    Astra sri 1.8 mk4 vs,s mk4 1.6sxi

    Just a quick question, had a bit of a blast up a slip road in my mk4 1.8 sri against a nearly indentical mk4 1.6sxi, problem was i wasnt getting away from him just very slightly before we joined the motorway, reading in total vaxhaull its saying theres nearly 2 seconds of a difference to 60, 1.8 8.5, 1.6 10.5, could there be a prob with my car all feels fine or is there just not a great deal of difference between both models

    I think you should have pulled away, it there could have been some other factors like driving style and if you had loads of weight in the car eg people and ice

    Unless you raced from standing still then 0-60 wont mean anything. Theres not a massive difference in power - 15-20bhp? It would only be once you get to silly speeds that the difference would really start to make itself known and you should pull away. The difference is never going to be too dramatic.

    i have the 1.6 8v and have kept up with and in some cases beat the 1.6 sxi's i think it is just driving style and the few other factors mentioned.

    you can get a 1.6 8v in an sxi im pretty sure? if it has just 1.6 then its a 1.6 8v 1.6 16v for the 16v version

    i drive a 2.0 differences arent massive between models it comes down to btween certain speeds

    i.e a 1.6 may take the edge on me as my engine is heavier but after 20-30 i should in theory cope then above 60 i will be well away
