    Surely you mean retro-fit the TC 'off' switch? AFAIK all vectras come with TC as standard...

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    Some early facelifts (up to early 2006 I think) had TC fitted as standard on all engines except the 1.8 petrol, exactly as on the pre-facelift. Since then TC has only been available from VX as part of the ESP or IDS-plus options, and ESP is only standard-fit on V6-engined Vectras. So if you have a facelift from early 2006 onwards and it hasn't got a V6 engine, and you haven't got ESP or IDS-plus then you don't have TC. Simple as. AFAIK ESP is standard across the range on Opel Vectras. This anomaly should be sorted on the Insignia as ESP is standard across the range.
