    Astra Hatchback or Twintop

    I am unsure which one to go for, hatchback or twintop?

    It would be a diesel engine.

    depends what engine is in each option really.....

    1.6 Twintop = Ł17000
    1.9 CDTi 120 Sporthatch = 17500
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    Diesel, the 1.9 can cope with the additional weight without denting performance, the 1.9 engine isnt too noisy so wont intrude back in to the car with the top down.

    for that money id be tempted and go for the vxr, much niver car imo.

    The coupe turbo really was the top of teh astra range.

    Imo the vxr hatch is alot higher up the ranking than teh twin top/

    The twin top is ugly as sin aswell imo

    not really, the VXR has a slightly diff kit (mainly the front) to the exterior pack, you can easily tell the difference if you've seen both.

    The exterior pack is just the like the irmy kit on the mk4 coupe.

    get a Sport Hatch 1.9, powerclicked by DTUK....

    Or pay Ł200 more a 1.9 remaped by 888? Cheaper than powerclicking it and still keeps the vaux / thrulby motors warrenty? Plus looks stunning in white.

    The T8 was never in the list also costs more to insure due to the set up.
