    Lightbulb cut back spec?

    I ave read a few times about how Vx had shaved off all the extras when they did the face lift. I've been looking around for a new beast though and it seems the new 07 has many of the extras put back. Vx must have taken all the moaning to heart and actually done the smart thing.

    I looked at a brand new standard Exclusive against one that was a little older with a plus pack; the standard one had a rear light and cup holder which the slightly older higher spec one didn't.

    Prices are good at the moment, looking at about £15k for a new exclusive with...

    metalic/pearlesent paint
    diamond bright
    gap insurance
    parking sensors
    plus pack (17" alloys/front fogs/cdc 40 stereo)
    ESP

    I've looked at the design but it's £3000 more!?! and the SRI doesn't really have anything more except the suspension and I already have new Eibach shocks and springs to put on. So can anyone thing of a good reason to pay more for the SRI or Design?

    My guess is that they're upping the spec as Vauxhall anticipate losing sales to the new Mondeo that's about to be launched

    Have a look here. SRi, brand spanker, starts at £15734. Then put what you want on it.

    I can get a basic SRI for £15,300 but with all the extra bits I want (which the SRI doesn't have) it would cost way more.

    Why take the 1st yr hit Nut? there's quite a few SRi CDTi on 06 plates knocking around for the 12k mark, if it's toys you want, thenit will have to be a Design or Elite, my mate has just got a new Design and the inside of it makes mine look really poor in comparison.

    I think the SRi has a slightly smaller steering wheel, firmer seats, window tints, little things that make it look more sporty than the others. I'll just sit back now and wait for someone to come along and tell me i'm wrong lol

    Don't know yet but gap insurance will cover it, so it doesn't matter. Want to keep mine though so might have to cough over some.
