    I'm getting a Vec estate myself and was thinking of getting something similar. VXR exhaust tips look great, I just need to know what needs to be done to make them fit?!?

    Vectra Estate use's the Signum rear exhaust lay out which is totally different from the hatch and saloon.

    You should be able to fit the Signum 3.0 CDTi twin exhaust assembly with no modifications to fit, then you will need to have the exhaust tailpipes extended.

    It is cheaper to buy the Elite rear silencer assembly as it has the turn down tail pipes, then remove them and have exposed ones fitted on extended pipes.

    Should be a simple conversion.

    It's a 3.0 Estate It has PDC on the rear....could that be a problem, because I see the guys here have the VXR difuser and no sensors on it

    You can mount the parking sensors in the VXR rear skirt. But you will be OK to mount extended tail pipes below your original bumper.

    Depnds if you want to buy new. The 3.0 assembly with sports tail pipes like I have is nearly £400 retail. The Elite version with turn down tail pipes is considerably cheaper.

    I would go down this route as you would be changing the tail pipes anyway.

    Let's see if I got it right

    I will need to replace this bit with the VXR one, extend the pipes and mount the VXR tips on


    Then I'll have to mount the sensors there...?
