    Default Facelift Vectra SRi v Elite

    Hope Iím not going to stir up a hornetís nest, so Iím not going to ask whatís the best out of the Vectra (facelift) Sri or Elite.

    What Iím interested in finding out is Iím looking at the 150bhp version of the 1.9 diesel. What is the difference between the Sri and the Elite? Such as ride, do they have different suspension and also the trim?

    How much would I need to buy a facelift Vectra Sri or Elite?

    IMO the SRI drives/handles better because of the lowered/stiffened suspension, Sports seats and faster steering rack. I had an 'Active' 1.8 previously with standard suspension, as on the Elite, and it was nowhere near as sharp to drive.

    If you want REAL leather seats, get the Elite.

    Of course you can modify either to get it to handle as you want or to have the comfort you want or the toys you want.

    IMO If you are not really bothered about serious modifications, like me, get the SRI.
