    Default My new Insignum front grill.......

    As the Irmscher grill has been taken off, I have now fitted the grill I wanted to do from day one.

    So I bought this :-

    Opel Version of the chrome Vectra C/Signum grill.



    A friend saved me the front grill badge off an Insignia which they were repairing in the bodyshop :-



    Add them together, it just so happens that the badge is the exact size as the Opel Vectra Grill and when fitted looks 100% factory.



    So bumper off, V-Grill taken off and the new grill section fitted. The good thing about Vectra C and Signum facelift is that the black grill behind is the same for Opel and Vauxhall to this part does not need to be changed.



    Here's the finished article. Very pleased with the result.









    It's just a shame that this wasn't done for the Total Vauxhall Shoot!

    I have also ordered the primered version to be painted Black Sapphire when my car goes into the bodyshop. This should look even better.

    What do you think?

    It' not that cheap if you have to buy the badge unfortunatly. The grill retails at £50 + VAT (Primered version is about £25 so not so bad)

    But the grill badge only comes with the Insignia front grill, which retails at nearly £150 + VAT!

    Thats why it has taken me sooooooooooooo long to do this mod, I was waiting until my dealer had a damaged Insignia which would need a new grill.

    Very, very nice

    Big ouch on the price of the Insignia bit though Shame they don't sell the badge separately.
