    Just no impressed with Vauxhall

    Decided that the GSi's wheels are way past the scabby stage as the inside's have corroded quite badly (mainly due to a poor finish after they were refurbed just after I got it). So debated getting them redone, but decided '**** it' Ill get some nice shiny new ones to go on it. Nothing fancy just standard GSi wheels.

    So Thursday I ordered them up through work, with ideal timing they were due in this morning which meant Id get them on today in time for Total Vauxhall @ Crail tomorrow. Rocked into work this morning and as planned 4 box's of wheels were sitting, however upon opening the box's I was greeted with 4 SRiT/Coupe Turbo wheels. Hmmm so half an hour of abusing the parts boy later we went back onto EPC to re-order them, this is where the problem arose, he had indeed ordered the right part number for GSi/OPC wheels, little more digging later we found that GSi wheels are now no longer serviced and their part number is now superseded with a new part number which then gets you some nice SRiT/Coupe Turbo wheels. Far from impressed.

    its always the same when you order and want something asap...it goes wrong!
    seems a bit weird that they automatically order a different set of wheels on the part number of a no longer serviced part....surely they no if you want a certain wheel its that wheel you want not an available alternative..

    Think Dave has every mark of vauxhall
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?
