    Both have custom bodykits, bigger brakes etc.

    These are the specs for mainland europe.. I don't know for Vx and UK.

    You're right about the i35 and that Irmscher did an i500 Vectra B, but Irmscher also did an i500 Vectra C.

    The i35 is basically a Vectra GTC 3.2 with a supercharger and normal Irmscher bodykit.
    The i500 Vectra C was/is available in 3.2 petrol or 3.0V6 diesel form and has an exclusive bodykit, 20" wheels amongst a lot of other stuff.
    I think I'm right in saying that Irmscher now call their complete car upgrades - IS 1, 2, or 3

    Learn something everyday, I always thought it was the 500 was a Vec and the 35 was a Signum, utube shows it not to be the case though.

    The I500 was Opel's equivalent to the GSi on the older b's. Not to sure why they changed the format on the C's.
