    Well its not big and not clever, but sometimes you cant resist.

    Had a good 4-5 mile race with a Zetec S and nudged past at high speeds, overtook bigger stuff but I dont think they were giving it all.

    I know it's not big,

    But when they are looking thinking they are the kings of the road, you have to show them.

    Very rarely do this as it is dangerous, but as you say, sometimes you have to.
    In my mk2 1.6 8v, I've overtaken a Fiesta XR2i which was done up unbelievably boy-racerish. The driver looked non-too-happy to see a pretty much standard Astra overtake him! Also out-paced a BMW 318i - another unhappy driver.
    Other than that, I just floor it to about 80mph on the dual c'way and then cruise at 80. Police don't mind and safe.

    not much your going to beat other than those which are probably obvious.

    dont say it struggles against a 1.4 16v golf though

    i think the 1.6 16v is just a nice run around engine, not a bad handler on the motorways i suppose but the bmw's think you shouldn't be in there lane and will go up ur ass at 95mph ish :x
    gsi front, sri turbo rear, bk299's, 2x15" diamond m3's and a dls a6 I need more bass ... 1200 rms and counting

    Actually, I used to suffer a similar problem. Until I discovered that my Astra comfortably cruises at 100 mph and still does 40mpg!

    BTW, I only do those speeds when the m'way is very quiet . . .
