    07 model SXI

    Must say I do like it, the rims are actually pretty nice, and the new front bumper really tidies up the front.

    They have finally done away with those awful standard 16s then? About time.

    I never liked the SXi 16's fitted on the Astra H, even the later spec split 5-spokes, but if I had one they would have been changed to others anyway

    I think the revised versions are worse than the first versions IMO


    Version 1



    Version 2

    Oh dear, they have managed to put worse wheels on. 17s should be standard on the sport hatch - 16s just look silly.

    The are practically idenitical to base model 3 series wheels also..

    Just picked up a 57 plate 5 door sxi

    Tis nice enough and the front bumper is much better than the previous late versions of the original bumper, although I still prefer the early early front bumper so long as fog brows and mouldings are painted.

    the new 16" are much better than the old, but still look a little lost under the arches
