    Post More Pics of m 07 Astra TwinTop 1.8 Design + road trip details

    im gonna put all the pics of my TT here.




























    did 1127 miles in 2 weeks on my road trip round wales/ireland (1st->12th sept)
    approx £130 petrol
    hit highest speed of 130mph with it at 6,000 revs (needle just before red section) (sport mode on)
    Avg speed on fast roads (80-100) excluding traffic situations.
    Avg Speed on normal roads (30-40)
    not too much city driving, only around 50 miles or so..
    lots of mountain driving. handled lovely on the mountain roads.
    (top photos takes in the mountains around [Rhiwargor - snowdonia])

    any more info, just ask.

    Very nice car there mate, like the piano black centre console, the Design is one of the nicest Astra variants imo.

    However I think there will be more than a few people (including me) who will let you know that driving at those sorts of speeds on our roads is just crazy

    I dont drive at mad speeds, just tested the car out on a very nice piece of motorway with not another car in miles...

    im a very very safe driver, and when there is any other car on the road I am very careful,
