Happy new year Stebbo, if it is the GSI they're going to race it'll cost a fair bit to buy one of them. They're already racing the Astra in DTM I understand. You don't want a GSI anyway, can do you a good deal on a one year old 1.0SRI.

It's the 5 door hatch for BTCC comeback - see photograph below.

I understand that it's based on a 1.6T Elite Nav with IntelliLux lights after consultation with Pacmania, so that it will be at the top of the food chain (Podium). :lol:

Really like my 1.6 sri, lovely drive just wish there was a limited slip diff to make better use of power when cornering. Manchester is always wet too so always struggling for traction when put foot down even after letting a bit of air out of tires (37psi at fronts seems a couple too much to me) . Might consider upgrading to gsi if ever release it and has a lsd. Wonder when the vxr will make an appearance? ;)
