    It is not a Zafira, you can't see the suspension turrets on the Zafira as they are hidden under the scuttle panel, this picture clearly shows them where the strut brace is ftted.

    I think it is a Vectra B. The picture is at a funny angle, the 2.2 is mounted on all the cars sloping towards the bulkhead. This picture has been taken to show the engine upright, so when looking at it at the right angle, the wing is pretty flat.

    The Vectra B also had the ally rocker cover like the VX but hidden under a plastic cover.

    Agree about the angle - very deceiving. Still not sure about the 2.2 G though. Look at the vents in the scuttle panel. Completely different to Nutty's unless they have changed them for the left hookers. :|

    It is a G, look at the shape of the bonnet slam panel. Exactly the same but the blue one has the VIN plate missing.

    But it can't be a Vectra B as I thought, it has after market bonnet lifters. Vectra B's had factory bonnet lifters.
