            The German Paper "AutoBild" told the same. If General Motors gives their OK to Opel for a 4wd system, Opel will produce one for the new Astra. The new Vectra OPC/VXR will for sure have 4wd.

            If you see how much bhp the enemies got (Focus 280, BMW 1 306, Gold R36 300,...) Opel/Vauxhall has to go with.

                Doesn't GM now have is fingers in Subarus pies? I read somewhere that the running gear from the Impreza could be used.
                I have a difference of opinion to you.

                          First they wanted to bring it 2010.

                          Now, because the Golf is build in 2008, Opel wants to do the same (some founts said).
                          But I don't believe Opel will follow and do the same mistake VW allready did.

                          Anyway, the Astra H is most sold car in Europe, why build a new one by next year?

                            The Nova Sport came with twin 40's in the boot for you to decide whether to fit or not, maybe the VXR will come with a spare transfer box in the boot cause if the Cavalier Turbo's are anything to go by you'll need it!!

                              Cavalier transfer boxes were okay if treated properly! my one had done 100k and was still perfect when I got rid of the car.

                              That said I'd expect them to use a slightly different system, something like the VAG haldex, which is pretty good, works in a similar fashion to the cavalier one but is an improved design.

                              What will be interesting is to see if the new vectra vxr appears as 4wd as rumoured and if its rwd bias..
