    Have got a feeling its only the grill which would need changing ... but don't quote me on that one.
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    would the face lift model have a bumper reinforcement bar that could be taken off and used on the older model?
