    I like the look of the Astra, haven't driven one yet though

    I would think at least a 1.6 would be needed though, 1.4 seems a bit small for the size of car

    OOOHHHH your so right Allan, I got caught out at the whirlies, cut out and put the foot down ...nothing.

    I would say a 1.6 would be a lot better...

    lol, your too used to the 2.0T

    I don't think I could ever go back to anything smaller than my 1.9, the only way is up, as the song goes

    Or one of the Chevvies!!!!!! At least that's what I got last time a Lacetti, only slightly slower than my GSI.

    I'm Mrs Spikey©, and I got an astra convertible 1.8.

    Spikey© is always moaning about my seats being hard and narrow...they give him a numb bum and pains in his legs if he drives it for too long. There's only one answer to that...

    STOP DRIVING MY CAR!!!

    Seriously though...it does seem more geared for the female driver with narrower seats and low clearance with the windscreen (Neil hates having the roof down because the wind catches him in the forehead...I say it's his fault for being too tall!) You can hear him sighing with relief when he climbs back into his vectra.
