    Ive narrowed it down to 3 cars now.

    The SXI's now look just like the Sri's , everything is identical bar the computer and the alloys. Theres no other difference in spec, internal or external

    I think it would have to be the Saturn Blue (imagine the depth of shine you could get!) SXI... its newer - more warranty, less miles... wouldn't go for the Silver one cos you already have one and not the Yellow one cos its too far away, has alot of miles on the clock and I'm not a fan of the colour.

    But at the end of the day mate its your decision.... you have to drive & pay for it not us!!

    What engines are in the SXi's mate?

    Will you be putting your 18's on and Irmscher / Opel stuff?

    sxi's are 1.9 150's. I'll be putting my irmscher kit on all, and either new alloys or my 18;s on too

    Are you sure about the specs, does the SXi have the same suspension, chrome kick plates, dark lights, dimming mirror, heated mirrors etc, these are all things which you would miss coming from an SRi ? I did notice the specs on the SXi had increased while every other in the range has been stripped, doesn`t make sense ? I would hold out for an SRi, so I guess my vote would be neither mate....

    If you get a CDTi, you'll be wanting to know what mpg your currently doing. An SXi doesn't have a computer and you'll be forever looking down at the screen to see. I'd wait for an SRi or even better an Elite (as Bainie said)

    Well that is good news Andy, an elite is a lot better than an SXi, so are we on for the wheels again ??
