Had to get rid of my 04 2.2 SRi yesterday. Cant justify keeping it anymore for doing 25k a year with work . Had it for 2 1/2yr & done 60k happy miles. Bought it at 6mth old with only 1700miles on clock & it was good at everything really - blasting round country road near us, up & down motorways, nippy through towns & cities......boo hooooo
Anyway, traded it in for my 1st ever diesel. Yep its another Astra . Got a 4kmiles 56reg 150bhp Sri in black - wanted the ex pack but didnt have 1 available for right age mileage money etc. It seems to go well enough but doesnt feel sporty. Maybe thats me not use to driving a diesel and not getting the best out of it yet. Must admit though I like the in gear acceleration with the bags of torque. Anybody else got 1? What do you think of em?
