    Default Too early to think about changing?

    I have had the vec now for just about a week and I have a problem. All the way through the process I've been after an SRi not an SXi. I could spend the money bringing mine up to SRi spec or sell it and buy one.

    The reasons I bought the car are long and varied and I won't bore you but it just strikes me that the SRi is a better car.

    Anyone any views?

    Is there a big difference in your sxi to a sri ?? engine or just spec ?? Remember badges are easy to change

    I's sure someone will correct any inaccuracies but I believe the SRi spec differs in the following ways:

    Trip computer
    Stiffer suspension
    different bodykit, alloys and lights

    I'm sure I must have missed something!!!

    OK but what do YOU want from the car. Like myself you can change the springs/shocks, get yourself front splitter and get it colour coded to match the skirts ect....

    Buying a car unless you got it cheap and then to sell it 1 week later may put you out of pocket. Is the jump from a sxi to a sri worth that much ??

    Default SXi -v-SRi

    I'd keep what you've got and spend cash personalising it.
    The ride will be better on the SXi too.

    definately keep the sxi, we got one and love it, to sell yours now you`ll loose money, prob a couple of grand

    sri 17s alloys ,3 - £400 (ebay or veccy-c.commer) sell your sxi alloys free adds for £200

    lowering springs £140 (fitted £200) lmf

    dark headlights £90 on ebay (sell yor clear ones on ebay for £95 ) =£0

    dark rear clusters £80 ish (sell yours on ebay £40)

    front grill (upper) £110

    can spray and fit boot lip spoiler for dunno £100 (guess) or fit dtm style replica for £200 (getting mine on monday )

    total just under £800 (why didnt i just buy an sri)
