    Newbie - Help Please

    Forgive my ignorance, but I am new to the UK and to the Astra.

    I bought a 1.6 1996 Hatchback Astra and I am clueless as to its specifications.

    Can someone help me out with a site listing the specs for this car?

    Thanks!

    all these detials should be on your V5 document. if not contact the DVLA they should be able to tell you what year/make/model/when it was registered etc... if you have lost the details.

    what spec's were you after? engine performace? or other technical details?

    if it's an LS, it's most likely you have the 1.6i 8v engine probably Spi which is around 70-75bhp i belive. i sure somebody else on here can give you better information

    Yikes, only 75 bhp? It feels a bit better than that, but I will see what I can find on the docs that came with the car...
