    VXR or MK1 Turbo??

    Hypothetical question at this stage, but was just wondering ,
    Currently have about 11-12k budget for another car and am thinking of a astra H CDti or Sri T, but i love the styling of the VXR, but to get one of them would have to sell my 'mint' MK1 GTE with LET.
    Do i need 2 cars? no but no i would regret losing the mk1 but a VXR is so tempting, What would you do????

    if you get the cdti you can get it to 200bhp currently and soon 240bhp more is in devlpment at the moment not bad when they still do 40+ mpg even at those figures!

    Very tricky decision, MK1 GTE turbo (pretty unique) or a VXR (lovely car)

    good luck with your decision!

    The pix i have of the mk1 are poor, she is currently getting a little paint and will be back with me at the end of the month.
    Thinking CDTi for daily grind and MK1 for fun???
    I already have a VEC CDTi 150 as our family motor so i know how good the engine is.

    If the mk1 is a good example then don't sell it - you will only regret it.

    it would be a very sad sad day if u had to get rid of the Mk1 - my fave astra of all time and not too many of them left in good condition means u have to keep it!!!

    You'd defo regret letting it go if u ever did so
