    if it was requested on original order its a modification. I thought only some of the astras came with the XP kit as standard and that was specified on the V5?

    Some insurance companies do not list the 'sri xp' as a standard model edition, so yes to them it is a modification, however more and more insurers are adding sri xp's as standard model editions

    The Irmscher kit on the MK4's are also classed as a modification too unless it was fitted from the factory.

    I bought mine 7 months old and it only came with the 18s but before a bought the car the dealer fitted the rest of the exterior pack for free! I told Adrian Flux that it had the exerior pack fitted by the dealers and all was fine. Mine however will not show on the v5.
