    Default Face lift styling, help needed!!!

    Ok, Here it is guys.

    At the beginning of march some **** decided to be impatient and reverse into my Elite. so off to the body shop for the bumper to be re-sprayed.

    Result, not a very good colour match, so i'm going back to the garage after them spraying different plastic samples to get the correct colour match as there are 5 different variations for silver lightening.

    So seeing as they have messed me around and the have to take the bumper off and the trim moulding, i'm going to take this oppourtunity for them to fit a lower spoiler, for all the hassle and spray the whole lot in one go, so as to get the correct colour match.

    My question is what spoiler is the best to go for, what price am i looking at, where to buy from. This is for the facelift Vectra, also how easy is it to fit, i don't want them cocking it up.

    All ideas, suggestions, links etc will be appreciated, need to move fast on this so i can deliver it back to them and get everything done at once.

    Two options are the 'Irmscher' front splitter and the 'VXR' front splitter.

    My preference is the VXR one, as it stands a better chance of not being smashed to bits the first time you park up to a curb.

    However, the Irmscher one looks really nice, but is very prone for accidents... costly !!

    You can get either from AndyVec (good prices & service) or your local Vauxhall Dealer (bad prices & service)

    I do agree that the VXR one looks more subtle and is likely to be less prone to damage.

    AndyVec, any chance of a price and delivery times on a VXR spoiler. and possibly a rook spoiler for an estate.

    Word on the street is that VX will be building 250 touring car reps to sell to the public front end is a bit of an aquired taste though

    Front bumper may be available seperately?

    really don`t think this bumper if its available seperately will be an easy
    straight direct fit as due to were it wraps around the sides as the arches
    would have to be flared out just like the 1 in the piccy and just wouldnt look right
