    Default Can anyone confirm what year the facelift was on a vec

    .... Let me explain a little more. I have been looking at a second vec around the 2004/05 age. Now most, if not all, are pre facelift with the pre facelift interior. However some are a pre facelift with a facelift interior + full and it's confusing the hell out of me.....

    Switch to full canbus was September 2004. Changes to bodywork were in January 2005 (IIRC). However these are dates of manufacture, not dates of registration, so it's perfectly possible for a 55 reg car to be pre-facelift half-canbus (though given the rate of sales of the Vectra, unlikely). And there are quite a lot of pre-facelift bodywork cars with full canbus wiring and features during that three month period before the bodywork changed.

    My 06 pre-face. A lot of the plastics are marked on the back with an early 05 date of manufacture so I guess it sat in a compound for some while.

    Mine, a standard (prefacelift), has a manufacturing date of 03 March 2005 (2005MY) and was imported into the UK on 11 May 2005, and was registered on 01 June 2005 (05 reg)

    I suspect the manufacturing date on mine is so late as it was a batch for the Y30DT engine

    When I had my first vectra a 55 reg facelift, my best mate also had a 55 plate, but his was 2 weeks newer on reg docs but a pre facelift model. They were both 1.9cdti club models, his had far more equipment than mine!
