In Reply to: M3's are too heavy, so my Opel Astra is faster. posted by Antonio Empanao on September 06, 2001 at 14:25:57:

An Astra GLS weighs almost 2500 lbs. with it's 2L, 8-valve engine and transmission which I'm sure weigh quite a bit less than the S14 and Getrag 265. So, with the M3 engine and tranny, I'm sure the Astra is quite near the M3's 2700 lb. curb weight.

That only addresses power-to-weight comparisons. What about handling, feel, quality, etc? The Opel/Chevy Astra IS A GENERAL MOTORS PRODUCT FOR GOD'S SAKE!!!

Why don't you put an S14 in a Yugo and then come back and brag about how your car is SO MUCH BETTER than our stupid M3s? Geez!


I'm a professional. If you want me to give you some advise about the M3 engine, you just have to send me an e-mail.
