    My first impression of the facelift was ugly, compared with prefacelift. However, the more i saw of it, the more i preferred the more agrresive look and hopefully with a bit of careful styling will look so much nicer than a similar specced (i500 bumpers etc apart) prefacelift. It has won me over to point of buying one!!

    i agree the face lift is good looking car but they have removed some toys and the trim level has dropped plus the quality of the material has dropped the dash seems more plastic ..if that is possible ..but the signum is the car for me looking out for a 3.0d v6 .yummy

    I can't say that I dislike the new style of the facelift car, but unfortunately you get the distinct impression that all Vauxhall did was take what was there and stretch it outwards... there's nothing new about the facelift, and I much prefer the pre-facelift. Not quite so gawky and more in proportion.

    Didn't Vx do some changes to the handling of the face lift, so that would give it an advantage over the pre-facelift in that department.

    For me the pre facelift wins regarding equipment levels, however the more I look at the facelift model the more it grows on me.

    I prefer the pre (lookswise and eq levels) but would like to have the steering and geometry tweeks of the facelift model.

    Never mind, can't have everything in life or else what would we dream about

    The facelift model looks too much like a big Astra to me. I far prefer the old style with an Irmscher grille on it.
    Has anyone noticed how the new Astra estate looks quite Signum ish from a distance at the back or is it just me?

    As a former Vectra B driver, I hated the then new C when it came out...those headlights yuck!...but the face lift won it over for me...as for equipment levels...the facelift will improve with age...they always chuck the extras on toward the end of there shelf life....they did with the B as well.

    I can see there are going to be a few bised opinions here *lol*

    Pro`s and cons of both I reckon, I like the look of the facelift no doubt, but it is the new corporate image of VX, they all look the same, and the corsa will as well when it is out, the thing about the prefacelift is it is different, which IMO is why it has a love it or hate it kind of following.

    I have to disagree with Pte as well, the facelift I think is less aggresive looking than the pre, it is more smooth and chromy ...Which again I reckon put people of the pre as it is very in your face imho ....
