    Alarm, ABS, Anti Theft Sys? (Astra G)

    Hi.

    Still on my quest for my first car (and Astra) and got a few more questions I'd like answers to please.

    I'm thinking of getting the 1.6i SXi at the mo due to buy price/insurance/run cost compromise but I've noticed it doesn't have ABS, nor an alarm or anti theft system.

    On the 1.8i SXi however, it has ABS, but doesn't mention alarm or anti theft.

    The 1.8i SRi though has ABS and anti theft sys but again no alarm.

    Am I missing something here, neither of the models have alarms?

    Comparing the two 1.8i's then, what's the difference between the SXi and SRi? And how does the 1.8i SXi differ from the 1.6i SXi?

    And if I was to get the 1.6i SXi, could I get ABS, and a alarm/anti theft sys installed?

    I've asked alot I know but would appreciate any help. Cheers.

    the 1.6 sxi does have an anti theft system, an immobiliser, and a steering lock, but no alarm or abs as standard

    I'm sure the 1.8 SRI had an alarm.
    I had a 1.6 SXI and it was a good car it doesn't have ABS which isn't that good it could do with ABS. have u checked insurance? as i had it as my second car after i'd been driving for about 3 years and insurance started at £1800 that was when i was 21!!!

    No ABS on my SXi 1.6 16v and to be honest, so far, I've not really needed it - just learn how to brake properly

    OK, cheeky response! My guess is that retro-fitting ABS is expensive but I may be wrong!

    Yes from 2001 the 1.8 16v Sri had an Alarm fitted as standard to the vehicle Oh and the Sxi is a optional fit from the dealer/factory.
