fit the Vectra estate because they have the same floor pan.

    Beyond that there's not a massive amount of difference.

    Signum exhaust back boxes won't fit any Vectras, not sure about middle sections though.
