    Default rear lights

    Can anyone throw some light (sorry !) on why some Vec C's have orange topped rear indicators & side repeaters and some have clear ? It can't be a trim level thing as a mate & I both have 53 reg 2.2 Elegances regd about 6 weeks apart & they have one of each type. Over to you...........

    SRi's and GSi's have blacked out indicators, so im sure its a trim level thing. Your 2 cars may have been ether side of a trim update.

    No mate, they're not blacked out. Mine has clear indicator lenses & orange bulbs, mates has orange lenses & clear bulbs. I've seen the smoked lenses you mean, they're a different type again.

    No mate, both were bought s/h, but if you start to take notice, you'll see there are both types on all ages. I'll ask the girl in parts dept @ the local stealers after the hols, she knows everthing, & if she doesn't,she'll find out for you !!

    My previous Vectra (53 reg Elegance, registered Jan 04) had the clear indicator lenses. As does my current 06 (Jul 06 registered) Elite.

    Normally if it has the clear indicator lenses, it will also have a clear centre LED brakelight.
