don't know about the 16V John, but my 8V is fantastic. it's not overly quick in a straight line - but then straights are the boring bits that link the curves - and it's damn good in bends - one of the best handing cars i've had - and that includes a porsche, rs turbo & more. mine is very, very good on fuel - over 50mpg driving 'normally', easy to work on for a modern car, parts are cheap & plentiful, plus, they've been out a while so there's lots of support/knowledge out there. having said that, they don't go wrong that much, you'd have no more or less hassle with an Astra of the same age. buy it.
