    Default Can anyone list me the differences in SRI pre and post facelift please

    The new shape (facelift) has grown on me so much that I am thinking of selling mine to buy one.

    What I would like to know is the exact differences - apart from external cosmetic (thinking specifically about 1.9 150 CDTi)

    Thanks very much

    Its certainly got a better suspension set up. I driven my mates facelift 1.9 150 CDTi yesterday and was impressed by the handling - much better than mine (although my SXi is only on 16's).
    Inside theres different style controls on the steering wheel, nice silver bits on the air vents. Also the lights in the dash were a bit different. I know this because while I was driving it the spanner light came on!!! It appeared in a different place to my car and was a smaller light. Also the car wouldnt do above 3K revs while this was on . Anyway, turned the engine off/on and was ok again .

    Well I used to have a pre-facelift vectra Saloon (2.2 petrol Sxi on an '03' plate)

    then I purchased a facelift SRi NAV 1.9CDTi Hatchback - Things I noticed

    FORS

    - Nice shape
    - interior is better
    - Diesel power is much much quicker
    - Better economy
    - Good boot storage boxes
    - Darker window tinted glass
    - Satellite Navigation built in
    - Would definately not go back to the old shape....
    - New material used for centre arm rest and door panels doesnt 'bobble' like the old one

    AGAINST

    - No auto-dipping mirror
    - No Rain sensitive Wipers
    - No boot release button
    - No bonnet gas strut (replaced with metal bar to hold the bonnet up)
    - No place for my Warning Triangle
    - CANBUS wiring caused problem fitting bluetooth phone kit
    - Suspension was noisier than previous Sxi (probably due to lower profile tyres and sports suspension)
    - Multifunction steering wheel uses 'flick rollers' which I keep catching when turning the wheel (its annoying). Actually prefer the old button type
    - Also prefered the old Sxi Gear knob, much better than the new round bulky thing..
