    My Hire Car

    Spoke to the hire comapny on wednesday, they said we re sort you a car for friday, i said what car they said a mondeo or vectra.
    Me thinking hmmm bit big really, so suggested that an astra would be good car for my hire, the bloke then said yeah or it will be a rover 25, me thinking i would rather have either of the above.

    So car turns up its an astra club (5 door) 1.6 badge i thought hmm could be the 8 valve which is bad news got in it about half hour ago then changed my mind maybe it is a 16v, popped the bonnet & its an 8v.

    I must say though its not to bad seems to go alright, ive heard the 1.4 16v is faster. But this is ok for a week jus want my SRI back now.

    you have to keep a 16v engine reving higher to get the best out of it. Once its making best power will always beat an 8v

    hey less 8v slagging people

    8v has more torque than the 16v, so will pull harder lower down in the revs and in the lower gears, which is nice around town.

    but it's no sports car, but then hardly any astras are
