    New Astra (oh yes)

    our dealership took delivery today of two brand spanking new shape astra's

    1st in silver (surpise) and the other in blue which is the 1.8 version

    took the 1.8 out for a drive and i must say im really impressed with it, tested out the sport button to change the handling and it brought a smile to my face, if this is anything to go by then roll on the gsi version :P

    there are pics of the VXR one (apparently) in auto express this week...looks great

    Bit of a shame we will have to wait a while for the 3 door...but I love them glad to hear they drive nice as well.

    We will be changing sarahs car the start of next year.....we will consider the astra but I think the mk5 golf will get the vote ops:

    Had a look over a MK5 Club today as well.
    Nice dash and small steering wheel. Also liked the chrome detailing around exterior lights and side repeators. And it's not that much bigger than the MK4.
    Do prefer the more ridged lines of the MK4 though.

    Wished I'd asked for a courtesy car when I bring mine in on Monday for a 6000 oil change!! I'm sure you could have 'arranged' something for me.

    There seem to be build quality "issues" with the latest Golf. Lots of complaints about the trim from people I know who own them.

    re: New Astra (oh yes)

    Had a look at the new astra today while i was up at my local Vaux dealer lookin at the vectra sri. Have to say, i do like the astra a lot, and think it will be very popular. Got a brochure, and the SRi looks really smart with the 18's and extras etc on.
