  • Has my bus got VXR headlights?

    As per title I'm sure my bus has standard headlights not VXR ones.

    http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/att...1&d=1225746303

    Took it back to where I bought from today due to it having some areas of black paint missing from a couple of small areas. One is on the very edge of the bonnet near the passenger side headlight and the other on the bonnet edge at the rear where it meets the window.
    In both cases its as if the top coat of paint has been rubbed down to reveal a white undercoat. At first it looked like where polish had been left on.

    Also there is an 'overspray' on the v-grille and front lower spoiler which they have tried to convince me is wax. The car is due back in for a 'paint technician' to look at all these areas and sort it out.

    Only after looking at other cars on here and seeing the black headlights am I really starting to smell a rat.

    Has my 08 'always owned by vauxhall' VXR been in a smash?

    The other reason I took it in today was when I came to look this weekend there's no wheel jack in the storage space in the boot.

          Exactly, all the signs pointing to it being in some sort of accident and not even having a proper repair. Am in there tomorrow kicking off.

              Will let them off that one, just read in the manual about where there is supposed to be a jack.

              Still not good about the front end.

                have a look at the Legs an under the head Lights
                also look for damage in engine bay
                i would pop into a MOT garage an ask if you could pop it on the 4 poster to take a look on the under side

                      North West mate, too many things pointing to it having damage, edge of bonnet missing paint, overspray on v grille, wrong headlights.

                        True, just a bit gutted when you pick up a car as new as that and it's obvious there's been some damage. Would of thought they'd at least try and make it unknown.
                        Wrong headlights, how basic is that?
                        Makes me feel worse for not noticing.

                            Cheers bud,
                            Had the car over a week and never noticed 'til tonight and been happy with it.
                            Just feel annoyed now and will give them some stick tomorrow.
