    I have seen four that stick in my mind driving around Sheffield/Rotherham:

    - Black Coupe, with black rims with silver edge, and tints that I have seen in Meadowhall and rolling around Norfolk Park
    - Blue 3 door, with tints, clear rear lights and colour coding knocking around Norfolk Park
    - Orange (Focus ST) 3 door (If i recall correctly) hammering over the roundabout at Junction 1 M18
    - A red 3 door with very shiny rims (I think this got sold/stripped on ebay in recent months)

    Also spotted a Silver MK4 3 door with a nice kit going along the M1 past Parkway exit (32?) on my way home the other day, didn't get a good look for reg. since I was overtaking and trying to avoid being rear ended by a large white panel van!

    I've been suprised as well by the number of Astra's in and around Sheffield in the past 12 months. When I got mine 3 years ago, I never saw that many, and now there seem to be loads.

    Anyone seen the blue GSI which is just off Manor Top along the side of the tram tracks just down from Summerfield?

    Wont see me toddling about Roth during rush hours in mine....got a works van at moment.
    Didn't see the Slimworx van did you pal? Smoothed Bonnet?

    Most likely see mine during weekends or late at night, Red Coupe Turbo with tints.

    Could probably make a mini meet somewhere knowing that theres this many astras in and around the area now.

    That sounds like a good idea, would be nice to actually take a closer look at all the nice Astras bobbing around
