    Maybe buying a SRI

    I've just been on the phone to a dealer enquiring about a 2006 (06 plate) 1.8SRI which has 13k and is up at £8995

    I really wanted 1 with the exterior kit but they were all £1500 more and the p/x prices i was getting back were £600 less so they'd cost me an extra £2100

    With the exterior pack i take it it's just the front, rear and sideskirts (not including alloys as i'll change them later anyway) - is the upper rear spoiler the same as the SRI standard 1?
    Where is the cheapest place to buy the spoiler kit either painted+fitted or unpainted (west/south yorkshire)?
    Is it bonded on or are they clamps? is it easy to fit myself is what i'm wanting to know really

    I'm not expecting a fast car (trading in my 325Ti - 192bhp) but are the SRIs easy to tune?
    Hope the test drive goes ok on saturday then with luck i'll have it this time next week

    had a Fabia VRS a year ago (chipped to 186bhp) which was great but as i only drive 100 miles a week i don't need a diesel - the 325 is getting 22mpg so i do want to improve on that though

    The turbos look good on paper but the prices are higher for same mileage/ age cars and then they don't have the kit on as standard which is a must have

    i'm going for a 5door as it's more practical and i'm not too keep on the rear 1/4 on the 3 door

    you can buy the full XP kit for around £500, I am sure steve at LMF will do you a good deal on it. Then of course you have tospray and fit, which shouldnt be too much money
