    Unless it's a facelift, in which case it;ll be H7 for dip and H1 for main.

    I'm in the same boat. Thinking of getting these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...d=p3286.c0.m14

    Everyone on here recommends OSRAM, plus you get free sidelights and cheap postage. Cheapest of ebay!

    Tesco do single Emergency bulb kits for £3 (H1 or H7, plus indicator and brake)
    I bought four, I've only used one so far

    I had some Philips Vision Plus, but they also didn't last all that long in the Vectra C at about 6 months, they lasted two years in Vectra B, also the Vectra B needed them and not so bad this time

    Best of luck. My Nightbreakers both failed after only 8 months.

    Do they? I've not blown a single bulb in 2 years of ownership and 15k miles. Some of the bulbs could even be from its 2002 birth.
