    advice on buying a 2002 astra sri turbo

    i am looking into px'ing my corsa c 2004 for a 2002 astra sri-t in red which i understand is rare. it is in good condition except for some scuffs on arch and bumper.

    what else should i be made aware of?

    and what are the differences between sri-t and gsi as ideally i would like to make it into a gsi, bumpers and such


    just need advice really


    thanks for the help i would really appreciate it.

    The SRiT was basically a test run for the GSi from what I understand and only 500 were made.

    It has a different bodykit, a cloth interior and a slightly different map which can easily be changed to the GSi map by your local friendly vxl dealer if you have one.

    Also, the GSi was available in Arden as well as red, black and silver. The SRiT was only available in the latter 3.

    And snowflakes look shite on a sri turbo.

    maybe its because of the prodrive kit.
