    Take time and search a while at ebay or in the for sale section. With a little bit luck and patience you will find one for less than half the price, complete!

    I've got a VXR setup on the front of my Signum, parts breakdown went like this:

    Second hand bumper with lower grills and chrome rings: £300
    Front Grill parts, Towing eye cover and VXR estate Side Skirts: £310
    Painting above items at VX: £330
    VXR Fog Lights: £50

    Sold front bumper with Irmscher splitter, Irmscher Grill and Irmscher Side Skirts for £630.

    You can do the maths yourself...

    eBay - I suspect the guy who sold it bought it damaged, tried to repair it and couldn't be bothered. It needed a bit of work with sanding down the repair etc, and I do need to reattach one bit inside next time I take it off, but on the outsdie you can't tell anything is wrong with it at all. Simply looking in the right place at the right time...



    If you fancy a trip to Germany...

    One thing that strikes me about that listing. If I was selling a VXR front end, I'd have pictures of it on my listing. Why has he got no pictures?????

    The ebay offer has two pictures.
    Btw in this listing this is not a VXR bumper. On a VXR/OPC bumper the downer part is an other, like you can see on penfolfds picture.
    In the ebay listing this in an OPC Line II bumper (don't know the vauxall name).

    I guess, this bumper will sold around 300€.

    Well when I look at it it says 'the ebay member has not uploaded any photos....'
