    Aye, only sold as Opels in some countries in Europe.. Slow engine in a Corsa so it must struggle in an Astra

    They were going to release it over here....glad they didn't. Can't imagine anything much slower than the 1.6 8v or 1.7 DTi.

    Technically, the Z12XE should go better than the X16SZR. The Z12XE in my Corsa gave out 80.3hp. Very small power band though.

    Though, the Corsa was dead slow and stop.

    Ray - The lad that brought my 19's that lives in Malta has a 1.2 16v astra. It would have been interesting to see what it was like on 19's!
