    ... That is still deeply in need of a clean. Problem is after the run to college and back every day nearly and running around at home, she's almost this dirty again in a day! The inside is kept clean though.

    Anyone else think she's a bit low at the back? That's with a full tank of diesel.

    More pics soon when she's either clean or somewhere more photogenic!

    EDIT: The scrubbed out bit is where someone decided to draw someone's manhood on the back of the car while it was parked in college.

    Dear Cont1204,

    The SRi is slightly lowered than the standard cars but photo's can be deceptive. Look at it from the front at a lower angle and compare front wheel arch clearance with the rear from both sides.

    If one or both are lower then take the wheels off and check the bottom end of the coil spring.

    Shhhhh! Mine's broken on one side but too cold to go out there and fix yet. I have spring assistors fitted due to towing so they are holding it all together at the mo. But towing may have caused the break.

    The fronts are prone to going anyother member got some further info???

    Cheers

    Colin

    I had this concern with my SRi. When I looked at some pictures I took, the back looked really low compared to the front. Turned out to be the way it was parked and on a completely flat surface looked okay. I had a tank full of petrol so don't know if that made a difference as it's usually full anyway. As colin said, check the springs to make sure they're okay, if they are then I wouldn't worry. Here's the pictures of mine when I asked the same question http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116862

    I am on my second SRI and in both cases the back was lower than the front. Quite normal.

    If you look at the door handles from back to front, the front ones should be slightly lower than the backs. And yours are.

    Do want.

    Dowantdowantdowantdowant.

    I'd have to drop my undercrackers and bend over for the insurance man if I decided to lower it though. Although they weren't bothered about the de-cat.... Hmm... Oh Santa..
