    elite has leather as standard. just a decent road test listen for any knocks or rattles and rev the engne right round from low to high revs as dont want any lights to come on.

    Thanks for your advice. yeah i looked at at an elite, i was told the sri was the one to go for though, better handling and more sporty looking better alloys etc, ive looked at a few sri's 57reg and a couple of 08's with very low millage all of em at very good prices, i think I'm just desperate to get rid of my focus, would it be stupid of me to get an sri and then look at fitting leather seats? sorry for all the questions

    well our dorset roads are so bought the elite and lucky it had ids+. have had 2 sri's though and liked both. you can fit most things in a vectra aftermarket but they will need programing and possibly a dash loom for the leather heaters to work

    Well the roads where i live aint much better, thats why i wasnt gonna go for the vectra with the ex pack. The pot holes in the roads round here wouldnt be very forgiving with the 19" alloys and low profile tyres..
    thanks for ur advice
