Yup, red with Irmscher and the part number I would say, same/similar to the SE5.
I've got a photo of one or two of mine somewhere, plus one from on the net /this site at some point.
Looks like the part numbers on the 'other' photo (not my SE5 ones, can't find them right now) are something like
Front: 7 27 03 909 Irmscher
Rear: 7 27 04 001 Irmscher

Where did you get (buy?) the ones you've just got?
From previous enquiries I've been told they no longer make the shocks(shocks are Bilsteins I think) and springs, , have asked various Vauxhall parts staff a few tiumes over the past years , always same answer :(

Try LMF for the bilsteins. The B6 versions are slightly uprated and the A8's are for use with lowering springs.

LMF Bilstein dampers

Good link Mark, just bookmarked that for future use (as I will no doubt need it at some point..!)
Those powerflex bushes seem a lot cheaper than I remember (not that £10 is cheap for a lump of plastic!)

i got them from someone on .com. He said he got them off here and they are definately irmscher, but i don't think so.

Don't make them? I thought there would have been some stocked up somewhere.

Ah, just looking at the eibach's on there. Should they be marked up with something or are they just plain black? it could be those that i have here.

I think they are standard ones but they do look a little odd.

I may have to go eibach, but i only want the fronts, and i have read that they are supposed to be -25, but end up being lower. That is no good as i have 19"s ready to go back on and with the irmscher ones, they are perfect!

I HAVE FOUND THEM! Called Vauxhall again today and they called Irmscher. It will take about two weeks to get them in from Germany.

The only thing is the price of these babies, £175.53 (that is including VAT).

Now looking at those Eibach ones, i can get all four corners for £179.95.
I don't need the back ones, and i have read somewhere that they actually lower more than -25mm. Does anyone know any more on this?

Nice one, must have a lot more helpful Vaux staff than I spoke to!
I think maybe it was the shocks they said were out of production, but to be honest the guy(s) I'd spoke to in the past didn't sound like they wanted the hassle of finding out..

I have paid for them now and asked the guy there why it was two weeks waiting for them, and he said they have to dig them out from the dark depths of germany. I think they may be making them!
