Just thought id post a message, finally after 2 years of hard work and saving i finally got the car ive always wanted, an Astra coupe 888, And ive been dying to tell someone ive got it. Picked it up from CD Bramall Network q dealer in Plymouth last Saturday and the drive back was awesome. I havent got any pictures of the beast yet as i have yet to get a digy camera. First impressions are just awesome, the performance is just WOW and the handling is wicked, it goes round bends just like you'd expect it to being developed by the 888 racing team. Awesome car to drive. The turbo power is all their, even in low revs and right through the rev range and gears, the car just goes like hell. Its a truly awesome car. I will never forget the first time i saw the car at the dealer, It was stunning. Ive never seen one properly before.
Anyways i will post pictures of the car when i get my camera, i still carnt beleive ive got one of those 888s sat on the drive. Its in fab condition, the last person that had it was a Lady owner and she has taken great care of it and its in immaculate condition. All the seats, interior are in top condition. Its got new Ferodo brakes and Michelin Pro Sport High performance tyres on. Its fully loaded.
I am so pleased with it and i am never parting with it. Havent driven it much due to the snow and salt on the roads i just dont want to spoil it. Its in the garage at the mo and its driving me crazy, i just want to be out in it. The looks i get when driving the car it seems everyone looks at it, its a real head turner. Im just amazed at the power you have at low revs and right through the range, its unbelivable, you can really tell that you are driving a special developed car.
The dealer which i got the car from have been great, they were very friendly and helfpul, they were fantastic in fact, This is my first car and i didnt now what to do really, they helped me get everything sorted and everything, Id recomend them to anyone. Really great people, They are CD Bramall , Network Q, Sutton Road , Plymouth, Id recomend them to anyone.
Anyways i will get a digy camera next and i will post some pics of the beast. I just carnt wait for this snow to clear. Its a car that makes you want to drive it all the time
