    I think full leather was an optional extra wasn't it? So there will be some out there.

    Scott, you're doing just what I did!

    had my 2.2 for 3 months and started looking for a turbo coupe. Then I spotted a SRi-Turbo hatch and never looked back. Good luck with the search.

    I do know that there is 1 in Charles Warners (Vxl main dealer) in Lincoln on a 54 plate (I think) for about 11 or 12 grand - it's that electric blue colour that I can't quite remember the name of and full black leather. looks spotless too, although I didn't look that closely. I would have swapped mine but the wife just bought a Linea Rossa Turbo Convertible!

    Good decision to upgrade to the turbo model.

    Your right the leather, leather/alcantara were options over the standard cloth, but if you look hard enough there are plenty around with leather interiors.

    It took me 5 months to find the right coupe turbo for me and I haven't looked back since.

    Nice one, there's a coupe at a garage near me.. .don't think it's a turbo but I'll check tomorrow on my way past just in case.

    Also, you're local.... have you been to any meets yet? I think there's on this weekend (see South Central Forum link in my sig)
