Hello to all,
I have literally joined this site less than 1 minute ago, and as yet, do not actually own an Astra.
The reasoning for my premature posting is i would like to ask you all where the best place to buy 1 would be.
I am 21, i live in Gosport. I am eyeing up the 1.6 SXi 5d or the 1.6 Club, i have to say i much prefer the wheels on the SXi (a rather shallow reason i know)
Now, obviously, my nearest place would be Inchcape on newgate lane, but having noticing the many other Vauxhall dealers in the area, i wondered which are best.
Along with Inchcape there is 1 in Pompey, Southampton, Chandlers Ford, Basingstoke etc etc, the list goes on.
I was highly tempted to check out Hartwell in Southampton, as going on autotrader searches, they are consistantly the cheapest around, however, in 5 minutes of being on these boards, i was reading negative comments about them.
Im not after a "New" car, but more of a "New Used" car, something around the 06 plate. It seems more than possible to pic these up for 9k or less.
One last thing, i was contemplating reverse parking sensors and cruise control for it, does anyone have these fitted to their cars?? Are they any good (On Astra's obviously). Also, what is a realistic amount to pay for these. The fella at inchcape "roughly" quoted the cruise control as £300, but in the same breath boasted how it was no more than changing the lever and re-programming the ECU.......£300!!!! Gotta be a wind up!!!!
Thanks for any replies in advance, and i hope to be drving around in my astra soon!!!
