    Horses for courses, I would only add something to the car that made it more practical/pleasurable. As a rule I would not buy a car that I thought I needed to spend cash on, making an LS into an SRi, just but the SRi to start with, money down the pit imo.

    To be honest mate, tend to agree with you, mods I've done to mine are only slight and have only been done to improve it's driveability as opposed to perfomance, bought the Elegance model which has most things in it next to the Elite , the envy of SRI owners I reckon!! as far as the toys go that is LOL.

    It might not add value to it as far as the likes of Parkers etc are concerned but with each little mod we add value to it as far as we are concerned. It's a strange little feeling that nobody else's is quite the same as yours. That for me sums it up.
