  • bonnet seal

    I picked up my 07 build car back in November (carbon effect B door pillars and silver vxr door bades). I have noticed that with the bad weather when I cleaned my car yesterday that the engine bay is as dirty as the car itself!!!
    Should I not have rubber strips along the bonnet edge or not??
    A only have a black plastic slam panel fitted to the cross-member but no rubber at all

    Cheers,
    Clint

      There has been a few topics about these `weather seals` some say that they should be on the car and others say `not` IIRC they only cost a few ££`s from your local Vauxhall stealer.

        I think from what people have said on here they have been dropped for 07, but just take it back and say they are missing, thats what I did. I had to book mine in for a day they said it was warranty work so could not fit them myself.

            yes folks , they cost 3.81 or there abouts and dont even bother letting the dealer fit em , cos that means you gotta take your car in then either hang about while they do them or call back later , fit them yourself it's a 30 second job trust me i did my own

                        i've ordered and collect on Wednesday or Thursday under warranty. They will let me have them for free and let me fit them myself rather than book the car in :wink:

                            I didn't have them on mine and it is an 06 plate, got them ordered from the dealer and fitted them, just less than £4.
