    Im new(be gentle)

    Hello there,im Tony from leicestershire and have just bought my first car,have not even passed my test yet,have a full bike licence and have been a biker for 10 years,it's a bit sad that i never took my car test years ago but i was more into bikes so i never botherd,got my test in 5 weeks,i have just purchased a vauxhall astra mk4 1.6 8V LS 51 plate,red,38000 miles,mint condition,£2800.I was shocked when i went to see it because the seller said it was in very very good condition which i took with an air of caution,but when i went to look at it i almost fell over,took a friend who know's alot about cars and he was speachless,something that does not happen often.He took it out for a test drive for me and came back with a smile on his face,he pulled me to one side and said if you don't buy it im going too,that's all i needed to hear,going to pick it up sunday or monday.
    Just spent the afternoon at halfords and other motoring shops buying car wash items,got the whole meguiar's range,clay kit,shampoo,wax,polish,detailing spray,wheel cleaner,metal cleaner,wash mits,sponge applicators,microfibre cloth's,and 2 buckets.my wife went balistic,spent nearly £150 just on cleaning products,some people may think im mad but i have seen my mates car after he has used meguiar's and his car looks better than new,anyway,sorry for such a long post im just excited,can't wait to pick my baby up and spoil her,hope i can be of help with anything else but car questions as i know nothing about them,YET.cheers.
