    Default What is the difference between an SRI and Non-SRI?

    Hi there,

    Just wondering what the differences are between the SRI and Non-SRI Vectra C's. As in the visual appearance on the outside. From the rear what exactly is different?

    I'm wanting to get my car looking as SRI as possible and just wondering how and what I need to do

    chrome trims were fitted on upto 2004 model year only,2005 models lost the chrome trims,(fitted to all top models),some of this has already been mentioned
    the front bumper was different (was shared on a couple of ltd editions)
    rear bumper
    headlights were tinted
    rear lights were tinted
    radiator grille
    side skirts are a different shape and painted
    suspension was lowered but not always noticable
    wheels were unique to the sri.
    from the rear the exhausts were visible,this bumper was only fitted to sri and gsi models (and later sxi in 2004) ,excluding the estate,
    from mid 2004 the sxi and sri are virtualy the same,the main difference is the wheels,no lip spoiler and lack of trip computer

    After the SXI was revamped in 2004 the auto dimming rear view mirror, auto windscreen wipers and indirect night lighting were dropped. They were on pre-facelift SRI's from day 1.

    My mate had just bought a facelift SRi and I am shocked at how much gear they have removed that was standard on earlier SRi's - why would they do that, surely can't just be cost cutting..?

    it was cost cutting i believe. think of the cost saving if you were able to produce each unit, say, £50 cheaper - multiply that by the hundreds of thousands of cars made = huge saving to the manufacturer.
