    What spec and year is your car? On earlier models they were on the slam pannel under the bonnet on the later models they are on the drivers door shut.

    There is that . I only found out when i went to Vauxhall and asked why i didnt have a vin plate on the slam pannel and then they told me that they have been moved.

    They guy did say i may have one in the boot but this is only on some models.
