    Default help to choose which sri

    hi guys and girls.

    i just sold my mondeo ghia x with every extra and as i was a vauxhall guy before was wanting to come back and get a vectra sri.(please forgive me)

    now my thoughts are as ive come come from a diesel i want to go back to petrol (i seriously dont think that after more expensive fuel and running cost that a diesel is the way to go for my mileage) was obviously considering either 1.8 sri or a 2.2 sri around the 55 ,06 07 plate.
    what i wanted to know was on the older vec b the 1.8 only had a half info screen (no fuel etc computer) now does the vec c have the full computer all across the range and what gadgets are there now.
    and does it make a difference if its fitted with sat nav.
    what are the running cost and reliabilty between the two.

    many thanks, soon to be back to griffin

    If your wanting toys the Sri is the wrong car unless someone ticked all the option boxes when it was ordered, maybe look at an elite for a high spec.

    The SRi should come with a computer screen standard, but as byebyeitsagsi said, if you like toys go for an elite 2.2.

    Make sure if you go for a 2.2 it has full service history and lower than average mileage will be best, the 1.8 is more reliable but not available on the elite models.

    Just a thought - all the facelift Signums from 06 onwards came with colour satnav as standard, which includes all the info display options you could think of.

    There are some Vectras with them, but not as easy to find...

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi 140bhp

    Engine : 1.8

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60,000

    Default

    I drive a 2007 1.8SRi and average 32mpg, tho on a 200 mile run I did get 43 and that was averaging about 75 on the motorway. The info screen shows instant consumption (tho is mainly either 999.9mpg or under 20 lol), average consumption (tho understates according to using the torquecars mpg calculator), average speed and has a stopwatch. It's quite nippy tho you have to use the higher rev range to get the full benefit, 3kplus, and so far in the 6 months I've had it have had no probs (touch wood). You can buy the CD70 seperately if you want for the sat nav but thats about £400 from eBay.

    Martyn

    P.S. the road tax is currently £180 for a year as well if your wondering

    My 2.0T has the CD 70 NAV built in, cruise control, computer, air con etc etc - dont know what other toys you would like other than sun roof and heated seats neither of which I am bothered about.

    I have had my car almost a year and never reset BC 1 which reads:

    miles 7915.5, ave speed 27 mph, 257.3 gallon giving 30.8 mpg since i have owned it.

    current tank reading:

    202.4 miles, 35 mph ave speed, 5.6 gallons giving 35.6 mpg.

    not bad given the mods etc.
