2000 Vauxhall Astra Coupe Turbo 2.0 16v turbo from UK and Ireland
Wait for the Focus RS if you want real performance at 20,000ukp
Severe turbo lag in damp weather.
Poor performance for a 2.0 turbo and drinks as if it's packing 350bhp not 190.
Don't go for leather as the quality of the finish is suspect for a £1,000 extra. You would be better off getting the body kit fitted to spice up those dull looks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Yes, you could get a Focus instead - but why trade in a good-looking Bertone coupe which is almost as handsome as its Calibra predecessor in favour of the ugliest hatchback in Britain?
Focus, that's a joke in itself, for starters the Focus is something my Grandad would drive to take him shopping in, it's a horrible car (come to think of it, all Fords are horrible!).
The Astra Coupe is a sexy looking car, I don't own one, but I did own a Calibra Turbo which was an amazing car, it would leave my friends cars for dust, and they owned Escort crapy Cossies.
All I'm saying is you should try and think about what you are saying when you disrespect a top car like an Astra Coupe.
