    Default I'm back with a White SRi Xp kitted Estate!

    I registered a while back when looking into getting a SRi XP Estate in White as my company car, but then I got side tracked by a new Mondeo Titanium X in white with sports pack.

    Placed an order for the Mondeo 1st week in Jan as the MY08 build of the SRi XP11 didn't do white (we have to have white cars!), and guess what after 3 months of waiting, and expecting to picke the car up on the 31st March, the lease company phones me up and says the delaer hasn't even placed an order on the car yet, and due to demand it will be at least 16-20 weeks!

    So I bit the bullet and swopped back to a Vectra, after I realised you can get an SRI in white with XP kit and snowflakes as option packs.

    So in hopefully a quoted 6-7 weeks I should get it!

    Full spec is,

    SRI 1.9CDTI Nav - Glacier White
    XP Kit
    19" Snowflakes
    AFL lights
    IDC
    ESP
    Front and Rear Sensors
    Roof Rails
    Blue tooth

    Few questions though,

    1. Is 6-7 weeks realistic? I'm assuming nt that many new Vectras get sold now due to the age of the design and new model not far off, but I have ticked all the option boxes?

    2. When using the CD70 Nav, I assume you can't play CD's, but can you use the radio and listen to a plugged in MP3 player?

    3. Does Bluetooth cut the radio out when activated, and is it any good?

    4. Can I swop just the chrome V grill for a pre-sprayed body colour one, or do I have to take the whole grill section out? and can you do it wihout removing bumper?

    5. Chrome fog light rings, where do I get them, and as above just the rings or grill too?

    Cheers in advance

    Dave

    CD70 has seperate holes for sat nav disc and audio, so using both is easy...

    CD70 works while you've got a CD in and playing. It has two slots, one for the CD-rom and one for Aerosmith!

    Delivery time, Depends, if it's a special order and looking at your option list, it could be a factory build, I'd give it up to 12 weeks to be sure.

    Chrome grille can be swapped for a body colour one, not hard, but the whole bumper will need to come off to get it on

    Chrome fog light rings, depends if you have the XP pack 1 or two, if it's got the normal SRi bumper, then Signum chrome surrounds go straight in, but again, it's bumper off time. XP2 has a VXR bumper and I honestly can't remember if they use different fog surrounds - one for Big Pete or Spoons.

    Bluetooth, Not had any experience of it, I think Spoons again, might be able to help you there.

    Vehicle : Audi Q7

    Trim : S-Line Plus 245

    Engine : 3.0 TDV6

    Year : 2013

    Mileage : 3023

    Default

    XPII have seperate chrome ring inserts, they are £6.67 each (LMF prices) pt no: 93186621 VXR / XPII CHROME FOG LIGHT INSERTS (2)

    Bluetooth does cut the radio out, It is very good but check that your phone works fully with it.. I have an N95 and to make a call i have pick up the phone and go thru the contacts to find the person i want to call and then press call.. If your phone works fully with the bluetooth (which most phones do except the newer N series phones) then it is a very good hands free kit with contacts available thru the steering wheel controls or voice activated..

    I ordered my car at the end of may last year and i collected on the 1st sept.. they told me that it would be 8 to 10 weeks but it was more.. depends what options you've added..

    Edit: Looking at your options it pretty much the same as mine except for the AFL, i tried to add AFL but i was told it was too late.. As i said ordered in may 07 and ready for collection on 1st sept 07..

    Hi BP, how did you get on having your new XPii bumper sprayed ie:
    did the colour match the rest of the wing when you got it back
    from the body shop ? i ask this because some members were getting
    different shades after bumper re sprays ! im thinking of the XPii bumper
    myself !
    cheers

    It won't have the XP2 bumper as it is an SRi with VXR Style pack one, so it will have the normal bumper with VXR style line 1 spoiler.

    So a set of Signum fog surrounds will be required, very cheap they are and easy to fit.

    I have 3 different phones twinned with my factory blue tooth and they are all fine, not all will syncronise the phone book with the car.

    If they do sync, you can leave you phone out of site and use the stereo or steering wheel to view all your contacts on the cars screen.

    An excellent system!
