    Default Sri xp II alloys ! !

    Hi all, just had a look on the VX site at the new XP II spec, seems like they have dropped the 19" wheels, and are fitting 18 " multi spoke alloys instead ! has anyone got any good pics of these wheels, they arn't to clear on the stite ! what did surprise me though, you can now order the 3.0 cdti sri with the XP II gear on it ! ! ( about time )

    Take a look here, i prefer the 19" snowflakes.. The 18"s are awful.

    Yep. Agree. SRi XP used to be a cracking looking car, now it looks a bit 'gawky' if you know what I mean. Snowflakes were a much better idea.

    On others in the range, Elites, Signums etc, they look just dandy, but the XP was about being a sport model. They sit awkwardly with that IMO.

    The 19" snowflakes are still available as a £400 option.
    (but not on the 3.0 V6 diesel)

    No effence to your wheels m8, as alloys go they are fine, but side by side with the 19's ! ride quality must be behind this size down grade, i would like to see some 18" versions of the standard 17" sri wheels.
