    Odd isn't it?

    That we have to "struggle" to get standard parts form our dealers, but in America you can walk into any GM dealer and get officially sanctioned tunning parts to make objects of desire like this....









    Tissues ready.....

    Doesn't seem to want to load for me. But I can see a turbo sat on a pole...it's not that 2.2 Ecotec thing with 1000bhp is it?

    .........I bet no bugger buys any of that stuff either.

    Ive never ever seen 1 Chevrolet Astra out there ever.

    Think of the demand for those sort of bits over here! and they dont sell it.

    Someones got their target market sorted
    323 BHP / 312 lbft.......

    That's cause they never sold the many in North America. It was intended for the South American market.

    Those engines were found in the Cobalt, of which I had one as a hire car when I was out in California last month. You can really tell it's a MK4 by the way it drives, but the build quality is utterly misserable on them.

    you would think you would be able to get parts like that over here

    If someone was to start importing that stuff im sure they would make a mint
