    anyone else get bored after a week with their astra?

    i bought a 1.8 astra sport about 2 months back, and im already bored of the power... mostly my own fault as im always out with my mate in his mr2 turbo.. and go to the jap meet at warrington... but has anyone else felt the same after buying one of the non turbo astras? if you get any jap car infront of you they pull away from you like theyre in a rocket and your in a micra ive got absolutely hooked on the jap cars now and have been looking at mr2 turbos recently - cant insure one to save my life but no harm in looking. anyone else had the same thoughts regarding their astra?

    Yeah, but I will usually drive miss disy for a few days then unleash the power again.

    Or drive the wife's 1.2 for a few days.

    The grass is always greener for me. I get bored of most things.

    Everyone gets bored of their power, and unless u can afford a McLaren F1, Ferrari Enzo or summet equally crazy then you'll always want more.

    As long as I have a car that allows me to overtake safely and get me from A to B reliably, then that'll do.

    Buy the best car that you can afford and upgrade each part as and when you cn afford it thus changing the car effectivly slowly but surely to what you want it to be like










    OR just buy a TT roadster you'll always see me smiling in that car!!!!

    I am one who has actually downgraded in cars and changed to a different brand altogether. Started with 131bhp > 195bhp > 197bhp > 202bhp > 82bhp

    I still long for power sometimes, but the thought of having money to spare and the miles I can do on one tank, being down on bhp it not really a concern anymore
