    Default When did the front bumper change?

    Is the bumper on an 05 SXi the same as the SRi bumper?

    I keep seeing Veccy C's with a different bumper to the SXi that i am getting...

    Yep, the bumpers (front rear and side skirts) were changed on the SXi around the launch of the 04 plate (and maybe a little sooner). The SXi also got the SRi/GSi sports suspension although only still sits on 16"s.
    Before this the SXi had standard suspension and fog lamps like the Elegance - small square ones.

    My SXi is virtually identical to the SRi except the wheels, rain sensitive wipers and the fuel computer.

    Also the 2.2 Direct engine was put in the hatchbacks from this same time (although it was already being used in the Signum and Vectra Estate)

    To be honest, i think i like the 16's on the SXi better than the 17's on the SRi

    Smart wheels on the VXR though , it rocks
