    So sad :(

    I am the proud new owner of the new sport hatch in a fantasic 1.6 16v 115ps engine but......

    I really miss my diesel.

    I had a 1.3 cdti corsa sxi before my astra and for a little engine it pulled really well through the gears. did tweak it a bit too so it was i bit faster than standard.

    Decided to go petrol this time but now i am only 500 miles in and thinkin i should of gone for the 1.9cdti instead. not sure how much more i would of been paying on the insurance but for what am paying in petrol it probably would of been better.

    Someone put me out of my missery and tell me there is a really good remap available with huge gains and low cost, or this astra will be going back in 11 months and 3 weeks.

    If it helps, just remember this quote

    Driving a diesel is like being gay, they are both more acceptable than they used to be, but are both still wrong

    I don't want anyone to take offence at the joke, as it's just a joke, and working with alot of gay men they lay into me with all the jokes about straight guys, so I'm just getting my own back

    No dont get me wrong i love the astra, its best car i have had by far but i really miss the torque from a diesel engine,

    I am going to trade it in, in a year and because i got it on the vauxhall friends and family i shouldnt really lose much on it, if anything.

    then can get the astra 1.9 and remap to 200 bloody break horse

    What do you get Torque wise with that remap???
