    Ordering VXR

    Went down my local dealers yesterday to see about putting in an order for a new VXR Astra when it becomes available and got told no one is taking orders as yet, why not call back in April when the Sport hatch becomes out!!
    Thing is a few people on this site have already said that they have been allowed to place an order for a VXR Astra months ago!! Do you think the dealer is not clued up and that I should visit another dealer?

    Probably a case of dealers taking deposits, and ordering as soon as they can....so as not to lose the sale.

    Don't see any harm in that, except maybe you losing possible interest that the deposit could be earning sitting in your account !.

    They may have taken deposits for a VXR but as yet you cannot actually order a car as the order banks for the VXR havent been opened, and an official launch date hasnt been set for the car (there isnt even a definate price as yet).......anyone placing a deposit already would do better to wait until the cars can actually be ordred

    Which one (Chester or Ellesmere Port) do you recommend as my car need a service soon?

    Ellesmere Port sales and Network Q it took three attempts for me to get a car. The first one was sold even though it was on the system, the second one turned up after a 2 week wait and was an automatic, the third one turned up and had the wrong colour roof, but it looked good so I bought it. In the end I got a better car for my money but it was no an easy purchase and you need to be willing to haggle.
