    what car shud i buy

    sorted out finances now and have got roughly 10k to spend, not quite enuff for a vxr or new sri-t 1.6. so either i stay with astra, so its gona have to be gsi or sri-t 200bhp, or maybe sumit else. like a vr32,seen one 2day, very nice and nearly 250bhp. also seen a scooby wrx sti, but they just too comon now.

    so either gsi or sri-t
    or buy cheaper gsi and mod the hell out of it,pmsl

    unless u guys got any ideas

    whats a vr32?

    think i would prefer a gsi over an sri-t. 10k's one of those funny sums would love it myself its just under a second hand vxr but just over a second hand gsi so which way do ya go? turbo coupe?

    Andy, I'm with him. Buy a decent not bad mileage GSI and pimp it to ****. You know it makes sense.

    Or get a 2.0T sport hatch, and drop it off at Courtenays for the day, a remap should see it have VXR performance, and leave you with plenty off modding potential

    have been looking at sport hatches, but all 5door. really want a 3 door if poss, did they do the sports hatch in 3 door.
    i looked on courtenays and 170bhp to 230/240 bhp is only £550

    Sport hatches only come as a 3dr, with the 170BHP engine, which as you said for £550 will have the same power as a VXR.

    Quite a few for around 10k on autotrader. IIRC all 170bhp models are 3dr, and the 200bhp models are 5dr.
    http://search.autotrader.co.uk/es-uk...ptions=&page=2 - I like the silver one, 2nd one down

    Bodystyles available are;

    5dr hatch
    Sport hatch (3dr)
    Twin top(2dr)
    Estate
