    Sri vs Sxi Trim?

    I have an Astra Sri 3 door and I have the black and red trim in my car. My car is a V reg model. I have the option of having an Sxi trim from a 52 plate car that has just a black trim in it. What trim would be best for my Sri? Thanks

    I was also thinking the all black Sxi trim looks a bit like the turbo trim, am I right? It's also alot newer but I want to know if it's better than my current Sri trim? Thank

    you will find the later car probably doesnt have the pull-out squab section - a nice feature in my opinion
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    Bare one thing in mind when you do this, your car is still quite new and if you come to sell it, any potential buyer who knows Vauxhall's will wonder why it has had a new and wrong interior fitted.

    I have the Red/Black check interior on my SXi with the extra leg support and I think it's a really nice trim. Not too plain whilst not too girly and poncy and the seats also seem to have some side support that stops you sliding off the seats (Dunno if this is a standard feature on all G's)

    It's all down to personal preferance at the end of the day mate but is the trim that bad? I'd leave it alone personally unless you were planning to swap it for full leather of course

    I have had another look at this trim tonight and it's in very good condition and it does have the parts on the bottom of the seats that pull out. I think I will swap them.
