Am I wrong to think that these two are in fact exactly the same car?

    So they're the same cars lol

    Edit: Tbf they're the same car since the Opel Astra is just a rebadged Vauxhaull Astra GTC. I do think one having more handling is a little bit suspicious

    But the thing is, none of these are branded by Opel, both are Vauxhalls.

    Just adding to here because I'm a little bit confused on what the SR Astra is supposed to be representing.
    Is it supposed to be the Astra J, the generation that started in 2009, but the VXR version didn't come out until 2012 as seen here:

    In that case, then it'll probably need a year change.
    Or is it supposed to be the Astra H, the one that ran between 2005-2010 and the in-game year is its final year, as seen here:

    In that case, it'll need an image change because H and J looks different (obviously), and the in-game picture is the J.
    Furthermore, the Astra VXR in game also have 240 hp, which matches the output of the H, also as seen on the Parkers site:

    Tl;dr: the Astra VXR has an identity crisis and I dunno what it's supposed to be.
