    Same engine - different spec

    main things being (according to my 02 brochure) are the SRi has, as standard.....

    factory alarm
    CD palyer
    twin map lights
    traction control
    leccy heated door mirrors
    rear spoiler.

    If you can live without the above, go SXi

    SXi - 1.6 16v, 1.8 16v & 2.0 DTi (1.7CDti on later models)
    SRi - 1.8 16v & 2.2 16v (2.0 DTi on later models)

    not as standard no - although I'm not sure if this can be activated via tech 2 at a dealers. I'll let you do a search for the answer to that

    I knew this would happen - hence the caveat on my original post

    All Sri's have 5 stud hubs
    Not all SXi's have 4 stud hubs.

    You've opened another can of worms with that question - IIRC five studs = ABS as standard - but ABS is an option on 4 stud hubs as well. That's my take on the hub debate, other will argue differently.

    just get a five stud one and save the hassle
