    Wink Bad news and good news!

    Bad news:

    The Vec-C SRi XP has gone!

    I felt very guilty after it gave such good service around South Wales leaving it at Marshall's of Leicester yesterday.

    Good news:

    I now have another one!!!

    It's identical in every aspect, apart from sporting an 07-plate.

    Even better news:

    Vauxhall seem to have upped the interior spec and the new car has many more lights inside. There's 4 map reading lights (2 front and 2 rear) and the illumination for the drivers and passengers sun visor mirrors has been reintroduced. Oh, and the sunglasses holder by the front map reading lights has also made a reappearence.

    Even, even better news:

    There didn't seem much point posting pics of an identical car but it's going back into Leicester on Monday for a body-colour v-grille. Chrome to star silver may not be a dramatic change but I am looking forward to seeing the results.






    Oh alright, just one pic:


    I was due to get a black one but it's not quite recovered from its vandalism yet.

    I'd have a word with whoever put the number plate on, not only have they drilled through the E, the nuts look out of line in the photo, right one is higher than the left.

    And as Bainie just said the diffuser would look good, but you might have to do the twin pipe thing to make it work.

    Hmmm, could be the illusion created by the car being on uneven ground on second look.

    Oh, and nice car btw.

    Yes, I think the 1.9 CDTi 150 should have twin exhausts too. All SRi and SRi XP models have twin tailpipes apart from 1.8 petrol and 1.9 CDTi diesel.
