Choosing a Christmas present for your petrolhead partner can always be tricky, but if he or she drives a Vauxhall, there is a vast range of custom accessories and clothing available to suit everyone's budget.
If an image makeover is the answer, there is an extensive range of styling packs available for all cars and some vans in Vauxhall's range, including the new Corsa, Astra TwinTop, Astravan and Vectra.
From stocking fillers to practical accessories and everything in between, your nearest Vauxhall retailer can help you select the ideal gift, or you can buy most accessories online at www.vauxhall-accessories.com
Inexpensive gifts range from Irmscher-designed keyrings, pens and mugs starting at £2 to VXR branded baseball caps, umbrellas and fleeces. Sonax car care products approved by Vauxhall include a winter pack at £11 and an alloy wheel care pack at £21.50.
A portable DVD player that can be fixed to the roof headlining will ensure your popularity with back seat drivers of all ages! Available for Zafira and Meriva MPVs, plus estate versions of the Astra and Vectra, this sought after accessory provides high definition picture and sound quality, and is priced at £695.
For music fans Vauxhall retailers can supply and fit an iPod connection kit to enable this portable music centre to be run through the car audio system. The kit and mounting bracket costs £82.98.
Styling aids inspired by VXRacing include rear roof and boot lid spoilers for Meriva, Zafira, Astra, Vectra and Tigra - all offered at the fully-fitted price of £275. And there are no less than 12 different designs of alloy wheel to choose from, with prices starting at £399 for a set of four.
