    My 03 is fine mate, although I do hate the drive by wire as you can't do blip downs when changing down, well not reliably.

    The car has a massive fly wheel to make gear changes very smooth.

    If you do racing changes the engine doesn't always keep up and can cause a slight nose dive. This is the first car I've owned that I don't pull the gears though as the ecu doesn't seem to understand, but prob the same on drive by wire cars. I know the astra 1.6 bounces bad from 1st -> 2nd.
