    the faclift grill has silver lines/ribs though it where has the pre is just black

    same with the lower grill!!

    and the shoulders of the chrome "V" section taper on the facelift and the chrome on the pre is all the same width.

    If he has an 06 plate Astra, made/registered in 2006 then he has PRE-facelift! Facelift versions started in 2007.

    As Low3sy said, the grill have silver round the edge of it and across the slats, and also across the slats on the lower grill.

    Also, not the fog surrounds. On the prefacelift versions (as seen above) the trim above the fog which on some is vinyl, and others is colour coded, its a piece of trim which looks like its stuck on. On the facelift versions they smoothed this trim into the bumper.

    Have a look at the pictures above and you will see what I mean.

    I do believe there was a prefacelift 3 door. Hunty-UK has got a 55 plate 3 door, so I can only assume that it is prefacelift.

    Now, however this is where is can get a little confusing. On the prefacelift models, the rear lights had a mass of white on them at the top where the indicators were. When they bought out the facelift versions they got rid of the white bit at the top and smoked it and made it almost black.

    However, with the 3 door, they only ever made 1 type of light as standard and that was the smoked "facelift" style ones similar to the ones on the latter 5 door models. Make sense? So this means that even if a 3 door sporthatch is prefacelift, it will still have smoked rear lights as standard.
