    MK5 Vauxhall Astra 1.9 SRi CDTi (150) Sport Hatch?

    Thinking of getting one of these.. What are they like? Power? Mpg? etc? Usual running costs? Better getting one private or dealer? Any information will be greatly appreciated.. Thanks guys!

    I have one of these (well a 5 door version)
    45-50 mpg (standard)
    150bhp (standard)
    50-55 mpg (DTUK eco 3)
    200 bhp (DTUK eco3)

    Serivce every 20k or 1 year.

    Pro's: Lots of power and torque (will put a smile on your face)

    Cons: none realy apart from the car feeling heavy at the front and it souning like a diesel

    Usual problems are egr vales and swirlflaps. Recomend you get one with some warranty

    yes, i have to say, though i hate disels (just because they dont rev hight and ofcourse the noise) i was very very very impressed when i drove one of these a few weeks back.

    it could be because i have never driven a car with that much torque but i really liked it. and like paul mentioned, if you get those mods, the power will be even more!!!

    Thanks, i'll have a look into that.. Is the car really noisy due to it being a diesel?

    XP Pack = Exterior Pack ... is the side skirts, front and rear splitters, roof spolier and 18'' Penta Alloys.

    1.9 SRi I drove before xmas was very powerful, loads of torque, press sport button and you get loads more power and lots more torque. Great car to drive, 6 speed gear box, ideal if its got cruise (if not it can be retro-fit) on motorways.
