1993 Vauxhall Carlton GSi 24v 3.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Luxury, fast and good fun, and kills Fords at the lights
Nothing has gone wrong so far, but parts can be like rocking horse droppings to find. And somethings like exhaust pipes are very expensive and have to be made for the car to make it worth the while eg. standard tail pipe, £200 hand made, stainless steel one £150 and as the tail pipe rots every 3 years it's worth looking around.
The car is good fun to own and drive and I love it, it's the car I have always wanted to own since I was 18 and one dusted me at the lights when I was in my Renault 5 GT Turbo so they are quick cars, and not bad considering the GSi is nearly 2 ton in weight.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have just acquired a Vauxhall Carlton GSI 3.0, I've always wanted this car and it took me a long time to find one, but I'm pleased with it, a lot of car for a small layout.
I bought the car, a '91 J reg, digital dash, fully loaded - a lot of car. Seeing it cost over £24,000 new, I'm very pleased.
