Another English speaker here

Viesti Kirjoittaja woodenspatulas » 13 Loka 2011, 15:11

Hello good people of OCF!

You can blame irYobYetaMis for being such a good ambassador for your club for me finding you :)

I am the proud owner of possibly the UK's first Saab powered Vectra. It doesn’t stop there, I was among the first to ship over a rare Zender bumper from Germany aswell.

Here it is:

Im currently trying to find the matching rear bumper and rear trim from a 2002 Sport model to match the front bumper
I also own this to drive daily:

As you can see I prefer the Opel badge to the vx one!

Welcome to our forum! I see some preference to the Vectra B estates... :)

I was just reading yesterday the latest issue of Total Vauxhall magazine and they had listed some "euro style" trends and one of them was "Opelising" Vauxhalls... e.g. changing the Opel flash badges instead of the griffins (and there have been many even in the magazine). But the same goes on here, many people are "Vauxhallisizing" their Opels, and I have a Holden lion at the front of my Calibra myself... and it's not the only "Holdenized" Opel here. (the Laguna splitter was mentioned in the same article and you seem to have that one too on the black Vectra... :) )

But it's always nice to have more people at our forum from the UK also.

Thanks fort he welcome!

Yes there is a trend over here to opelize Vauxhalls. I only started with mine after I found the information sticker on the b pillar had Opel instead of Vauxhall! I think the estate shells were all prepped in Germany, so I'm just putting mine back to it's original state :)

Well spotted I have a laguna splitter on the brown one and a espace one on the black one. The espace version is deeper and makes the car look lower at the front.
