    My New Sri Sporthatch

    Now the car is home and I can get my hands on it, heres a few pics, and it's now done 550 miles!!

    The black 'V' Grill is only tempory, until my Glacier white 'V' turns up, just could not live with the chrome original!!!








    As I cleaned both cars on Sunday morning, heres a few of my other car, which is now the family wagon, and is the Zafira GSi replacement!!!

    Our Freelander 2 HSE




    One of things on my list of 'To Do's on the Astra is to fit the colour screen as used on the CD70, I think this will make a nice interior upgrade.

    Both are lush. My only reservation being the interior colour of the freelander, personal taste

    That was our concern at first, but it looks way better in the flesh, the only other option when we specced it was black, and that looked horrible!!!

    really? I'd have thought black would be the way forward there. I know what you mean about tan / beige looking better in the flesh, they normally do!

    A member of another forum I'm on has just bought a new car, dark grey with tan leather - looks wrong in the pics but everyone that has seen it loves it. So I kind of get what you mean

    back on track though, loving the astra. White - excellent choice dear sir! I want!

    I like it as well, but a friend of mine has a white Sporthatch SRi XP and he has done his black, If the white one doe not look right, at least I can swap it back
