Rear shocks went at 60k, but I'm really giving the car a thrashing and she still won't give in.
Very cheap parts available widespread. Interior is still mint!
The ICE is good with components in the front and coaxials in the back.
Wheelspins and burnouts can prove expensive since 195/60/14 tyres don't come too cheap!
If only Vauxhall put discs on the back then this car would be perfect!!!
Lovely performance, 0-60 under 10 seconds and easily hits 100 with no effort at all! (damn Gatsos won't let me take her to the limit!).
Loads of grip with the 195/60/14 alloys.
I've beaten a BMW 325i and a Punto GT, and this car is standard!!!
Can't wait to see the performance when I slap a Pipercross filter and Piper straight through on it! De-cat pipe and chip should get me hitting 120-125bhp from the 95bhp standard!!
The gearbox is too close in ratio between 3rd, 4th and 5th and screwing the car involves giving the clutch a hiding too! She'll hit 135mph no problem! I WANT A GSi Now!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
