    TV stats?

    Are the TV stats right about the MK4 astra SRi's?

    is the 1.8 SRI faster than the 2.0 and only0.3 seconds slower to 60 than the 2.2? or is that insurance friendly figures for the 2.2?

    May have to down grade from the GSi next year dependent on re mortgage etc so was looking at them and spotted the stats and wondered

    the 2001 onwards 1.8 (Z18XE) has the same 0-60 time as the 2.0 (X20XEV)

    its not faster, pretty even match iirc

    no idea on the 2.2 tho.

    I would take most of the figures in TV with a pinch of salt if I were you. I have 8 of the last 13 magazines and they have different figures in about 5 of them.

    the 1.8 and 2.0 are very very similar 0-60 etc, but you'll feel the difference when 3-4 up or at motorway speeds when you want to accelerate past somebody (2.0 has a lot more torque iirc)
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!

    with a 2.0 released in 1993 and a 1.8 7 years later you would expect a little improvement,

    think is the 2.0 was fitted with 2 different box's a f18 close ratio and a f23.

    The f18 does seem to pull a lot quicker but runs out of top end.

    But the 1.8 is suprisingly quick, can quite easily nip the ankles of the supposedly GTi's out there

    whats the best way to tell what gearbox you have? my x20xev seems to pull quite fast through the gears and top end pull is brilliant.
