    Well not sure, was following a 55 plate ASH a month or so back and went under a bridge and the lights came on, so guessing that had the Auto headlights on.

    My dad had astra hire car last week, was also the 'Design' and also had the auto headlights on, very impressive. Was the first time I had sat in the new astra and really like it, except for the fact it didnt have the drinks holder in the door cards no more or the little cubby under the drivers footwell!!

    I wouldnt have thought the Auto gadget would be an optional extra (may be wrong) perhaps it is dependent on the model?!

    Yep, they come fully loaded. Only things that's are missing from mine are DAB, Satnav and cruise control.

    Design comes with light and sight pack as standard.

    You get, rain sensours, auto headlights and auto dipping rear view mirror. Option on sxi and sri for Ł150 IIRC.

    Aswell as the half leathers. I really would chose a design over SRI just for the extra goodies. You still get the funky sport button too.

    You got a diesel?

    IIRC all you need to get CC is the indicator stalk and a tech2 reprogram to enable it in the oil burner engines. Different with petrol though.

    I was quite suprised how well specced the Design was - Sight and light pack is cool and the half leather seats are a bonus (and very comfy).
    Also get a sport pack on the top line models - Lowered, 17" alloys, sports button. Then there's the blacked out rear windows, etc, all making it a hell of a package.
    Ex Golf R32, now mk5 Astra Estate 1.9CDTi (150PS, 232ftlb) Design on fat alloys.

    Ditto, an Astra Design with the sports pack and xp pack....in Estate format, unrivals any other model IMHO other than the VXR.

    If I had the budget, I'd have added sports pack and xp kit to mine.

    Choice estate is the 150bhp 1.9 CDTi estate. In Ultra Blue, with sports pack, xp kit and sat nav. Would look bloody lovely.

    Skót, mine's 1.7 diesel. No powerhouse, but a big improvement over the utterly pathetic 1.7 DTi unit in the MK4.
