    probably due to the GM financial crisis a few years back. great way of boosting profits.
    way to treat your loyal customers - take away good equipment that was present on older models but still charge extra for the privilege

    Tell me about it!!! I went from an 04 SRI 2.0T (Edition 100) to my current car an 07 SRI NAV XP CDTI 150

    I gained:

    Sat Nav and a far better sound system in the CD70 than in the CDR2005
    Rear door tweeter speakers
    Rear Reading lights
    Front Reading Lights
    Sunglasses Holder

    I lost:

    Traction Control
    Little cubby under side/head/fog light switches
    Storage in the rear seat center armrest
    Rear heating ducts
    Fully adjustable passenger seat (standard on Edition 100)
    Kick plates on front door sills
    Indirect Night Lighting
    Auto Wipers
    Anti-dazzle rear-view mirror
    Front brake pad wear sensor
    Warning Triangle Bracket on inside of rear hatch
    'Driver Seatbelt not fitted' warning tone
    Independent Boot Locking via keyfob or in driver's door
    Front Passenger Central Locking switch and door mirror controls
    Actual Door unlocked - now shows the same door unlocked when any of the 4 doors are open
    Plastic dipstick on Windscreen Wash Reservoir Cap
    'Car and Oilcan' Service Due Indicator - INSP on odometer instead


    As said, cost cutting, and really petty in some cases, VX even dropped the chrome effect trim on the bottom of the side windows on SRI's for a while during 2005.
