    SRi Turbo, or stick with the 1.6 beast.....

    Well i will have had my astra 1999 club for 2years end of june and wondering weather to keep the beast lol, or upgrade to an sri turbo, gsi bit too much insurance for me, so would get an sri and put some gsi stuff on it .

    Wouldnt want an sri turbo over 80k miles or is it okay for them to be? how reliable are they?


    or should i just stick with my 1.6 which has only 77000 and has served me fine so far lol

    if you're asking then it means you probally can't afford the insurance on the SRi-T and a choice between the cars only has one obvious winner.

    i have had 2 sri turbos and very reliable cars if looked after most are getting high miles now though mine is still only on 54,000 miles and in 3 years apart from mods only had new clutch and brakes, mine may go up for sale in new year but be hard to part with it
