Hey guys and girls lovely forum you have here,

Just wondered if you could help me...

Looking at buying a red (not sure which paint) Astra SRi.

It looks to have the Rover (Vauxhall/Fiat i guess to) syndrome where the paint has begun to fade. See pic below:


Is there anyway of stopping this from happening as i really like the car and just nervous about the colour.

Also a totally unrelated question...what is the difference between the SRi and SXi, as from what i can see performance and trim are identical apart from the different alloy wheels.

Happy Days!
