    Default Are they the same?

    Looking at the rear bumpers on an Elite and an SRi, it is only the bottom removable spoiler part that is different and the rest is the same.

    I want to fit the VXR rear spoiler section on my Elite and of course the central diffuser with twin pipes cutouts too.

    Am I right on the above or will run into troubles?

    Thanks

    You need the Sri bumper pal, the elite bumper hasn't got the cut out for the central insert

    You could try and cut the bumper to fit but I would personally just get the Sri bumper

    Thanks guys but this doesn't really answer my question.

    Ill be clearer; there's a separate strip running all the way around the bottom of an Elite bumper (the spoiler) & it's removable.

    The SRi one is too, so in theory I could possibly get an SRi spoiler & central dual exit exhaust insert & fit to my bumper as the rest of the bumper looks no different.

    This appears to be the case but I just wanted to check before buying both parts.

    Thanks

    I didn't realise the lower section of the rear bumper was removable on any model. I'm sure our standard SRI is all one piece.

    The bottom bit of the sri bumper is not removable as it is on the elite, the one on the elite is the same as a low spec vectra but with the bottom part colour coded.

    There is actually a piece like the lower part on the sri bumper on ebay
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...#ht_1187wt_905
    so theoretically if the lower part of the bumper comes off you could attach one of these and then fit the vxr bit in the middle...
    Does the lower part of the bumper come off on the elegance ??

    I have the same query, don't want to shell £100+ for a colour coded sri bumper just to have the cut out if I can replace the spoiler. There are quite a few spoilers out there that look like they're off SRI and the "rest" of the bumper looks identical, comparing both side by side, so the only issue is regarding the attachment clip points...

    The part in that link is a replica XP2/VXR bumper trim. You still need the SRI bumper as it's that, that holds the cut out. The XP2/VXR skirt is then bonded over the top of the bumper!
