    What Astra to get??

    Well i have been saving for a good while, still puttin money away, and hoping to have about £4k by the summer!!

    was lookin around at focus', leons, BMWs etc but they either too expensive to buy or 2 much 2 insurance or just dont float me boat!

    Now im loving astra coupes, and it is the 1.8 i wud be after due to insurance and probz a pre 51reg one for the slightly cheaper tax, being an apprentice im not made of money.

    But then i would like a really nice hatch e.g 3 door, nice colour (blue, red etc), air con, cruise control, traction control, basically all the toys, and relatively decent mileage! again would probably be a 1.8!!

    I did have a cheeky look at some vectra's, but came to the conclusion they would be too big for what i need!!!

    Now do i go coupe route, or hatch route? im leaning more towards another hatch however much i like the coupe, because by the looks of it, i can get more car for me money with a hatch!!

    Decisions decisions!!!

    i'd have the 1.8 Sri all day.. probably because i own one like but ive never had a problem with it... only way i'd have a coupe is if i went for a 2.0 turbo or the 888 but apart from those.. the hatch all the way ... insurance aint too bad on 1 either to be honist...

    im 3 years driving. no ncd with my renewal last nov costin £850 and im in the final stages of my apprentishit aswell so i kno how u feelin

    From someone who has owned both - coupe all the way. They feel a bit more special/classy than the hatch (imo)

    ive had both a hatch and a coupe and would easily say the coupe was my favorite just being that if u mod it right u get the heads turning more than u would a hatch ,to me it seems every1 has a hatchback round my area. but the hatchback is also a nice car to drive, its completely up to you bud.
    dogs are for christmas ... Astras are for life !!!!
