Chick Magnet — I owned a Coupe-Cabriolet Astra (Twintop) from 2006 to 2009. I fell in love with the styling at the first sight. I would park the car, pull up a chair, sit and smoke a cigarette for hours, watching and admiring it. And I still find myself looking at it's photos from time to time. All the world seems to think like myself because whenever I rode it, people were literally falling inside, drooling over the looks and making oblivious comments. The second I retracted the roof, all hell broke loose! It was impossible not to get embarrassed because of the attention I got. Rear seats were cramped, but who cares anyway. Also the trunk was actually quite large for a cabriolet but I managed to fill it with my sound system and made it practically unusable. So I had a storage problem. But the biggest frustration was it's performance. You get a decent 105hp engine and put it on a 1600kg car and what do you get? Bloody tears. But it had a lot of potential because after you've sped up to 4th gear and beaten the gravity, the car accelerated effortlessly to factory limited 200km/h. I've seen a lot lighter cars that can't do this. Albeit, after chip tuning the engine I was able to get 170nm of torque and it changed the car's performance drastically. It was a lot faster and responsive but still not like my focus.

Best Bang For Buck On The 2nd Hand Market In It's Price Class! — Performance - exceptional in all performance areas Build Quility - Sturdy construction, but costly if neglected Appearance - Kind of a sleeper, will run with the big boys yet looks like a ordanary hatch Cost - fairly expensive on repairs, but overall not too bad Fun Factor - Tons of fun if you dare to go there!

Performance.. It has a family car engine..

Topless — It is really a slow car.. It really needs some engine modifications. Its hardtop can be more solid :) Sometimes it doesnt want to do what you want to do :) It is really economical.. Less gas consumption.. With this car you can feel yourself unconfortable with others look :)

Pros

Great value for a conti

Cons

power is sufficient but not adequate

25

Great Value For A 1.6 — Easytronic transmission ensures that the engine's power is more directly channeled to the wheels, as opposed to typical torque-converter gearboxes, car's realtively cheap for the power and quality, fuel consumption is also acceptable car's quite well balanced and is a value bang

1.9 Cdti Sport — it just loves to Go and Go but don't forget it's a diesel car that love's to drink diesel, very smooth on the corners adn slick in a stright line, great for talking a ride on the weekend and to work from monday to friday then just take to a track and let it be in peace.

Opel Astra H Opc — I love all the extra equipment: The DVD90 radio with CID (Colour Info Display), navigation system and MP3 player. The AFL lights, the Recaro seats, the rear mirror which tones the glass to prevent getting blinded, but most of all the moverfull engine with 240 bhp. It goed from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds.
