    My new car

    Well,

    Not so new, but still my replacement for the Astra...I knew it would be quick...but for a big car it's so nimble and sharp...very impressed.

    What do you all think?

    Sorry for the pic quality, little brother's Nokia Phone





    One of the last ones made, latest spec...20k on the clock so it's as new.

    hmm well i picked it up yesterday afternoon...I was impressed with the acceleration straight off but didnt like the grandad looks...but it's totally grown on me since then...really like the xenons.

    But i still think my coupe looks so much nicer.

    Well I decided not to order a brand new car this year for various reasons and was given the opportunity to take a Reallocated car from the 'pool' list.

    But i basically had to take whatever was on the list the day it was updated as my car had hit it's mileage limit - my own fault for leaving it to the last minute!

    I do like the Civic Type R, but there seem to be so many more of them about than the Accord. And now after joining some of the forums - as u do I'm finding the ATR has a bit of a cult following. Plus as this one is already a 52reg, I only have to keep it a year. It was just a spur of the moment decision I think, on the day there were various Vectra's, Astra's, BMWs (but too high on personal contribution and Tax) and a few others, this just caught my eye.

    Gotta live with the choice now
