    How hard do you drive your astra?

    Ok, so i'm not the easiest person on my car, i do flog it a bit, but always let it warm up and down a little, etc (2.2L manual) and looking for some validation that the astra is a good car, complete the poll and then post if you like any parts/problems you've had (if any) that relate to driving the car "hard" Thanks! (Mostly for MK4/G models )

    P.S. Talking about models with "average" mileage, obviously older high milage will have more wear Talking about wear, like brakes, wearing out in 20k miles, etc, belts, wierd bits like clutch, etc (turbo's incl)
    Opel/Vauxhall/Holden Astra SRi 2.2L

    its a bl**dy terrible road!! one of the worst in scotland imo, and now there is a huge 40mph stretch through it, watch out for an unmarked silver 5series bmw in that strech of road, sneaky bugger!
