    Default Xenon's? Standard?

    I have looked high and low for this but i cant find it and my local dealership isnt much help either.

    Basically i am looking at the Vectra VXR255 version (for the cheaper road tax) and want to know if the Xenon's are standard on them.

    Thats all really lol

    Xenons haven't been standard on any trim level since the start of the Vectra-C range in 2002 mate. It's a ball ache cos the headlights are rubbish otherwise, and aftermarket kits aren't fully legal. It's one reason I'm looking at switching to the new Mazda 6 in the next few years as that has them as standard on several trim levels.

    On the plus side for you, the VXR's tend to have them more often than the others...

    Believe they were standard on the early GSI's, not sure about the VXRs though

    Yup, fair point - the GSI's did have them I think, but VXR's, definitely not...

    Yup - if a car has Xenons from factory fit, then it has to have both washer jets and self levelling, ie there is no way to manually move the headlights up and down on the headlight switch...

    The 2006 product literature for the 255 VXR shows Xenons as standard http://www.vmproductforum.co.uk/serv...XR06.5spec.pdf
