    Default Xeon Headlights

    Does the Vectra C come with these as standard now? It looked like my old lights had xeon ones in them, when I removed the damaged ones. When I buy the smoked facelift ones will those be xeon?

    Xenons only come on the Vectra/Signum's with AFL headlights. Or Elite, GSi & VXR's.....I think...though someone else will correct me.

    How can you tell if you had Xeon ones fitted?

    Ah, it's just they look different from the old kind of lights I am used to on my old Vectra, Astras

    This is my old Headlight:

    If they have Xenons then the car will have headlamp washers as well.

    yeah, all Vectra C's and Signums come with Elipsoidal headlights (the dome shaped ones...) which look like the old Vectra B Xenon headlights:



    Pre-facelight Vectra C's with Xenons are either GSI's, which look exactly the same as normal ones, or have Adaptive Forward Lighting, as shown here:



    Facelift C's have xenons as standard only on the VXR's, and again they look like normal ones, unless they are the full AFL type, which look like this:



    So, in a nutshell, unless you buy a VXR or GSi, it's down to pot luck as to whether AFL was specified when the car was ordered. THis makes it very hard to come across, unlike the old Vectra B range, which had it as standard on the top CDX trim level...

    Which is rubbish, because they're excellent...

    Also, and easy way to check isto see if you have headlight washers or not. If you don't, then you don't have Xenons. They're a legal requierment to have them along with a self-levelling system...

    Also the easiest way to tell is if you have a level adjuster knob on the switch you will NOT have xenons as they are self levelling !!!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    I think what confused you mark2.2, was where ALL the vectra c's/signums have the dome shaped lenses.....which as said were only used on the Vectra B's with Xenons.
