    Question Opelizing my car... (part numbers and help required)

    Does anybody happen to have the part number for the Centre Cap on SRi Alloys (5 stud and Opel badge). I have decided to Opelize my car - and think it will look silly with Vaux centre caps (I can't afford new wheels at the mo). The parts guy in my local Vaux stealer is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. He is good at getting parts ordered - but takes him days to find the part numbers, and I feel bad when the queue slowly grows out the door whilst he's fumbling around.

    Also does anyone know if swapping the steering wheel centre requires a new/replacement airbag - or is the airbag under the bit that I need to change? I've seen in the past that people have had difficulty in swapping the badge - so thought that swapping the centre might be easier!!

    If you want it to look like an Opel, just buy an Opel they're cheaper than Vauxhalls!

    Oddly, the only wheel covers that don't appear in my EPC (which is an Opel EPC!) are the Opel centre caps. I can give you part numbers for Vauxhall, Chevvy and Holden ones, bu not Opel!?!

    Same with the airbag cover. Wierd.

    Your parts man may be having the same issue I'm having?

    I already have the car I want, I just want Opel badges on it. No need to go buying a new car just for that.

    Maybe the Opel Astra didn't have the same wheels Do other wheels have the same centre caps??

    Is the airbag attached to the bit with the Griffin on? or just fitted behind it?

    Oh, all the parts you need appear on the diagrams on the EPC - but the actual parts dont exist in the database.
