    Astra H Sri Or Elite ?

    Are there any advantages to having the sri over an elite? i.e, Is the suspension set up the same or does the sri have a firmer/sportier set up? Also is the elite available with the xp kit? As i want the elite spec but with the xp kit & sri wheels

    iirc, the sri has firmer suspension, bucket seats, alloys, silver console trim etc, and i dont think the elite has any of that.

    i think i need to grab an xp kit aswell.

    the XP is only avaivlibe on the SRI

    the elite comes with half leather i think, different wheels.

    i personaly would go for the SRI.

    You could alternatively buy the XP kit and fit it afterwards, and fit lowering springs.

    That way you would have the ride height/handling you wanted and the looks but the spec of the elite as well

    where is the best place to grab an xp kit btw?

    it'd be stupidly expensive from a dealer, right?

    I got my xp kit from local main vxhl dealer £680 without the v.a.t added on to the kit ' this was the best vxhl parts guy would do. So i saved around £119 .And i phoned around at least 3 other vxhl dealers who all wanted the v.a.t paying on top of the kit price.

    Wrong. XP kit is available on the SXi and Design Sporthatch too.

    Elite is only available in 5-door, and has full leather.

    Basically i want the elite mainly as its got full leather full electrics etc which the sri doesnt have although the sri is available with leather as an option but are hard to come by with leather in & i think it would be easier to retro fit the best parts of the sri onto an elite than the best parts of the elite onto the sri imo plus the elite is the top of the range regards to spec (other than the vxr obviously)
