    SXI VS Sport

    Yo ppl! I have just purchased a MK4 1999, astra sport 1.8i 16v (3dr, aircon), i love it and with low mileage full service history and in MINT condition it was a steal at £3000, but i was looking up statistics and it seems to be exactly the same as the SXI apart from the SXI has a few extra BHP anyone know why this is????

    BTW excellent site and if anyone knows of where to get some lower springs for this model i would be pleased!! (prefer 35-40mm) cheers MONO

    the sport has 115bhp and 1.8 sxi after 2001 has 125bhp thats about it some of the sports have a better spec then the sxi as well
    and to top it off the 1.8 sport is cleaper to insure 1 g lower then the 2001 sxi's

    Haved owned both & even though the sport is 10 bhp down it still feels quicker than the sxi.

    SXIs are quick even though they are 1.6 or 1.8.
