    signum matey, not vectra..


    To change them, you have two routes you can take...

    either go the whole hog down the VX route.. new backbox ( around £400 ) and a new lower bumper skirt set ( about £80 in black) Or..

    you go down the Gsi route......

    all i did to Mrs Gsi's siggy was to cut the 'downturns' off the standard box.. buy some nice pipe exits i liked ( yes, i did ask her first ) then weld them on to the existing standard box.. then i trimmed the rear bumper to suit the new tails....





    ahh.. the 'good old days'.... her car looks nothing like that now..

    Have a rummage around Ebay for a twin outlet GSI back box and a lower trim for your car. They are easy to change over and cost a lot less than Vx Prices. I paid £100 for an almost brand new single outlet SRI exhaust and rear trim for my Siggy Elegance. Looks much better now

    as there was no VXR signum, the insert won't fit your car...But, with a bit of cutting and welding the VXR trims may..

    the GSi lower trim doesn't fit the signum, nor do the GSi back boxes.. the exhausts follow a completely different path under the car

    What I meant was the Chrome tipped back boxes from the V6 CDTI / 2.8T.
    Also the Design rear trim (I think thats what mine has on it....)
