    Very nice cars. I've just bought a pre-facelift. 200bhp is quite easy to achieve with a tuning box or a remap. Anything else is mega money for not a lot more.

    What trim would you be looking at? SRI, Elite?

    They're pretty much the same as the Astra, only have a slightly stronger gearbag (F40 instead of the Astra's M32). Taller 6th gear on them which seems to end up with the inlet/EGR clogging.

    High milers need rear suspension joints or they eat tyres, other than that they're pretty solid motors.

    Also, a lot of people say to go for the Elite, as it's easier to get an Elite to look like a fully loaded SRI, as you can just change the bumpers and the suspension, but you can't get the interior from the Elite into the SRI because of all the extra toys.

    I still chose the SRI though
