    Default Who has made the change?

    I have a 2.2i sri direct 2005 pre-facelift, so who made the change to a facelift or a 9-3 and what do they think of it?

    I have.

    i went from a GSI 3.2 black beastie to 2.8 VXR Blue meanie.

    The GSI had more electrical toys inside (and I do miss them at times)
    but the VXR is night and day when compared with performance and handling and I never thought I'd say this but I prefer the facelifts looks.

    Went from Pre-facelift Elegance to Facelift Elite , Kept noticing cost cuttings such as No remote boot opening , Rear side pockets in boot have no inner box, And Rear passengers notice a lot more Road noise . appears to be less sound proofing. In some respects the Pre facelift Elegance felt more "Solid" IMO

    Noticably sharper on the SRi, the facelift I have now is a much nicer drive than my old pre-facelift. Can't comment on the non sport models though

    I test drove a facelift and it felt better to drive perhaps because it was newer. I couldn't test it too much as the sales man was next to me.
