    do you mean better rear suspension than M1GST?!

    Think its gonna be a close one but I think Mat just might do it... may only be by a couple of days though
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    Yes, although 12 years late, Astra-G should have got it!

    Presumably the 4x4 transmission will be courtesy of Chevrolet Captiva / Vauxhall Antara.

    the suspension in the astra g/h is not 6yrs behind other manufactures,
    just its cheap and its better suited to the road conditons . brit roads are crap, no need for irs in medium sized hatchs. 888 proved that traling arm rear beams can work well with there 2001 astra btcc car , chances are the astra j will have a floorpan that will take both irs and traling rear beam
    suspention as its intended for a global market.

    I'm gonna say asytra j as mat has been killing us with suspense for too long.

    Mat - Now's your time to prove us wrong and get it finished
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
