    Question decisions! decisions!

    Hey guys

    I currently own a 1.6 16v astra sport (W reg) and im selling it in a couple of days and was really debating about what to get next , these are my choices :

    vauxhall astra 2.2i 16v bertone

    vw golf gti 2ltr

    lexus IS200 SE 2ltr

    now i was wondering which of these has the best performance, reliability etc

    any advice or suggestions would be amazing.

    cheers guys

    From them three cars i'd go for IS200 but why not consider a mk4 Astra turbo rather than the 2.2 bertone!?

    According to the Parkers guide The 2.2i 16v produces 144 bhp, 31 mpg, 135 mph & the 2.0i 16v Turbo produces 197 bhp, 31 mpg, 152 mph, Insurance groups are only slightly higher for the Turbo, Group 12-13 for the 2.2 & group 15 for the Turbo but i suppose that slightly higher insurance group for the Turbo can be a killer!!
