Hi guys. I posted on here a little while ago asking what goes wrong with MK4 Astra's as I'm thinking of getting one next.
Generally they seem sound cars from all the feedback.. but I want some kind of performance out of it too if I get one.
I wouldn't be spending loads, 2k budget I guess... so I guess my options are the earlier 115BHP 1.8 16v, 2.0 16v (135BHP?) or the 2.2 16v which worry me with this oil starvation issue.
Are the 2.0's tuneable and worth buying? Or would I be better aiming for a different engine and if so, why?
How economical are the 2.0's?
What could I expect from a full exhaust (4-2-1, silenced decat, catback system) and maybe drilled/de-restricted airbox and good panel filter?
