In All Excellent, But I Would Love A 1.8 16v Astra — Not the fastest car ever, but it's comfy and lovely to drive on short and long runs, it still looks good today and the shape came out in 1998, it's got plenty of space for it's class and the spec is pretty high :)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfort and Reliability

Cons: Slightly Sluggish in the lower gears

Astra 2.2 Sri — I love this shape Astra, i love the fact that its black. However i'd love to turbo and supercharge it, but by god its expensive. If anyone has a Z20 Let they wanna give me, i'd give it a good home..... in my Astra G.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks Sweet, Goes Well

Cons: Ya get to this level, your always chasing a GSi....

Astra Coupe Bertone — only two complaints that i can think of are that the traction control is a bit over sensitive at times and the interior could do without the plastic on the doors cards but other than that its great. Performance is fantastic when even unmodified and its very spacious. Fuel consumption on the 1796cc is a lot better than i expected although if you have a heavy right foot this can quickly drink fuel ! over all, a fun car to drive with endless modding potential.

Pros: fast, spacious, comfortable

Cons: t/c and interior plastics

My Car — Love my car!!!! it is a Vauxhall Astra Bertone. The only thing I don't like about it is the colour - Navy Blue Eugh but hey loved the car. It handles well, but just had a new engine put in so need to drive sensibly to "bed" it in. interior is black with a grey centre console.

Pros: The way it drives

Cons: The colour (Only my opinion)

Vauxhall Work Horse — Performance - Work horse but slow as a mule, handling is fairly good Build quality - Very Light chassis Appearance - Bertone model much nicer - Desperately needs a spoiler! Cost - Cheap as chips to run and touch wood very little mechanical problems - so far Fun - Typical vauxhall overstear means corners are great fun!!

Pros: Cheap to run

Cons: Slow...

Astra Berone Coupe — Owned my Astra since Feb 2008 and (touch wood)has never let me down, never missed a beat! for a 2+2 coupe it is suprising roomy with more than enough space for 4 adults (i've had 4 6ft plus blokes in it) and the leather seats really set the interior off setting it apart from other astra coupe's and 3dr astra's!the perforance isnt fantastic but manages but pull well and its mid-range grunt is suprisingly good for a car with only 125bhp!, and will easil pull from 60mph to 100mph without even breaking sweat!being a vauxhall the build quailty is good and parts seem to be waering well and doesnt look its age (6yrs old now)with imaculate body and paint work. Servicing is reasonabile, but with cam belts needing changing every 40000miles can prove costly if racking up the miles!fuel economy isnt good for a 1.8, but the close ratioed gearbox, high CO2 emissions (190g/km) and willingness to rev contribute to this(am averaging 24mpg)Overall is an excellant car full of toys and one which isnt seen to often(although those with 3dr astra hatchbacks try and replicate, so dont be fooled).

Pros: Mid-range grunt, stacks of toys, comfy interior

Cons: Close cam belt cnahge intervals, poor economy for engine size

Astra Gsi 2.0 Turbo 2003 — Looks stunning and has the performance to go with it and the petrol bill to match although for the power if it is used tamely is very good. Build quility is good and lets not forget its not a £100,000 ssports car so I'd concider it good. I'd say very fun and entertaining to drive but a bit bumpy on the roads round here!

Pros: Fantastic looks and performance

Cons: Running costs and petrol bill
