    Default VXR front conversion

    Has anyone swapped the front bumper to a VXR style? How much this would cost and what's involved etc?....

    Do you have an XP2 already mate?

    edit: this is in Insignia chat - whoops... yes, it has been done. Maverick looked into it when he got his Insignia but the cost of parts alone for front and rear came out at over 5 grand. I'm fairly certain they're reduced a lot now hough - there was a guy (3.2 VXR I think was his username) who has one on here come to think of it...

    Yes but looking at prices of various cars, I think the XP2 will be chopped in for a VX line Elite on 19s - but some of the insignia is not to my liking, and the front bumper is the first

    I'm with you on some of it though - I want to do sometime to the outside of my Elite bu the VX Line kit just doesn't appeal to me. It just looks stuck on and cheap... I'm waiting for the facelift to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March and see if it looks any better...

    thats the one!... Prices must be dropping now as there's a good few about and due a facelift. A good 6 month old VX line car with low mileage can be picked up for £14k

    (unlike the Vec SRI my good lady now has, I got it at 6 months old with 8k miles on and only paid £8999 for it!)
