    Default B v C mini review

    Just got my 1.8 sri after owning a 2.2 sri vectra B for a couple of years. I must say the build quality is far superior to the 'b'.

    mini review end

    Crikey that was a mini review! Got to agree though mate the C is a big improvement over the B, everything seems bolted together better and has a much solider feel on the road. Glad your happy with your new purchase.

    I have gone back to a B from a C, my reasons being cost and the way the Vec-C seems so much more fault prone. Love the C but for some reason I prefer the B yet.....maybe that will change if and when I buy another C?

    For me though, the C has some sheer class compared to the B, its presence and size just gives it a robusty feel.

    I do agree though that the Vec-B does feel a little plasticcy and the seat comforts aint the greatest!


    Bye bye Vec B

    The interior on the C's is mostly if not all plastic. Not that i'm complaining about it, i don't really mind. As long as it drives well, which it does

    I had my last car a Sri 'B' for six years & the 'C' for three months. Bearing in mind I do less miles now I have yet to get a real feel for it & knowing its response to speed manoeuvres etc. It’s getting better but only time will tell...

    I have the later one that they are sposed to have modeled on the UK roads.... it corners like its on rails but if it was not for the need of extra space in the back ( kids ) I would have kept my B tbh.
