    Question Vectra Trim Level / Year Strangeness..

    Afternoon all,

    This isn't that important, but I'm bored at work so here goes:

    The car I've bought, but haven't been able to pick up yet :

    Registered on: 2003/11/11 - 53' 2.2 SXi has body coloured door handles:



    This car registered on: 2003/12/26 -53' 2.2 SXi does not have body coloured door handles - but its the same trim level?! Is it because my car is newer, but was registered earlier than the other car which was older and sat on a forecourt for a lot longer?



    Anyway, not that important - was just wondering why!

    It looks like moonland to me (same as a 2.2 SRi Vec B I had).

    It could be because yours is an earlier car beleive it or not. Vauxhall launched the C with a lot of goodies when they first came out, but then started deleting/lowering the trim standards. Could be the later one is a 2004 MY car where yours is a 2003.

    Of course it could be the previous owner did a few upgrades, but still thats my guess.

    Chris, mine is an SXI, registered Sept 2003, came with the clear side repeaters & clear style rear lights when I got it. It was only 12 months old when I got it.

    The very early SXI's had black door handles.

    Then on 04 / 54 plate, the SXI's came with the SRI bumpers & lowered suspension, but lost things like rain sensitive wipers & auto dim rear mirror.

    Well that makes sense - especially the bit about Vauxhall taking bits off - did the price change to reflect that on new models?! Although I think I'd take the SRi bumpers over the auto dimming mirrors...

    Thanks for confirming the colour, I am desperate to get behind the wheel now - fingers are crossed for Friday - I've already got my new double din stereo + facia adapter & wiring harness all ready and waiting

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    The grey one is probably 2004 spec & the champagne one 2003 spec, a mate at work had a black 03 plate SXi as it looked better with the black handles, another had a 53 plate blue SXi (same as payney's colour) that had body coloured, I had an 03 Elegance as it had the coloured handles as well as loads other extras
