    OK, I'm missing something or I have no VIN plate under the bonnet?

    OK, I'm assuming the VIN plate under my bonnet should be obvious? Somewhere on the bonnet shut plate as far as I was expecting?

    I rang Vauxhall up to ask for my axle weights - the sticker on my door pillar is not there because I had the rear quarter panel replaced under warranty. If I'm not missing something under the bonnet then why on Earth would this VIN plate have been removed? The front bumper was re-sprayed too a while back under Insurance (not mine!) when the front wing was replaced but I am lost why they'd need to remove the VIN plate?

    Or maybe I'm being stupid and I'm missing something?!

    OK, checking the Vectra pipe HowTo there is most certainly supposed to be a VIN plate sitting on the shut panel just above the inlet pipe...

    Not exactly impressed at this stage - stuck as to why exactly this plate would have been removed?

    Hmm..OK, so Vauxhall's official technical response to my question of 'What are my axle weights?' of 'Check the VIN plate under your bonnet.' is a useless one then

    OK, who's not reading posts correctly now Don't have that one either, was not replace when the rear drivers side quarter panel was replaced under warranty.

    Tempted to, someone else here did post the axle weights from their car which is the same as mine bar the LPG conversion - this is what I would prefer to know the true weights for rather than educatedly guess - don't fancy buying some springs and finding they are the wrong weight rating...
