    Sorry to hear that mate.

    You don't have to leave mate, there are plenty of people on here that have moved on from their Astra's etc.

    What you replacing it with? Put a post up in the other car marquee's section bud, we tend to like most cars on AOC

    hiya pick her up tomorrow was looking at the compressors but asking to much money and there aint many ov them.
    I know they are not as fast as the astra but i think im calming down and i still have the power there incase a corsa boy pulls up beside me lol.
    As far as the astra turbos go i dont rate them very highly for reliabilty if you look on the forum its prob after prob for loads of people i will never own another vx this has put the nail in the coffin lol.
