    Default Got a '53 plate 2.0T SRi - not sure about the lights though...

    Hello,

    Having always owned astras, novas and corsas, I recently (two weeks ago) decided to buy a silver 2.0T SRI with 54k on the clock.

    Compared to the other cars I have owned this one seems much better screwed together and is pretty quick. Shame about getting 25 mpg average....

    Having picked it up, I noticed a knocking sound once warm (thankfully turned out to be the radiator mountings) and the head lights had condensation on the inside the covers.

    The dealer has 'sorted' both issues, but the replacement head lights are clear rather than (what I thought were standard SRI...) smoked ones. The dealer swears blind that the SRi's came with either smoked or clear and my car should have the clear ones. To me, it just looks wrong. Any thoughts?

    afaik the SRI's headlight's only came in the smoked option so not sure how he can tell your car came with out them ! if you had smoked one's before they should of changed like for like return to dealership and tell them they need to swap them over or you will be contacting vauxhall head office

    Cheers, exactly what I thought - it wasn't a main dealer, wish it was. To be fair, they weren't obliged to sort it out as i should have noticed when I picked the car up I guess... Im not going to kick up too much of a fuss.

    The main thing is they appear to have sorted out the knocking - apparently an uprated mount from vauxhall was needed - a known problem?

    However, that said, I am now officially on the look out for the correct lights and also an irmscher style grille. Any for sale ..? time to look in the items for sale forum me thinks...

    ask the dealer for your old ones back, and try the silica gel pack trick to dry them out...

    there about £70+ a set on flea bay...
