    Default Facelift questions

    I have a facelift 55 plate, 1.9 SRi, CDTi (150) registered on 1 January 2006.

    My mate has an 06 plate, 1.9 SRi, CDTi (150) registered on 1 April 2006. There are a couple of differences that are puzzling me:

    1. I have a round, leather gear knob. He has a silver topped, sporty version (not aftermarket). Were there a number of options?
    2. Under the rev counter on the 06 version there is a little oblong computer display section - but not on my car. What is it? (BTW he has CD70 and NAV - mine is CD30 and no NAV).
    3. On the 06 version, the passenger door, electric window control has three buttons - one of which looks like a boot release and the other a global locking button. Mine doesn't have this.

    Was there a bit of a cross over during the facelift period? Not losing sleep over it - just interested that's all.

    Mine is a Mar 06 1.9 SRi, CDTi (150) and it is more like yours.

    I have only window switch on the passenger side and the round gear knob.

    Not checked the rev counter bit though...yet. Do have a CD70 with sat nav as well.

    It sounds like your mates car is a pre facelift as all the things you listed were standard on the pre but dropped on the facelift.

    Hi, I used to have a '54 vectra sri 2.2direct and I changed it in Oct 2007 for a '06 vectra sri 1.9 cdti(150). For being the same model, but for the facelift I lost my auto dim/dip mirror, auto wipers, st/steel sill plates, boot release on drivers door, gas struts for lifting bonnet,door and boot warning on graphic panel below rev counter, the central digital display changed from the nice neat display to the one with the chunky dot matrix. Even after all that I still like my car.

    I'm hoping on the Insignia that they put the "toys" back on again like they did when the Vectra-C first came out

    At yesterdays meet at MPG I was told that my 56 plate sri cdti had non sri door and dashboard trims. I was told that they sould be chrome but mine are like a silver wood effect and after looking at the other cars at the meet mine was the only one with this trim.
    Today I had to go to my local dealers and while I was there I checked a 06 plate and that had the same trim as mine, so I think that this trim change happend on 06 plates onwards
