    Keep the Hatch or go Coupe?

    Well had the SRI for 8 months now and as much as i love the car i am getting just a wee bit bored with it now, i dont want to mod it as i think anymore and it would look a bit soft.

    So had a thought about getting a nice coupe min of 2.2 i reckon and not a soft top

    cant think of pro's or cons for either as surely there pretty much the same bar the obvious styling differences

    I have exactly the same dillema as you. Im coming up to 2 years owning mine now. And I like it, but just had enough really. I would say you'll get easily bored with it.

    It all depends on your reasons for changing. For me, I want something more pokey, so I am thinking turbos.

    I will probably get shot down for saying this as well. But I dont think coupes look as good as hatch's.....

    I think the best option is for me to keep the Hatch as it is a V reg 2ltr. Keep saving up the cash for a newer Astra sri (55reg onwards) and then keep the sri i have at the moment for a project

    i get bored far to easy LOL
