    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Question Vectra rear bumpers.. what variations are their?

    Am curious about the Vec C rear bumper options... I want to change ours when the wifes factory exhaust gives in for something with a dual exit..

    So my questions are:

    1. Can you easily just change the lower trim?

    2. How many variations of lower trim are there (not including aftermarket JDL type kits)?

    3. Are there any differences between a preface rear bumper and facelift rear bumper?

    4. Will some lower trims not be compatible with these vxr styley diffuser type jobs or whatever you call them?

    You can get the original LS Design type with the rubber strip that can be removed and replaced with the facelift body coloured trims.
    The SRI type which I believe preface the lower trim was removeable facelift wasn't it was moulded. Ths allows you to put a single exit or dual exit or VXR splitter bit fiddly to change but me and my dremmel will sort it for you.
    Then theres the XP2/VXR bond on splitter which goes over the SRI splitter. The look is entirely up to you but full sports with XP2 is spot on.

    I have a facelift rear bumper on my preface Veccie same things mate just some small difference as above.

    I believe that the LS/Elite rear bumper is different to the Sports bumper, not withstanding the obvious lower skirt differences. I have always been lead to believe that the lower skirt off a sports bumper will not fit an LS/elite bumper. But thats the best part of this forum, proving these things wrong.

    she currently has a plastic lower trim, when i stick my hand behind it i think i can feel clips, there is definitely a join anyway.. she has 55 plate exclusiv and currently no exhaust exits..

    Still a little confused..

    I had the same mate but to go to SRI or more you will need to change it as I couldn't find an SRI lower that could be removed and its this SRI lower you need to put single dual and VXR exits onto.

    when you say change it, do you mean the whole rear bumper? I was considering that option..

    You can always trim the lower skirt I did this and ran it for a couple of years until my bumper came up on the bay
