Re: Sorry, another buying advice topic

Get a pre gpf 1.6t so look for the lower 0-60 times. I drove a newer one and didn't feel as good as my 16 plate 1.6t sri. I think late 18 they changed.

Re: sri with elite map - ideal

I have a 1.6t sri with the sport button. If it's off the car feels flat to me. The boost seams to come on quicker rather than have to press harder on the accelerator and wait for things to build up. I was having a play with a golf GTI and I was struggling until hit hit the sport button. Once that w...

Re: Sorry, another buying advice topic

Tried all the different versions of the K and settled with my 1.6t sri. Has everything I need and goes very well indeed. You will get 40mpg on your run if you drive it normally. 40k on the clock and never a problem unlike most other engined K's.

Re: Grinding gears, mainly 2nd

Yep mine does it! You have to get things just right or it will crunch. Never does it when I'm messing on my own so must be nerves if I'm up against another car!

Re: Paintwork impossible to maintain

1.6t 16 plate with 42k on the clock and the paint work is ok, normal chips on the front but you have to look close. My previous 1 series was no better tbh.

Re: 1.6T 200ps around leeds area??

One of the reasons I got my 1.6t astra, too many scumbags wanting to break in and take the keys. Boring looking astra is of no interest but goes at 98% of a gti.

Lowering

Hi, I'm considering lowering my 1.6t 30mm with the Ebach springs. Dont want to go to 40mm as it's a family car 1st and that may be a step to far. Anyone lowered theirs and if so how has the ride and handling changed?

Re: Astra K 1.4t (150ps) vs Astra J 2.0cdti (165ps) performance

Like most petrol cars especially a turbo one with decent poke, just keep it on the boil and you will take out a similar diesel everytime. Drive it properly.
