    Default Door Kerblights

    Just wanted to check, are these another original Vectra C feature that vauxhall have since dropped, or made optional extras for extra cost.

    a 53 plate 1.8 club saloon (i.e. base spec,) pulled up in my street tonight, doors opened, these red lights, which I soon realised were kerblights, before feeling down that my higher trim level and newer car seems to be missing these yet a base spec has them, dont even think I've seen an 04 plate SRI with them, so am thinking they were dropped to extra cost options on the MY04 onwards.

    any gen?

    Hendry - yes m8 this was another one of VX's penny pinching moves to save a bit of cash and downgrade the cars spec.

    My 03 sri doesn't have them. The SRi has been raped over the last couple of years, so much so that i would have to think carefully about having a new one. It would feel like an older car compared wtih the spec on mine. The worst offender for me was the GSI when it lost xenon headlamps as standard in 2005. The xenons were then made a £850 option but the price of the car wasn't reduced by £850 it remained the same. If i stuck with Vectra's come trade in time it would have to be the elite.

    Vauxhall always start models off really well-equipped, then drop loads of spec off them! It's so annoying!

    I was very much looking forward to rain sensitive wipers and an autodimming rear view mirror, neither of which appeared on mine when I got it!

    Just another quick point - was the chrome trim on the windowline another victim of the Vectra spec-cull? I've seen SRis with it, but mine doesn't have it. In all honesty I prefer it without though...

    I know how you feel mate I've got a 2.0T EDT100, 04 plate but do not have half the things all you guys are on about. There is a guy in the work who has just bought a new model 1.8 SRI 55 plate, and its speced out in all most everything.
    But as some as you say VXH will never change thier ways. Anything for a fast buck.
