    Default Pre Facelift- Face Lift

    Newbie Idiot question time!

    Whilst looking at SRI Diesels, the market is fully of examples ranging from ex taxis/ police cars to enthusiastically price one owner cars. So to start my steep learning curve here goes.

    I know the front end/wheels are different however what else did they change from pre facelift to face lift?

    Seriously there are so many thread about this, even during the preface's life things were deleted/replaced. There does not seem to have actually been a set spec, all models seem to have only had year to year specific specs.

    ahhhhh...

    dont have that then... The Vectra is yet another example of Vauxhall penny pinching at it's best... The bring out a great car IMO with loads of spec and then slowley take away bits of that spec the more the car is bought and stays in the range...

    Im supprised the VXR didnt come out without carpets, a dash, wheels etc all in the name of it being the best special mopdel they have lol...

    The best thing to do is to look at the brochures for each year (even which half of the year) to see what options a particular model came with. They're freely available on https://www.vauxhallproductforum.co....pid=11&cid=312

    OK, i might be being a tad thick here, but are you saying the later(more expensive) cars have less on them?

    Yes they got de-specced and only more expensive because they are newer.... having owned both a preface and two facelifts, I can honestly say the loss is of no real importance. the facelifts have better suspension too.
