    Default buying 2004 gsi

    hi again after getting rid of my 2.2direct a year ago i am looking at buying a gsi. my only niggly problem with the car is that it does not have any washer jets for lights and the lights don't appear to be xenons. I am not really that bothered about not having xenons (i can always fit them later) but were there any gsi's produced without them. I was thinking it may of been in an accident but it drives brilliantly and i can't see any major signs of accident damage.

    I was under the impression all gsi's had headlamp washers , I have been known to be wrong in the past though

    i have been looking at pictures on autotrader and pistonheads, all 53 plate gsis have headlight washers but only around 50% of 04/54 plate cars seem to have them. did they become an option does anyone know anywhere i can get the previous model spec sheets from vx.

    I think they were dropped on later models and put as an option instead. HTH

    Pretty sure Xenon lamps have always been standard on a GSi, possible someone got fed up with paying £150 for a bulb and had them converted back to H7's, going the other way is harder as you need a lot more than just a bulb.

    Nope they were only an option on the later ones. If Xenons were fitted as standard then it would also have headlamp washers.

    Someone might get tired of replacing the xenon bulbs (??) but they wouldn't then take out the h/light wash function as well. Unless they were completely nuts.

    On the subject of what equipment a particular car had when built, you can email Vx customer services, quote the reg, and ask for a list of all the equipment fitted at the factory, (well, worked for me anyway).
