    confused Help needed

    Hello guys
    I've currently got £2,500 sat in the bank towards a new car. After having a Vectra C (estate) until last autumn, I've decided I want another one, although I think I will go for a hatchback this time.
    My question is; What is the highest spec pre-facelift? Is it an Elite? Can you get an Elite with the 1.9CDTI (150) engine? I'm looking really at around an 04' 54 reg. i've seen a few Elites in Autotrader, but they are all DTi's, and after my estate which was one, I don't want another one as it was a bit sluggish, un-tunerble and as it was only 'LS' spec, a bit mean on the toys!!!.
    Obviously, the £2,500 I've currently got in the bank, I know I could go out and get an 02 - 53 easily, but like I say, I want a later model with the better engine, so I know I'll have to wait a few more months until I build up the money for one.The plan is once I've got the prefered car (04' Elite hatchback 1.9CDTI - if there is one in existance??? ) I will then change the front bumper to give it the appearance of the SRi.

    Any help on whether I can get this car etc would be great.
    Cheers guys!

    @ Dunc: Ha,ha.....I've been looking at them when I'm on the road, but it's just the back end? Does this make me a bad person??? Ha ha, although I do like the space in them.
    @ Carteg: Yes mate, I definately want the 150. Drove a mate's 07 SRi the other day, and WOW......
