    Carbon Pillars?!?!?!

    Hey people,

    On my Gsi, the carbon stickers down both sides of the car are starting to peel off, the cold weather is not helping. Because they were put on wrong, the creases that were not flattened out have now froze and cracked off leaving me with blue paintwork peering through!!

    O what to do! Could I get them replaced under the warranty of the car! or do I have to pay for new ones! or should I just take them off!

    I thought about putting these on my SRi-T. I did this on an old Mk2 astra with the black foil (ina GTE stylee!) and it looked a lot better - I would have thought that they would be replaced under warranty, but if they aren't, I'm sure they arent too expensive

    They ARE a warrenty item, some dealers say otherwise. But they are. If you have any problems ring Vauxhall Customer Services and they'll advise.

    The whole lot is around Ł55 for the bits and a mornings work fitting them.
