    Default Gsi spec

    I am currently on the look out for possibly a Gsi, hopefully black,to replace my Sri 140 B. Seem to be reading that the spec varies on the year.Question is what is the best year spec to look out for ?.Was originally going to buy a new facelift model but i'm afraid that new front has not grown on me yet and think the earlier Gsi's especially some of the members cars photo's i,ve seen on here look more what i had in mind.But hearing stories that some of the later Gsi's were lower spec than earlier models.Was looking out for a 53 or 54 plate would those year spec be quite decent.

    You can`t get a facelift GSi so thats decision made *lol*, the earlier cars are a bit more specced than the later ones but I think the GSi didn`t suffer as much as the rest ...

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : GSI

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 2003

    Default

    You'll find that an 04 reg will generally not have xenons as they were removed from standard spec. I managed to get a late 53 Reg (registered in 04) because i particularly wanted xenons!

    Also earlier models had an air quality sensor for the climate control, which mine doesn't have (must have been stripped after 03's)

    Oh forgot to mention 04 onwards, benefited from larger front brake discs (i think) 314mm as oppose to 302mm pre '04

    Mines an 04.. quite well specced as well, compared to an sri..

    split climate control, 1/2 leather, auto sensing wipers etc..

    generally speaking the gsi did miss the spec sweep of other models..

    Mates 54 got full leather, split climate control, colour sat nav, xenons and a lovely deep rumble as he pulls away, i'm so jealous! Still think my sri rims are better than gsi ones though.
