    Astra GSi Turbo?

    Hi

    Just wanted to find out everyone's opinion on the above car? I absolutely love the looks of them but i heard they have alot of trouble with EML constantly coming on?

    I have a Rover 220 GSi Turbo and have always seen the astra as a more modern version. So have been looking into buying one.

    Any pointers?


    Thanks Marc

    I have 1 and love it. Engine managent never comes on. Not near as much as my old mg/rover!! No comparison!

    They're fast standard and very tunable for not much cash.

    Can't be, the Rover is much quicker as standard


    Whats with the SRi turbo's then, whats different about them? Am i right in thinking that Arden blue is only available on the GSi's
