    confused Vectra C SRI Bumper problems!

    Hi,

    New to this forum, so please go easy on me but I have a few questions to ask and need answering asap!

    Last night I was driving a Vectra C, 57 plate SRI model (1.9!!!!) and I managed to hit into a post and the bumper broke and came off.

    I've phoned a few breakers and one of the breakers has the part I need apparently, afaik. Its a Front Bumper including fog lights and grills for £295 from a 55 plate facelift Sri in green.

    First i was a little confused, because I thought the Vectra C's didnt come in green but ok.

    Anyway, my questions are:

    1)Is £295 for the bumper and fogs a good price?
    2)How much do you *think* it would cost me to respray a green bumper to Silver?
    3)Would the 55 plate Facelift SRI bumper fit a 57 plate SRI?

    Thanks in advance guys and girls.

    Fahim.

    1) Think that is a little steep. Just a bumper should be around £70-£100 in good condition (meaning marks on it but no lumps or digs out of it), Fogs could cost between £50-£90 secondhand. So i reckon the whole bumper should be £170-£200 tops.

    2) Spray job from a garage is approx £200-£250 if you dont know anyone, if you do then its approx £150

    3) Yes as long as its a facelift it will fit. Providing you havent damaged any other fixings. Theres fixings on the slam panel, theres fixings on a plastic runner pop riveted to the wings and also to the wheel arch liner.

    Where abouts in London are you?

    Hi,

    Thanks for your extremely quick replies!

    I dont think anything else was damaged, or atleast I hope not!

    I'm getting worried now, its going to cost me a lot of money and Ive just last week resigned from my part time job! Oh great.

    I'm situated in East London - Wanstead/Ilford.

    The bumper should fit, but I would check just to make sure
    The parts price seems fair, if it is complete and undamaged (a OEM will cost you £500)

    My car is currently in being repsrayed by NCRC
    The bumper would work out at :
    4 to 5 hours, at £25 per hour, including blending
    The paint is about £50
    So say £200 at the most

    Grahamy, isnt the SRI bumper different to the normal Veccy C bumpers?

    I had a look on Ebay, didnt see what you saw! Wtf.

    Thank you everyone!

    The 2005 Bumper in black has no fog lights, I would have to buy the driver side seprately (the near side one is undamaged)

    What would i look for, for a fog light 'Fog light with trim'.

    Is there a difference in a fog light for the normal Vectra C's and the SRI models? any difference in how the grills are etc?

    Grahamy, you are a king!

    I also need the grill where the Vectra badge is because that too is a little damaged.
    Does it come in 3 parts like I've been told? (the bonnet catch, the grill and something else?)

    £130 quid from delership doesent seem to nice.
