Having just got my new astra 2.0 sri vx, I find the blue tooth was not fitted and boy what a problem to have work carried out once it's left the factory???? It my sound small but not paying £800 plus for a factory sat/nav; I was hoping to use my I phone or lap top, is turning out to be a problem. which my local dealer is passing on to the factory?? It looks like the factory forgot to fit it!! So I have to send the car back to vauxhall, for a small switch to be fitted???? Not happy at all… Read Full Review

I'm sorry people, but to say that this car outclasses a Type-R (especially the DC2 Integra), is just nuts! The DC2 will eat this thing for breakfast around ANY track! There is a reason it is frequently quoted as being the best FWD car of ALL time! Yes it has slightly less power, but it also weighs a fair bit less than the Astra CT 16v. The other thing is, it has nowhere near the same level of reliability! Yes, the DC2 is a hooligan above 5-6000rpm, but below that, it is more than happy to do… Read Full Review

Best "value for money" to "fun" ratio you can have. These vauxhalls have the performance to go head to head with any other hot hatch without the ridiculous insurance premiums and the servicing is as cheap as you'd expect from a vauxhall. Comes with all the bells and whistles as well and the styling is sleek and refined so for a man of my age (35 next birthday!) you don't feel like a complete hooligan child driving it like you might in a type R or a clio 172… Read Full Review

Recently purchased the 2.0 Turbo 16V - Only possible criticism is that modifications such as bonnets, rear lights are hard to come by if you want good ones. Have resorted to some custom work myself.. Astra Coupe assistance needed?.. get in touch.. Mac… Read Full Review

It looks good and its comfy, that ' s it, reliability is terrible. It has broken down on us at least 5 times, has been off the road for approx 6 months of the 12 we have had it, it ' s had a new gear box, Lambda sensor, and god knows what else. It has cost us an arm and a leg.
This car has been a nightmare since day one. I have just got to work an hour late due to this breaking down on me in the middle of a junction, just stopped working on me for no reason, and would not restart, did 150 miles… Read Full Review

Well, all the above reviews are right on in my opinion, for a Vauxhall is probably the best you can by on the market, when you weigh up price and insurance. 0-60 however is slightly out of the above, must have been timing their grandma's driving it cause the onboard trip comp in my Vauxhall Astra Turbo Coupe reads 5.9 sec! Top end is good for 150+ and through the gears it's awesome.
This car wipes the floor with any of your hot hatch's and has been a proven scubby eater. The traction control… Read Full Review

Black with full Irmscher kit, Xenon headlights, cruise control, climate, electric sunroof, etc, etc...
Performance of the Vauxhall Astra Turbo Coupe is stunning to say the least, acceleration in second and third gear is breathtaking, no turbo lag, best accelerating though from above 3000rpm. Because of the size of the doors, getting in and out in a car park can be difficult, The seats while very comfortable and supportive, can get damaged. The edges of the seat are particularly vulnerable to… Read Full Review

I bought my 2001 Astra Coupe Turbo back in January 2004 from Network Q with 40,000 on the clock. I turned down the Civic Type R because of high insurance and much less toys.
The best thing about this car is, it's stunning to look at, and even standard, the performance is outstanding. 0 - 60 takes just 6.8 seconds, and will keep on going until 153mph. The car easily sees off more prestigious cars, such as the BMW 330.
The amount of features is great too, such as electric everything, a/c and… Read Full Review

I just bought Astra Turbo Coupe in dark blue but at night it looks purple lol. It's a 2001 model with 38,500 miles on it with black leather heated seats 1 owner for 6k I got a real bargain. It's a quick car but you seem to be going quick when you put your foot down until you look at the speedo because engine remains quiet. I just sold my Clio Sport 172 and that seemed quicker off the line but it's not. I timed it with the stop watch and it's 6.8 0-60 and my Clio was 7.1 not much in it but for a… Read Full Review

I have only just recently bought this car and I think it's prob the best buy I have made with a Vaxuhall. After owning a 1.6 16V I changed to a 1.8 16V and I thought that was fast until I was blown away by this coupe, I was amazed that it still picked up in 5th gear, and the car really does attract attention, as for traction control it's a saftey devce but Vauxhall can fit a switch to allow you to have some fun. Overall this car is amazing I picked mine up at £7,000 with a nice 28k on clock… Read Full Review

I've had my 2 1/2 year old Vauxhall Astra Turbo Coupe from new and have in the main been pleased as it is a vehicle that is very easy to live with.
Although its mileage is now still less than 20,000, it has proven to be a reliable car other than when the water pump failed at 15000 but this was of course replaced under warranty.
Having recently returned from a drive to Scotland, it must be said that the firm seats did not make the journey a pleasure, so my next replacement vehicle will need to… Read Full Review

I bought a 12 month old Astra Coupe Turbo from my local Vauxhall dealer. It was already fitted with the full leather pack with heated seats and the full Irmscher styling kit (front spoiler, rear skirt etc.) I got it in Nocturno Blue. Its a very dark pearlescent blue. Probably the best colour it comes in! I added the Irmscher grille, door pins and chrome heater rings. A wise investment! It really lifts the car. I also debadged it apart from the Vauxhall logo on the boot. All in all, its now a… Read Full Review
