    Which Astra G SRi?

    Im on the look out for a nice Astra G SRi, now ive looked through the site, and im still unsure whether its worth getting a 2ltr or a 1.8

    Ive just sold my Cavalier SRi (Redtop XE) so dont really wanna go down a lot in performance thats why I was thinking of the 2ltr.

    I have £4000 to spend and atm there not much about but I think thats just becuase of Christmas.

    Are the 1.8s any good? And are the 2ltrs any better?

    Cheers in advance

    Chris

    Hello mate. The 1.8 is a decent car and the 2.0 is also not too bad, but the 1.8 is not far behind the 2.0. The insurance on the 1.8 is alot better than the 2.0 . I would go for the 1.8 model

    as there aint much in it i would just go for the best deal you can get on either, lots of sh1tters around so a good condition/mileage/price of either would be good.

    I forgot to say I have a Sport model 1.8 and it's cheaper than the Sri 1.8 for some reason. I think it's the Sri that makes it more..

    if u get one of the year 2000 onwards 1.8 models they have 123hp only 13 behind the 2litre ones, also u probably wont b able 2 find a 2 litre model newer than 2000.

    Top end performance is better on the 2.0 litre but the 1.8 is cheaper in the long run, i have a 1.8 & for a 1.8 you can t complain Golf mk2 GTI performance basically (but better).

    yup, you won't get a 2.0 after 2000.

    I believe the 1.8 and 2.2 were launched when the 2.0 production was stopped.
