    How to determine if my astra is pre facelift or not?

    Hi,

    got 1.7 CDTI from 2007 (KD57 CGZ). I have chrome front grill and I want to change to black one.

    Problem I got is - I cant determine if it is pre facelift or not.

    Only other ID number I have found is (removed as advised).

    Can anyone help?

    Facelift Astra H

    Hi,two clues to identify if you have a facelift or pre-facelift car.....

    Pre-facelift 5 Door hatches have white and red rear lights.
    Facelift 5 Door hatches have smoke and red rear lights with a chrome edge.

    Pre-facelift front bumpers have a seperate piece of trim immediately above the fog light grilles, almost like an eyebrow(painted on higher spec cars and unpainted plastic on lower spec.)
    Facelift cars do not have this trim piece and the fog light grille has the top edge at an angle rather than parallel to the road.

    Hope that helps.....failing that have a look at some of the cars on here to spot the differences.....there are probably plenty of other changes.Peter.

    No extra trim element.

    So it looks like I got Facelift one. Thank you very much.

    +1 to respect.

    Now more trouble. Looking for facelift top grill - something discrete, in black. However I do not want to spend too much money (£60 is max).

    Any ideas? Checked ebay and nothing interesting there - only pre facelift or prices above £100
