I currently have a 1.6 8v mk4 Ls and it has served me well this past year but i have grown impatient with it and dishartened with the little grunt it has. I have recently turned 20 and feel a change in Car is now a must especially since my current car is not in the best of conditios thanks mainly to the current owner (me) Clicky on linky
As you can see by the link not good. because of this and some trouble with points me having 3 for speeding and an earlier clame on one of my previouse policies, insurance cost is an issue. So to get to the point i am looking for an astra mk4 sport or SRI and have been looking into it for a while i have noticed that these 2 choices wont make a massive impact on my insurance so long as there the 1.8 variants wich is what i need right now.
Ok i was wondering what you think of the 1.8 mk4's and wich variant you recomend? Im aiming for a 3 door, with or without aircon and the ability to fit cruise control eventually (so am i correct in saying fly by wire is needed for that).
I am after a 1.8 to get the power fix i crave with the sensability of fairly good economy and low insurance costs. but am open to all surgestions.
