    Default Pre-facelift to facelift Spec changes

    Hi guys,

    Im just about to buy a 1.9 Vectra SRI and have had allot of very good advice in my welcome thread. I have decided on the 150 SRI but I am still unsure on whether to go for the pre-facelift or facelift!?

    I do prefer the front end on the facelift but I would struggle when it comes to loosing all the toys the pre-facelift has.

    Now Ive done allot of searching and reading but I haven't found a definitive list of what was lost when the facelift was brought in? and most of the threads contradict each other... some say they lost bits and others say they didn't! There must be a spec list somewhere!

    This is what Ive found so far....


    - No auto-dipping mirror
    - No Rain sensitive Wipers
    - No auto headlights
    - No boot release button
    - No bonnet gas strut (replaced with metal bar to hold the bonnet up)
    - No place for my Warning Triangle
    - No Rear vents
    - Not as many 'cubby holes'
    - No curb lighting
    - No rear electric windows
    - No auto close windows
    - No rear lighting / cup holders

    Is this all that was dropped when they changed or is there more?



    Thanks very much for your help guys!

    Tom

    TC was also dropped as standard from th FL too... if you want toys look for a design or elite, then change the suspension to suit a sportier ride

    The cost cutting wasn't just for the facelift, most of the things you've listed there were dropped before the facelift. The kerb lights were dropped after the first year of the Vec C. Auto headlights were never available on the preface. Rear electric windows are model dependant, and the gas strut was removed so it didn't bent the flexible facelift bonned.

    My facelift has most of those toys however

    Cheers for the replies, so does the design or elite come with most of the those toys mentioned above? was it only the SRI that lost them?

    The main ones are the auto dip mirror, rain sensitive wipers, and rear electric windows.... I assume the mirror and wipers are easy to retrofit not so sure about the rear windows though!

    The elite should have everything although even they lost some of the cubby holes. The sri never had rear electric windows though

    I had an 04 SRI with:

    auto dimming mirror
    rain sensitive wipers
    steel sill
    warm console lighting
    lockable glovebox
    rear vents
    gas strut bonnet support

    All the above now not a feature on my 08 SRI, and being honest, the only things I miss are the rain sensitive wipers and the warm console lighting. I've gotten used to it as well as having a new storage space in the roof for my sunglasses and an extra roof light for rear passengers!!

    I think these are the only differences
