    What can I say I Love my gsi after 12mth I can still go out and come back with a smile on my face. It's just great you can drive normal round town at low revs but hit the loud peddal and heart rate rises and you get a grin ear 2 ear
    You don't hear of major problems on hear with them but the best bit is the sound is addictive







    Typical I say good things and someone puts another post up with a misfire I still will say you don't get many problems with the 3.2

    Xenon headlights
    Dual climate control
    Auto dip rear view mirror
    Auto wipers
    Full leather (if your lucky to find a GSi for sale with it, they do come up every now and then)
    Vauxhall do say to change the cambelt at 80k but alot of people get them done at 40k, might be advisable if you want to change the waterpump as the cambelt's in front of it.
    Oil cooler breather pipes can get blocked (i never had an issue with mine).
    Full service history would be good.

    They are a fantastic car and for the money they go for now you can't go wrong.
    I'm missing my GSi but the power of the VXR helps.
