    Default Vectra 2.2 question

    Hi guys, I've just bought a 2007 Vectra 2.2 Direct, which i've left with the wife in London (we're in the middle of moving from the Isle of Man) When looked at insurance quotes the Reg was bringing it up as an SRi. I didn't notice any SRi badges on it. Can someone clear up if there is a non SRi 2.2?

    bit of a daft question in know, but cheers in advance.

    SRI is the trim level mate Nothing to do with engine size. The 2.2 quite possibly comes in all the trim levels

    Has the twin exhausts and I think it had alloys like that.

    I must sound a bit of a plank not knowing about my own car, but I literally bought it and headed straight back to the Island. and haven't driven it more than the test drive at the garage. Pretty gutting to have a new car that I can't drive for three weeks.

    Just have to console myself with laps of the TT course on my CBR!

    IF it looks like this then it's an SRI. Vecs are often de-badged for some reason.

    Will have:
    black backing on the headlights
    dark rear indicators
    colour keyed cills
    rear bumper grille insert
    front fog lights

    and a few other tell tale signs

    Vehicle : Opel Vectra GTS

    Trim : Elegance

    Engine : 2.2 DTi 16V

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 75 000

    Default

    Yeah, and you just forgot to mention :

    Interior :

    - Sports seats
    - Aluminium instruments dials surrounds
    - Metallic grey dash and doors strips
    - 3 spokes (same color as doors strips) steering wheel
    - ESP disable button

    Exterior :

    - White side indicators repeaters
    - SRi boot spoiler lip
    - Chrome windows trims
    - Smoked third brake light
    - 17" rims (generally 6 double spokes, but may vary) (not always specific, though)
    - Specific front bumper with lower bottom grill, thinner rubber spoiler and different fog grills (fog lights are round - actually slightly oval - btw)

    And maybe less evident to notice :

    - 15 mm lowered suspension
    - Sports (slightly smaller and noisier) exhaust box and chrome tip (not sure the very last detail would differ from other models, though, maybe except for diesels)
    - Sports front brakes discs shields (cover only the steering ties rods ends)

    Really difficult to notice :

    - Tuning radius decreased to allow wider wheels
