    why is the sri-t generally cheaper than the gsi?

    I was looking on auto trader out of curiosity. I knew that GSIs were out of my price range for a Vauxhall, but the sri-t's (or at least a handful of them) were considerably cheaper than the gsi's & they weren't knackered either.

    From someones post the other day, there were only 500 sri-t's made, right? And many more GSI's made. Surely the sri-t would be more expensive, or at least on a par?
    Then again, is it just down to "the name" & people buying into the GSI tag?


    the price of the sri-t had me considering for a few mins. Until i decided the GSI looks much better anyway (not meaning to offend any easily offended sri-t owners )

    No 1/2 leather, less favourable kit from what i read, few interior bits are different.

    What has the GSI got over the SRI-T? Apart from recaros and different bodywork?

    They're cheaper because they're older imo.

    This was the main reason i got a GSi.

    They are also mapped high, not that itd be noticable on the road.

    Better refinements as said, recaro seats are a nice touch.

    Not sure if the SRi-T Has a solar reflective windscreen like the gsi?
