    no no you misunderstand me I know its just a two-tone astra, its just the light bottom half dark top half made it jump out at me - I was looking at a whole page of two-tone astra's at the time

    just struck me that it was similar thats all, bearing in mind the splash that the paintjob made across the UK scene last year on a certain mk5, and that one's seemingly an older pic and still a UK car
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    That was done ages ago, Dans car, dont think hes on here, hes from cardiff, it was that colour when i had a mini and that was 2 cars ago! That pic is the Welsh motor show, we're talking summer 06. Stunning car by all accounts, its currently brown and white and has a new owner again in cardiff.

    Dan is a mamber on here, pics have been up a few times in the various builds (forgot his username though).

    the red and cream two tone is a classic combination and has been done hundreds of times, neither car was the first or the last
