    Had the same problem on my old MK3 Astra 1.4 spi. It only seemed to be when the engine got warmish and when it did cut out it wouldnt always start straight away i had to wait for it to cool down first. Took it to VX in the end as was fed up and started to hate the car for it.

    Turned out to the distributer (not just cap the whole thing) cost me about £200 in total including them finding the fault and fixing it. Alot of money but i didnt care as i was so pleased it worked afterwards i forgot all about the money LOL

    I think a new Distributer is about £100. This would be my first guess but a mate of mine had a similar problem on his mk2 1.3 and i was his coil breaking down and failing sometimes (I would put my money on the Dissy tho)

    Good Luck!!!

    Hope this helps.
