    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 55000

    Default

    Some one will be along soon to explain properly, but if you look on the VIN plate there is a code letter and that will signify where it was built, I can remember that mine was built in Openhim [ or however it is spelt] in Germany.

    They were built at Elsmere Port in 2003/2004, but Germany is the main plant now, Russelhiem I think?

    Or is it Bochum? Actually I think it is Bochum as I still have the build sheet for my old 06 reg SRi.

    X3's are built in America by a Canadian parts company called Magna!!!

    Vauxhall Antara's are built in South Korea at an old Daewoo factory, now Chevrolet.

    Some Astra MK5's are built in Turkey, and Zafira's built for stock purposes are built in Thailand. Customer specified Zafira's are built in Germany.

    Yup, you're right. The answer is, West Germany: Rüsselsheim.

    It's an irony really.

    If you buy a Merc C-Class, there's a good chance it will have been made in S.Africa. Same with some 3-Series, and most Rhd VW Golfs.

    So, if you want to buy a West German built car, buy a Vectra or Signum! (pre facelift cars were also made at Ellesmere Port).
