    the fancy R-design is quite nice. but you could put that sort of money to better use IMO.

    Give me a VXR any day of the week. Never really liked volvo's, hes 19 not 60 and the back of it is shit as well. definately needs an astra. hes sitting next to me so please be as harsh about the car as possible.

    C30 is a nice bit of kit. Worth remembering that the new Astra is due out shortly as well.

    My brother is going to be getting a Black C30 with the R-Design kit on, not until November though. They do look pretty sweet.

    He's been getting loads of detailing kit for it too like a foam lance, which I'm going to let him test on my car first
