    I'm no expert, but sounds like it might be running rich. Why not change the oil and filters? A few good blasts down the road maybe if carbon has built up in the heads.

    As above.. just a bloody good service and a good run down motorway at high revs for a while should hopefully do it..
    No astra at the moment, have a Vw golf 1.9Tdi, but watch this space...
