As some may have seen, I recently got a BMW 840. Things are going great with that but due to the nature of the car I was looking for I wanted to get it before I sold my Astra as it may have taken a very long time for the right one to come along.
Then the bottom falls out of the used car market... I've got the 8 series but haven't had much interest in the Astra.
Now I could further reduce the price of the Astra just to get shot but to be honest I'm not really sure how much that's going to help and with temporary insurance and listing costs I've spent almost £200 on keeping the Astra so far.
I guess my other option is to try to trade it in against something that's nice and cheap to run but then I'd imagine I'd get a pretty crappy trade-in price. If I did get another car I could whack the BMW on a very low mileage policy and use the other car for work etc.
