    Vehicle : Vectra C 3.2 Elite Estate Auto Facelifted

    Trim : Elite with loads of "Extras"

    Engine : 3.2 Z32SE

    The bolsters on the backrest of the Sri go the full length of the side of the seat from top to bottom.
    On the Elite they stop about 9 inches from the top and there is a left to right section going the full width.

    I look at the front edge of the seat base; Sri leathers have a straight seat front between bolsters whilst the Elite leathers have noticeably curved corners.

    I agree mate, the stitching from the seat corner goes inwards at 45 degrees on the Elite seats but not on the Sri but it isn't always that easy to see from some of the photographs which is why I concentrate on the backrest design

    AFAIK there are only 2 "designs" although those designs appear in different formats, half leather, memory seats etc. But the looks stay the same although there is definitely a Sri/Gsi model with a "pull forward" knee adjustment option.

    Yes... But the main thing you need to remember is the rear panel difference and the bottom bolster, as said, curved on the elite, straight on the SRI/GSI. Basically a leather version of the cloth SRI/GSI/Edition 100's
