Re: GTV or Spider?
I found the scuttle shake to be very noticeable on my dads Spider, especially on rougher roads. Its more of an annoyance than anything though.
You can feel the steering wheel moving around whilst you are going over the bumps, which is a bit unnerving at first.
Have a drive in one and see if it bothers you.
The problem with the Spider is that it wasn't designed as a convertible from the outset. It's a coupe with the roof cut off. Cars that were designed as a convertible from the outset such as Honda S2000's, Mazda mx-5's etc don't suffer as much scuttle shake.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
