    Test drove a lotus ellise.....

    Test drove a lotus ellise yesterday as i was thinking of getting one or a VX220 but after driving it and getting back in the astra i know i will be keeping the astra for sure.

    The lotus was alot of fun just like driving a Go-Kart but when it came to getting in the car it was hard work and even worse getting out with it being so low. Theres no way u can look good while getting out lol

    Also it didnt seem as quick as i expected as its only a 1.8 with 118bhp

    Still might have to test drive the VX220 just for fun tho

    So now my mind at rest and feeling even more happy with my Astra i cant wait for august to really start the modding

    Good choice... i always think of lotus being girls cars... they're too small for men
