    Help on Astra Sxi ???

    I have found a nice car to trade in my Corsa for but need a few questions answered...

    I have found a Astra 1.8 sxi , 52 reg , 2003, star silver..

    Now when you look at parkers guide review it says on this model 9.5 secs 0-60 and 115 bhp but in the Vauxhall leaflet it says 8.5 secs and 125 bhp.

    What power is the car really im about to buy ????

    the one you are looking at is the new series 1.8 16v engine and does have the 125bhp stated and does the 0-60 in 8.5

    the other stats are for the older 1.8 mate

    have a look at the rolling road thread in chit chat by griff and that will show you what mods to do and what sort of gains to expect

    Not sure but My mate has an 02 plate 1.8 sxi and its bleeding quick for a 1.8, he regulaly gives my 2.2 coupe a run for its money, hes close but no cigar! lol. I think the 1.8 is a fantastic engine, cheeper insurance etc, you cant go wrong.

    The 125bhp 1.8 16v appeared in roughly 2000 when the SXi was released

    Whichever one you get, it's a bloddy fast car for what it is!

    I've beaten a lot of 2L cars, 1.8T Passat etc and even a Lexus IS200 which I used to think was a very fast car for a 2L.

    Don't go off paper... you'll love the car and it'll be as fast as you could want
