    Just got an astra

    ... just bought a 4 year old Astra Sport 1.8.. had a focus ST170 well actually had two of them and had nothing but problems..
    So I took them back and rushed out in a mad hurry to get a car before monday (work)... ended up with the astra... and I am well impressed.

    I've always liked the look of the astra, never driven one, never been in one, but I still bought it, anyway I bought it yesderday and collected it today, and when I got home I had a huge on my face.

    Its smooth, quiet, nippy (not too fast but good) gears change with ease!.

    compared to a focus, clunky gear changes, excessive wind noise, rattles, and general pool build quality, its excellent.

    The car does have a few scratches, etc.. but I like working on cars so I'll give me summit to do...

    I've been lucky really I've got an Astra and now I found this site!

    Mk3 astra = F finished production in 1998

    mk4 astra = G begung production in 1998

    mk5 astra = H etc etc

    all the europeans use letters for each generation of car, so we tend to as well.

    Welcome to your first of a long line of Vauxhalls.

    I've just bought my second Vx - after a long line of French crap I've owned in the past.
