    Thinking of selling up for a C2 VTS.

    Hello, ive only owned my astra for a few motnhs (since june) and to be honest, i actually love the car so i dont know why i want to sell it, but im really craving a C2 VTS recently, more nippy than my 1.6 sxi and the insurance cost is about the same! what do you guys think? good move or dumb? (silly question in a astra forum!) If so, has any1 had any experiences with a C2 VTS?.

    One other thing, i have a few grand left of finance on my astra.. the car could easily sell for around the £4500 mark, so what would i have to do regarding this? many thanks.

    Personally i dont like the look of them.

    But the engines are meant to be quite pokey.

    That gearbox only comes with the VTR, its a 110bhp less powerfull. The VTS has a standard 5 speed close ratio manual gearbox

    go for it then will be nice small nippy car if you get a cheap one
    the only prob he has is Drive shafts/CV joints made of paper but that was cheap to fix
    a Remap an exhausts works well on them
