    I had two of these Rich although they had the 2.0 dti engine. Did drive a 1.7 version for a week or so though and the turbo lag is real old school. As a works mule probably wouldn't matter.

    Those roof rails have just reminded me I have the bars with your name on here. Used them on both Astra's so I know they fit if that's what you end up with.

    had a mk3 estate, none turbo turbo diesel...that was how bad the lag was on that one...hoping it's better than the 2.0 dti zaffy i looked at earlier
