Opel Astra 1.8i Coupe Bertone — Performance: acceleration is good but not great. Same for braking. Handling is good, at least for a coupe. Build Quality: car has over 60,000 miles and not rattles, a few squeaks in the interior though. But nothing too bad. Quality of plastics is good, like most European cars. Appearance: I love the exterior styling, as I love coupes. However, the front and back should both have been slightly longer to make the shape perfect. The interior is not too attractive but leather heated bucket seats as well as a good option list (auto A/C for example), makes it a nice interior to spend time in. Cost of ownership: gas mileage is roughly 30 miles per gallon. Maintenance is not too expensive for the moment as only motor oil has been changed.

Pros

Like that it's reliable and cheap to run

Cons

Boring to drive, has tendancy to understeer if road surface is slippy.

Look For Fsh. Always Check For Timing Belt And Water Pump, Need To Be Changed Every 50k. — Essential to find an Astra with traceable history. Preferably leased cars with FSH are the best buy. 1.4 16V very perky and easy on fuel (depending how you drive of course). 1.6 + 1.8 not worth the higher road tax or fuel expense. Higher spec cars have better sound proofing look for sunroof, 4 electric windows and possibly Air Con.

My Feier-flitzer — 125 HP 1,8 ltrs has new front led lights on front, will have new rims and wheels, new air filter, side boards painted in same red like the car nearly 33.000 km nice to drift, not bad acceleration, just needs a little bit to much gasoline

Pros

Modified version takes your breath away, litrally...

Cons

If you dont know what a Coupe is, then it gets mistaken for the 4 door Astra

The Best Car I've Ever Had. — Chose the Astra 2002 Coupe Turbo over the old E36 M3, I dont regret it as once you have felt the turbo delivery your mind is made up, the car is also very rare with less than 400 still on the South African roads, its a true collectors car as I dont think Opel will ever make another real coupe, the new astra CC is just a joke.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Speed, Handling

Cons

Mileage

25

Speed — The acceleration and the handling is the best int he Astra. I feel there is no other car which can be as good as the Astra. The interiors are also good. The seating space matches my requirements. Well the mileage is not so good. But its worth riding the Astra.

A Surprising All-rounder — A competent small car with far better handling than people generally believe, holding its own with the much-lauded C170 Ford Focus. More than a match performance-wise with the two-litre turbodiesel, getting to 205 km/h comfortably. Excellent ride. A practical car, which I tested over 9,000 km through different European countries.

Those curves

Cons

Expensive to repair.

25

Best Car I Ever Had... Irreplaceble... — Like I said. OPEL ASTRA COUPE 2lt TURBO. Need I say more? 147kW standard, leather seats, seat warmers, best looks. Performance: 0-100 in 7.4sec (tested it myself) Fun factor: YES! Definitely. Cost of ownership: Bit expensive to fix something, and the spares shops will ALWAYS give the wrong part first.
