Has anybody got this setup? I think some Vectra's came standard with a space-saver spare?

Mine came stand with a space saver but I have a full size spare as they don't fit over the front brakes.

You are not supposed to drive with a space saver on the front. You are supposed to move a rear wheel to the front & fit the space saver to the rear.
I'm not sure where I read that. It may have been another manufacturer's recommendation but it sounds like a general one to me.

Thanks. So if not a space-saver spare then something like a 155 80 R15 should just fit in the wheel well.
