    Must be a standard turbo because mine eats CTRs.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Straight line speed, standard vs standard, they are both roughly equal. But I'd bet on the CTR if it was a twisty circuit.

    CTR owners do tend to make out they are faster than they actually are though, my mate has one and is a prime culprit of this, however most people do this regarding the car they own.

    agreed, civic is a lovely handling car, but the astra is easier to live with in the real world

    dont tend to drive along any race tracks on my way to work

    Civic Type R's are quicker 0-60, but on long roads like that, there's only so much a naturally aspirated car can do. The Astra had more torque, and pulled away.
