    It's a 1.716v DTi or CDTi

    It's a super enconomy oil burner and has things like special (low rolling resistance) tyres, an aerodyamic under tray, lowered suspension and revised gear ratios and the small rear spoiler - all done in the name of efficiency and economy.

    Always wondered if you can fit that undertray to normal models? Give you 5mph on your top speed! :P

    Apparently the reviews I've heard is that its preferable to the standard 1.7 version - the lowered suspension compensates for the thinner tyres well - Lotus spent much time on the suspension of these Eco4's
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    I've seen a few of the Eco4 Astras about, one went past me like I was going backwards on the motorway. Only knew it was an Eco4 when I caught it up in traffic later on. The exhaust on the Eco4 is different too - the back box is a small square thing, almost like the Meriva exhaust, not the usual big thing you get on a normal Astra.

    Gearing is very tall in the ECO4, meaning not so fast acceleration but a pretty good top speed My dads mate used to have one.. im pretty sure it was at 3,000 revs doin around 90mph :!:

    Sounds like my old 2.2d multivalve Laguna. 100mph at 3500. Top speed down a VERY big hill was 135 at top end of the red line.
