    Default retro fit of optional extra

    have recently just bought an 06 vectra sri nav

    the spec is a little poor where i would have expected standard items such as rear interior light.

    Im looking to retrofit some optional upgrades

    the main question being

    If i am to fit parking sensors will it be able to be turned off with switch on dashboard and work with dash lights?

    Also wondering about HIDs is it possibile to fit them with the auto setting as if standard and will it work again with dash lights etc

    Also where is best place to buy new parts?

    was checking ebay but some prices seem ridiculous for interior map light and rear interior light

    any help would be great

    cheers

    hi
    any parking sensors will fit but you can get vx ones with a switch if you have a plug ready(cheak behind the bottom left blanking plug next to the radio for a socket)

    you can fit hids just make sure they are for the vectra c with cancellers

    best place for parts LMF VX CARSTYLEBITS and ebay or on here

    for you interior lights try lmf

    hope this helps

    Cisco parking sensors from Ebay are only £18, why do you need to turn them off?

    hes probaby talking about the factory fitted option system were you have a
    switch to turn them off,i very much doubt you will be able to use the factory
    fitted switch with after market system unless you go through the whole
    process in fitting the factory option just like i did on me signum,me
    personally dont like the cheap n cheerfull kits so i wanted it to be as if it
    was factory fitted,genuine parts costs bit more but well worth the cost and
    effort and doesnt look cheap job neither


    as ive always said if ya doing a job then ya do it properly

    Plus theres probably a HOW-2 thrown in aswell.

    andy.l shold be able to compile you a list of necessary parts as he is a 'factory fit' person lol

    think its something like

    Dash button (if you have the wiring for it)
    Roof Loom (if you dont have the park pilot connector)
    Sensor module (not got a clue about this one)
    Sensors (???)
    plus any wiring which will have to be done if any of yours isnt there?
