    Default SRi?



    Can anyone explain to me what SRi stands for?

    So far, all i can find is sports rally injection?

    What makes a car an SRi?

    Mine has all of the above, apart from the lower profile tyres (215/55R/17) and the small lip spoiler on the boot. It's an SRi Estate.

    So i guess the SRi is just realy the trim level then? Apart form the suspension and the seats (with the side bits on)

    SRI used to mean a lot more a good few years ago , but now it really doesn't mean a deal, my sxi has almost all of the same spec as the sri, just another badge and another car now i'm affraid why vx havn't kept up the sports mark with the sri god only know's

    I remenber when SRi ment you were top of the tree, ( unless you wanted luxury and had a CD )then they brought out the GSi and now the VXR. I think its changed over time, now you can get a SRi with the slowest engine 1.8. I think its a shame that the badge has been devalued as it used to mean more than looks.

    So just out of interest then, can anyone remember when did Vx first used the SRi badge? In fact, didnt they use just an SR badge on the MK2 Astra I seem to remember?
