    Hi, newbie here! Take a look...

    Hi there,

    I currently have a Punto GT and was thinking about a new car in the new year. Was thinking about going down the Impreza route (cheap, big power) but then got thinking about an Astra Coupe Turbo. I used to have a Corsa Sport 1.4 16v which was great and I love Vaux so thats why I would like another one. Nice looking cars,

    I posted my thoughts on another Forum and got a few good responses, but I thought you might be interested in a few opinions that have come across. Apologies for any incorrect facts or figures in my post:-

    What do you guys think?

    Cheers!

    Max

    Welcome to the site mate

    ACT are stonking motors and some of the best ones i have seen are here on AS. I had a MK4 SRi and had no idea what to do with it, but with the help from the guys here, I turned it into a great looking motor

    Im sure the members here with ACT will give you more details

    Impreza's are a good car, but like you said cost a fortune to run and insure. With the right tuning, Im pretty sure the ACT will be just as good or even better than a Impreza.

    These comments cracked me up:

Bet theres many kilos of cocaine been sold out of an Astra
    Will post something when i stop laughing!

    I do like this idea though:
