    Yeah easy peasy, just have to drill and tap a hole and use a universal one off EBay. Fitted loads to my previous tarty cars.

    Very easy, small hole, wind a tap into the hole and put it in.

    Or get one off an older Vec

    I'm glad I got a pre facelift now, the amount of little extras they seem to have removed on the new one makes it a less attractive choice to me, and as time goes by I dont think the new nose suits the rest of the old vectra myself, really liked it at launch, but as an overall design the old style is shinning through for me.

    I agree Veteran - every time I see a facelift C going past I think "ooh, saloon Mk5 Astra...oh hang on it's a Vectra, doh!".

    The Vectra looks too much like an Astra now. All styled the same, just different sizes.

    Isn't that what BMW have been doing successfully for years?

    thats right, i thought it was a 'have a go at the facelift brigade' earlier on

    Its the same with Audi too, the front of all the range looks the same.... 'Corporate Presence' and all that1

    having the struts does suggest that vauxhall expect the bonnet to be up more than down tho.
