    mk5 astra H

    Hiya all, I am thinking of getting an Astra H Sri 1.8 or 2l turbo? What do u people think of them and is they any common faults? Donít work on a lot at work only thing we do is service and rear boot switches on then, and general items which do wear, what BHP has the 1.8 Sri got ? thanks James.

    The 1.8 SRi has 140 BHP, the 2.0T has (i think) 170BHP in the 3 door, and 200BHP in the 5 door.

    Had my 1.8 SRi for just over 3 years now and had the CIM replaced (common problem). Other than that no major problems other than rattles and squeaks (now rectiried) etc. 3 door, rear visability is poor but that is personal choice.

    1.8 125bhp, 1.8VVT 138, 2.0L as above

    join the dark side and get yourself the 1.9 cdti 150. With a simple DTUK box you'll see around 200 bhp and still get 40+ mpg lol
