New to this forum today, so hello!!
Just looking for a bit of advice in buying a MK4 Astra.
Im 22 and have held a license since August 2007, driving a Corsa C.
Don't have any no claims due to cancelling my insurance to swap for a bike in the summer months.
My question is, which engine Astra is a best bet, more reliable, good MPG etc etc. My Corsa has been near-on bullet proof up until the oil switch went just recently. (Z14XEP)
I've read a few reviews and been to see a couple of different cars, but figures I would be better off asking for advice on an Astra forum.
Insurance is more or less the same, doesnt matter what engine:
2.2SRi / 2.0SRi Turbo - £1200 per year
2.0GSi - £1450 per year
I was expecting this.. having no NCB yet.
I have seen a couple of C20LETs as well, but then reliability may become an issue if its a quick conversion..
Just looking to buy in the next two months and being that I'm so keen, I felt I'd get advice as soon as I can..
Any advice is appreciated.
