      You've forgot to mention that an Opel (Vauxhall in the colony's ) is completely unreliable... and the golf will survive it lightyears, even the Renault is a better quality ... opel what's good in the age of the Ascona, Record, senator en the Omega, sins than, all glory has gone, better off in a Dacia

      I saw a Golf GTI in work a couple months ago with 200k miles on it. I was surprised that a performance car could do 200k spirited miles

      bullshit.. if a fwd turbocharged car got limited steering angle to keep down oversteer and torquesteering.. you will criticize the too wide turning (as fiat coupe 20v turbo have limited steering angle).
      ANYBODY which got a pilot licence there, could come and show you THE SAME oversteering and torque steering for the these other two cars. But depends of what autodealers need to sell more.. AND which of them pay more to tv show producers :)))

      That model Astra had a terrible chassis and an engine made of chocolate and electrics made by a plumber.

      you can upgrade the Astras handling either way since its cheaper than the Golf and Renault by 1000 pounds

      So, you have to feed the power in gently . You soon get the hang.

      That's the old MKIV R32...not the MKV R32...the MKV did it in 1.30.4

      Doesn't matter diddly squat about performance that you cant use in the real world anyway and saving a measly grand. You would have a tacky Vauxhall....I will have the GTI up the drive thank you very much. Ask yourself what the re-sale value would be on a Vauxhall as opposed to a trade in too dealer at a VW garage.......Not brilliant but I guarantee you that grand you saved would be gobbled up and much more besides.
