    What car next???

    New to the site here....

    Thinking of changing the car soon mainly due to my bro getting a 220SDI rover with a tuning box (135bhp) and making my car look really slow...
    I have a 99 1.6 16v sxi with decat pipe and k&n induction kit.

    I am just not sure what to do i have a couple of choices:
    1.8 16v sxi (125 bhp version)
    2.0 DTI with tuning box
    or tuning my current car just wondering if it is worth it there is now 70k on the clock, but i was reading one of the topics, were someone said it is easy to tune the 1.6's to 160bhp.

    Any suggestions???

    Get a Dti and a tuning box mate

    Then add a GSi bodykit, wheels and lower it.

    Then laugh at your bro for getting a nasty car

    just tune your car mate

    the 1.6 is easily tunned apparently and you would get more bhp than him easy

    but what you will need to remember is he will have tons more toarque than you because its an oil burner

    Thanks for the response. I think i will go for the DTI with the tuning box but just not to sure if it will be quick enough to beat his 200 was looking on the parkers website and it says the 220 will do 60 in 9.8 seconds where the astra dti does it in 10.6. Will just have to put the 2.2DTI from the vectra in it! . Wat sorta money would it be to tune my 1.6 would be nice having 160bhp from a 1.6..

    I was talking to someone that said they knew of a 2.2 in a coupe over here so I guess it's do-able

    it would be a rocket. In the vectra it does the following
    Top 129mph
    0-60 9.5
    Thats the speed of a pd 130 golf and its down 6bhp standard!!!
    Think wat it would do in the astra then with the tuning box on top of that it would prob have a good stab at the 150bhp pd golf with a tuning box.
