    drove the astra in the rain

    sorry if this is a stupiud post but i drove the sxi for the first time in very wet conditions and it seems alot more comfortable and solid then my mk3 sport.

    it does tend to lose grip if you arn't carefull but overall it feels much better and the windows dont steram up unlike the mk3

    Yeah, there's a world of difference there. My folks have a mk 3 and I drive is sometimes and I'm always surprised at how weird it feels.

    My windows do tend to fog up occasionally though :x

    ops: I of course meant to say, that occasionally my windows seem to fog up while driving and driving only, for no apparent reason, of their own accord, with no external or internal influences other than the weather... and nothing else. :P

    There now that's that sorted

    mine is on michelins so dont think it can be the tyres.

    it does like to wheel spin even if i give it a bit of umph at junctions.

    can be rather fun though

    I never get fogging ,
    I keep the fan on position 1, and on windscreen and feet.

    Always works.
