    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default

    I did my red car a good while back.

    The definative list is

    A bonnet, front bumper, 2 wings, headlights and if you don't want to mess about with the front slam panel you'll need to replace that too.

    When I did mine I used the original slam but re-welded facelift brackets to either side of the front panel. You'll also need to make a square hole on each inner wing to accept the facelift headlight fixing.

    A further optional mod is 2 holes on either side of the slam panel to allow easy adjustment of the headlights

    I did it on my previous Vectra, very simple if you're handy with the spanners and don't mind cutting, drilling extra holes here and there, go for it, you won't be disappointed

    P.S JohnIS3 - your motor look awesome in both variations, top marks
