    SRi has a different body kit and sits 15mm lower. The Elite has lots more toys and is geared towards comfort.

    It's much easier to turn an Elite into an SRi than an SRi into an Elite...

    i want the toys like i had in the gsi so prefer the elite in that respect but not so keen on the suspension side so could i just purchase some sri springs and then it would be the same as the sri??? also will an sri backbox fit if i bought an sri bumper?

    yeah did plenty to my gsi looking through the how 2's so will be doing the same again

    These are Signums, but the principle is the same. First one is my old 2.2 Direct Elite as it came from the factory. Lots more toys over the SRi inside, but on the outside rather plain and boring.





    Then there is my current Elite - 2007 model with VXR front bumper, VXR side skirts and a few other bits. Lowered at the factory with the 18" alloy upgrade, and every toy inside... Best of every world...
