    Bora 2.0 petrol opinions

    Thinking of swapping astra for one if these so has anyone got any advice on problems with them? I want it to last me a while and I might modify it a bit, so what are people's thoughts on these? Thanks

    I had a 2.0 A4 petrol which is the same I engine, not a bad engine. It wasn't the fastest thing but it had plety of pull. Could get 40mpg on a run but it averaged 30. Can't really tell you much else

    Reliable, we had to replace every coil pack one by one between 80-90,000

    This is going back a few years but think we used to pay about 50 fitted.

    Other than that it was just wear and tear. What's your budget?
