Hi All!
Greetings from Baltics :) You have here nice English-speaking community.

I´ve been driving Opels for quite some time.
Since 2016 we had Corsa 1,4 automatic for family´s second car. We were planning to drive it for like another 10 years BUT....

..some time ago I discovered that 1,6T is discontiniued for Astra. Furthermore! All new Astras will have 3-pot petrol engines :lol:

That´s why a deal was made for this nice vechile. It was 1 year old, 26k km driven and for sale on quite a bargain.

Previos Corsa and Astra together.

what I like:
  • I really like this car looks! :)
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Punchy 147kw engine and smoooooooth automatic gearbox. It runs sth like 1750rpm @ 100km/h. No need to rev it over 2500rpm. Plenty low end torque.
  • Comfty ergonimic seats
  • LED headlights are phenomenal

    whar Opel could have done better:
  • I expected it to have some exterior lights under mirror / on door cards
  • reverse camera is useless :lol: I´m used to VW Passat hidden camera solution
  • Corsa had electric windshield heating that we already miss in these chill mornings

Greetings from the UK
Very nice car you have there , same as mine but I have the silver colour. VX-line does look good with the side skirts and bumpers and like you say the 1.6t engine is a good one.

Hello and congratulations to your K. Exactly because of these little weaknesses, I love the K. So you can wonderfully improve it to his liking.

Well, my "tuning" days are over I suppose :D Pretty sure there will be no major upgrades coming.
Actually I´m myself dailydriving mostly a Passat. Astra is driven mostly by my wife.
