    mark 2?
    didnt think there was a mk2 SRi? wasnt it a GTE?

    have you got a link to the advert, will make it easier for people to know which one your talking about,

    Yeah the Mk2 SR was the first then came the SRi with the multipoint fuel injection and also the 1.8i 8v GTE before they changes to the 2.0 8v and then the C20XE 2.0 16v

    Cracking cars..... I used to own a Belmont SRi and loved every minuite of it.

    I am sure they are group 8 or 9 insurance.... My belmont SRi was my second car and first Vauxhall. My first was a 1.1 Fiesta and what a jump in power....

    Buy it and restore it if you car as they will be very few left....

    There is a also the later Astra Mk2 SXi on e-bay local to me too

    Yeh, these cars are getting rare now. My dad use to own one.
    The engines will run forever & they are pretty nippy 0-60 9.0secs and top speed is around 121mph. 115bhp/116Ib/ft.
    Depending on source figures.
    Even with 140,000miles on the clock my dads would crack 120 on the speedo. A few years ago mind.
    I have often thought of buying one of these, or even a Mk2 Cavalier SRI with the '130' 2.0L 8v engine and restoring it. Improving the suspension & brakes and maybe dropping a turbo engine in. Cos they aren't weighed down with ABS, airbags, side protection beams etc they don't weigh much and would really go!
