    Hi all, my name is Simon,Just joined AOC. Currently driving a MK5 1.7CDTi SXI Astra Sportshatch.



    Have had a mk3 before that.

    Wonder if anyone can answer a question. Why is it some of the astra mk5 have the Ti part of CDTi in red and others in all silver

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the club, nice car

    Only the 1.9 150 bhp engine has the red TI part, the other 1.9 and 1.7 engines are all silver.

    I was pretty sure only the 1.9 150 had the red ti, unless they have the red ti for the most powerful one of each engine size

    indeed they did, on the earlier ones. the silver Ti is the 80PS version and the red Ti is the 100PS version. The 80PS one was phased out and replaced with the 1.3CDTi ecoFLEX.

    Welcome to AOC Simon, how are you finding the mk5??

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
