    havent got an astra, but a Zafira GSI. Same engine, very modable, but know a few people with Astras(GSI , SRI, Coupe). very nice cars indeed.

    Mine was a dud, but I still like them. If I was to get a turbo vx again, it would probably be a Zaffy

    I'm still happy with mine, which is good for me I get very bored very quickly with most cars, lol

    The interior quality isn't great compared to german stuff, but then mine cost me about 6 grand less than the equivilent german car so you would expect that

    Overall good cars and cheap to run, servicing, petrol etc nothing scary there at all

    I had an Astra GSi which I loved and swapped it for a Zafira GSi which I loves even more. Great cars, and a lot of fun.

    Traded up from a Focus ST170 to the Astra GSI Turbo, and it was the best move I ever made. I also looked at a Civic Type R but eventually went for the Astra GSI. CTR is all well and good if you enjoy red lining every gear to get the best from the engine, but with the Astra GSI Turbo you get equally good performance if not slightly better without having to work for it.
