Vauxhall Astra Sport. — Bought the car as a cheap runabout in 2007. It was a nice car to drive, but abit on the slow side, and the handling left abit to be desired. Since then i have performed a few upgrades, bigger engine with modified ECU and induction system.Adjustable shock absorbers and lowering springs.Upgraded brakes and brake lines.Sticky tyres etc etc etc.And a heated leather interior.Its now a much better car to drive when your 'in the mood'.It will take on much much more expensive cars,but its not without its problems, the car has done over 150K miles and is showing signs of wear here and there.And since i have owned the car, its never been without a squeak or rattle.Fix one and another appears. But for the money you really cant go wrong.

Pros: Price, Price of parts, Ease of tuning.

Cons: Squeks here and there.

My 1997 Vauxhall Astra 1.4ls — so this is my car, i bought it for £190 which was quite cheap considering the condition it was in. i added corsa sxi 15"alloy wheels a banging sound system and have now recently started moding it. so far iv made my own custom rear bumper and side skirts colour coded to the car (front one still in the moding process), painted the brake calipers and drums (yes drums its only a 1.4cc) lol. iv then colour coded the wing mirrors, spoiler, door posts and the part under the windscreen where the wipers originate from. iv also installed a digital dash from an old gte which looks great. the car averages about 37 miles to the gallon depending on how heavy a right foot you have. (not very at the mo cause of the price of fuel) it generaly is a good allround car but the brakes are rubbish, (the disks and pads are fine but there to small for the car) i feel another mod comin on. lol

Pros: It starts every time guaranteed,

Cons: a bit slow and the brakes are rubbish
