    Default Will the SRi ever be 'special' again?

    Growing up as a kid I seem to remember the SRi meant something. But nowadays it's really just a reference to something that no longer turns heads. It would be nice if the SRi could be used to bridge the gap between the ordinary (regular vecs) and the extraordinary (VXR).

    It really meant something to the insurance industry as well. Sky high premiums were the death of the early hot hatches.

    surely the gsi bridges the gap? I think the sri badge used to mean performance upgrades where as now it seems to be more trim biased.

    Sri trim is practically the same as the LS not much going on there.

    I'd swap my LS trim and alloys with an SRI anyday.

    Sorry, I should have said 'internal trim.' I guess it's all about external looks rather than performance.
