    Default Best of both worlds

    The car I'm referring to will be an 06 vectra cdti 150

    As i mentioned in a previous thread i still can't decide whether to get an elite or sri so decided to put together a comparison between the 2 so as to end up with the advantages of both. One thing i might not mind losing could be the sri seats as i'm going to be doing around 170 miles a day and will be getting in and out of the car around 20 times a day. Please feel free to add any parts i've missed (i'm sure there's many) which i'd need to change. Copying and pasting my original list with the additions would make things easier for me.

    Also thought i'd mention that even if i bought an sri i might still upgrade the suspension and add a few exterior vxr parts.

    Below is a list of what i'd need to change, so under the elite heading i've listed the parts i'd lose from not buying the sri and vice versa...

    Elite
    Interior:
    Sports seats (would prefer to keep leather elite seats)
    Half leather steering wheel

    Exterior:
    18” wheels (would replace on sri with vxr 19”)
    Skirts (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Rear bumper (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Front bumper (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Rear boot lip spoiler (would replace on sri with vxr part)

    Handling / performance:
    Sri lower / stiffer suspension (would replace on sri with Bilstein B4 Shocks/Eibach Pro Springs)




    Sri

    Interior:
    Sunglasses holder
    Auto dimming mirror
    Illuminated sun visors
    Indirect night lighting
    Rear interior lights
    Rear lighter socket
    Heated seats – difficult mod?
    Electric rear windows – difficult mod?
    Auto wipers - – difficult mod?
    Auto lights – difficult mod?


    Exterior:
    Electric and heated door mirrors


    Handling / performance:
    None

    Forgot lights! Oh and does anyone have any good comparison pics of exterior. Don't mind adding boot spoiler and front lip but replacing bumpers and skirts with sri items would be a big expensive job.

    Elite
    Interior:

    Sports seats (would prefer to keep leather elite seats)
    Half leather steering wheel

    Exterior:
    18” wheels (would replace on sri with vxr 19”)
    Skirts (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Rear bumper (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Front bumper (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Rear boot lip spoiler (would replace on sri with vxr part)
    Rear tinted lights
    Front blacked out headlights

    Handling / performance:
    Sri lower / stiffer suspension (would replace on sri with Bilstein B4 Shocks/Eibach Pro Springs)




    Sri

    Interior:
    Sunglasses holder
    Auto dimming mirror

    Not really, the front bumper is the same and you can pick up a rear one cheap as chips on ebay.

    I've added in red above the bits you should get as std on an 06 sri, I've certainly got them on my 07 plate which is std to the best of my knowledge.

    And dare I say it, theres a lot less to go wrong as the years roll by on an sri
