vectra c grill modification

#1
hi all i love the look of the grill on the vxr with the colour coded top lip

is there a grill that looks like this for the pre facelift vectra c?

or do i just get the chrome bit painted or would that look sh*^ or could i get a grill trim off a facelift and make it fit my grill???

any ideas would be great,

sorry if iv started this in the wrong place(y) cheers dave

The Facelift grill cant be modded to fit the pre mate, ive tried, its just far too large. If you dont fancy splashing out on a Silver topped Irmy grill then a plane grill from LMF with a VX badge looks nice like the old Cav C or just paint your V but keep the badge silver. I always liked the OPC grill colour coded to the car.

ok got another 1 for you guys?

what about the newest badges on a pre face lift grill with the V painted star silver to match the car can it be done?

what about the newest badges on the wheel centres and on the boot lid aswell? to bring it upto date?


what do you think???

cheers for the part numbers ,i will check them out and see what happens(y)

i like the look of the grill with the matt black V that looks good,but do you think it would look better with it colour coded to match the car?

and i dint even think about the badge on the steering wheel that would look good to,i was thinking of painting the bottom part of the steering wheel like the vxr but without the badge on it.

cheers again

You can just buy the Astra H bottom spoke cover, it needs a little filing but it fits. Part number 93179295

I always wanted a proper shifter gate, but there's just too much slack in the shifter, and I think it would look a bit gash if not made properly.

that would look mint,all you would need is a good mechine shop,they would do it out of 1 piece of billit alloy, i bet it wouldnt be that much really either.

but reverse is in the wrong place for mine..
