    Default Newbie - Vectra SRi questions

    Hi,

    Sorry in advance if these questions have been answered before.

    Having viewed and configured an 1.9 CDTi SRI NAV XP on the vauxhall website I went down my dealer to place an order which I did. He sourced the car which is now on its way and avoided the manufacturer delivery times (I need a car urgently as the company car has gone back !). However I subsequently found out its the new 2008 model and not the 2007 with those 19" wheels which the website states are standard.

    I requested a price to buy and was given £1800 plus tyres by the dealer. Ouch.

    Can anyone please advise where is the best place to buy the 19" snowflake wheels and tyres and what I should expect to pay.

    To help offset the cost I will be selling the new 18" wheels and tyres and again would appreciate a view on what price I could expect to get.

    Finally what other changes from the previous 2007 model should I expect ie have the dark lights been changed, body styling ec?

    Any help / advise would be gratefully received.

    Mike

    welcome to the site.

    AFAIK there are no styling changes to the 2008 models, most of the changes were to do with the XP options.

    Snowflakes crop up on ebay fairly regularly....no idea what price, I've never been interested in them myself.

    And I would imagine your 18's will sell for around £500. I'm only guessing - 17" SRi alloys go for about £300 and they're fairly common now.

    I'm surprised that Vauxhall haven't managed to update their website yet to reflect the 2008 model year changes; it's a very poor show!

    The 2008 MY SRi NAV XP is identical to the 2007 MY car apart from:

    • 18" alloys (with the 19" 'snowflakes' available as a £400 option)
    • Style Pack 2 front air dam (a little more aggressive than previously)
    • VXR-Style Leather Steering Wheel
    • VXR-Style Leather Gear Knob


    Pics to follow tomorrow when I collect mine.
