    rolleyes My latest bumper modification

    So, after a small deviation from the road on Saturday night, I now have a self-styled front bumper on my vectra.

    D'oh!

    Does anyone know if the non-genuine OE spec bumper skins on ebay are any good? Or is it worth holding out for a genuine one to come up second hand?
    Also does a facelift signum bumper fit the vectra?

    Mmm VXR would be nice..

    I have patched it up for now with some ally and rivets, and blanked out where the fog goes - will do for the rest of winter I think.
    Right, ebay time lol.

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Could always buy an aftermarket front bumper, test fit it, and if it fits well then get it sprayed.
