    thanks will ask about the hood. Just been looking around and i reckon its woth roughly a grand more than i have my car up for so a staight swap would be a good deal for me! Will approach it with some caution i think and maybe do a hpi check.

    IMO, the 1.6 in the Astra is just too wee an engine for the size/weight of the car. And you'd be going backwards in terms of spec and comfort.

    If it was my money, I would not do the swap.

    Don't get me wrong, I do really like the Mk4 Astra (I have had 2) but would prefer a Vectra anyday.

    Very slow and all the mk4 cabs have an electric roof.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
