This car is fantastic. There is so much that I could say about this car that would put anyone off buying one, but then there is more to make you buy one. I was looking to buy an Astra gsi at the time I came across this little gem. I feel in love with the car as soon as I put my foot down, big smiles all round.
The inside of the car can look very dirty very quickly so I would say to try and keep on top of that. The seats have loads of adjustment on them.
As for speed and handling this car would be hard to beat by other cars in its class.
Although the turning circle to the right is very wide, parking can be a problem at first, but I soon got used to it.
Drag race! I've beaten r-type civics, Astra gsi, cavalier gsi, Vectra v6,Renault 5 turbo, MG Zs 180,Golf GTI, and lots of boy racers in novas.
Although its not really a good idea to give this car a lot of stick when clod, engine noise will tell you that.
Altogether a marvilos car all round car.
