    Lightbulb VXR seats?? All the same? Or is Vectra Different?

    Hello,

    I decided a few days back, that I really want my wannabe VXR Signum (lol) to feel more like a VXR. So.. replica interior needed. What are the differences? I know the Vxr steering wheel badge.. sports button i presume? Anything else ie door cards?

    Mainly I was wondering.. are the front VXR seats from the Vectra the same as the other VXR seats across the range? With there only being 1001 Veccys.. Thats going to be hard to come by.. Also I have the 06 half leather interior.. does it match as well as it looks in the pics? Looks like the same trim..

    Would be handy for all you VXR owners to update me please

    As far as I know mate the seats across the range are all slightly different but someone may know better.
    They do pop up from time to time on eBay etc. IIRC there was a set for sale on here a while back.

    The Corsa VXR has more of a rally style bucket seat, the Astra is closer to the Vec.

    Vec VXR is the best tho lol

    Your in Germany mate. German Ebay is king IMHO lots of OPC vectras in Europe. Many spare parts to be had and as I think you've mentioned in another thread your good lady wife is local translation should be of no problem to you!

    I was looking for travel assistants in UK none, looked on German 'bay lots. Same for most parts. HTH..
    Ken-tec FTW.

    From what I can tell the frames appear to be the same as the standard seats but with different squabs etc, but I'll know for sure soon when I start my new job as I'm looking to build up brand new VXR front seats for mine but don't want anyones sloppy seconds

    You should of said about the travel assistant earlier.. Was almost going to buy one yesterday sat at 51 euros 40km from me, just for Italy to keep the drinks cool.

    Could of given it to you after. I'm not back until New Year so if you still have no luck, let me know and maybe we can arrange something

    They were selling like wildfire on ebay in the UK when I got the car back in May.. everyones on holiday now though so keeping them a bit

    I'll check out ebay.de .. Hopefully the autobahns created some bargains

    they will be slightly different as the astra includes the tilt forward mechanism to allow for rear passengers
