    things you notice with your astra

    every car has something that makes you think....um i wonder why it does that!

    mines it pulls better with say quarter to half throttle then it does three quarters to full throttle. strange to say the least!

    and for example when you need to pull out of a junction quickly so you give it some beans in first and try to change to second it doesnt wanna go in so you end up slowing down which defeats the object!

    so basicly the question is what have you noticed with your car??

    I've noticed, when dipsh*t chavs are walking in the middle of the road just beckoning you to run them over, a quick 5-6k RPM soon makes them shift So far I've only managed to clip 2 of them for not moving out of the way, I do wait a few seconds for them to move first though.

    LOL. That really f***s me off.

    I notice how when I accelerate every corner of the sodding dashboard vibrates like a barstuard.

    I've noticed that my LS doesnt look as good as it should, and this site doesnt help my mentality or wallet lol

    On a serious note, my astra drives like a Go-kart compared to my megane which is a tank..
