    Default Are your bumpers a different shade?

    Hi,

    I've had a look through the forum, but cant see any thread about the bumpers being a different shade to the rest of the car. I have had a look on different sites , e.g Autotrader, Ebay, and have had alook at the vectra C's on there and about 90% are a different shade, but it seems their only a different shade at the side, looking straight ahead and they look an exact match!
    Had my new bumper sprayed and its still not the same!

    I have started a poll to see how many there are.You may choose yes or no and a colour too, But please only choose a colour if you answer is yes!


    Does anybody know why?
    And have anybody had theirs sprayed again to match?

    Thanks,
    Roy.

    p.s
    If you have a colour that I have not mentioned please state in the thread.

    All veccy's and signum's suffer from this. It's just the difference of the spray on metal and the plastic bumper's etc.
    If you look at spoilers side skirts etc that people have had sprayed up they are the same slightly different shade as well.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14625 - one with a poll.

    There are a number of threads - just type in facelift bumper colour to get a few.

    It's predominantly the facelifts it happens on and from memory it's due to the different plastic they used on the bumper, it just doesn't allow the paint to react in the same way as the metal/previous bumper.

    I didn't look through the whole thread so I don't know if he did get it sprayed again in the end.

    Hi Roy, I think Bainie started a poll on this aswell awhile back, mine looks ok, although it seems to change depending on the light reflecting off it..

    Mine seem ok to me, just been out to check. Its Met Black so maybe black is an easier colour match anyway.
