Astra TURBO good?
What does everyone think of the new Astra Turbo? When it came out I wondered if i should have waited to test drive this car before I bought my BA Xr6.
it looks fairly sweet - 2L 147kw engine, mid 7s to one-hundred - leather interior, 17inchers ect. for $37K.
still i think i would have still gone the XR6 - similar performance but much more car for your money (very suprisingly the Xr6 also uses less fuel!!).
in the end i think the turbo astras a great little car - but despite the turbo, its still really just a front wheel drive runabout....
what does everyone think of it?
