    take ya away from ya astra???

    simple question is there another car out there within a similar value that could take you way from ya astra???

    ie: astra gsi 6k(ruffly) so another car in that value generally is a civic type r or integra dc2! so could they tempt ya to part with your car?

    tell us what ya drive and what could part ya or even tempt ya from ya astra within a similar value!!

    i drive 106 gti and i dont think there another car out there similary priced that could tempt me away from it! i love it!

    I walked away from my Astra for an Insignia. :-)

    Got rid of my MK5 1.4 SXI astra(first car I ever had got it when I passed me test)
    After 1yr of having it, I upgraded to an Insignia. Not bad for my second car considering I've only been driving like a year and a half.

    I just got the 1.8 exclusive insignia. Was on a budget and only decided to buy the car coming back from lunch one day and the deal was done in about an 1 hour I got the car the next day.

    Although I have to admit I sure do miss my lovely 3 door red astra.
    (been contemplating selling the Insignia and buying a MK5 SRI 150.)
    If I had the money I'd buy a Red MK5 and keep the Insignia too! Gimmie a few years and I'm sue you will see me with a Red Astra + my Insignia.

    This is a funny question, as on pure monetary value, I could have quite a wide range of cars that would cost the same as I paid for my MK5 ASH.

    But for me it's about practicality and economy, whilst having peace of mind and still retaining some performance.

    I could have a boxster or a high-milage 911....


    hmmmm tempting!!
    1.9 cdti (120) black ASH
    Wanted: Black VXR Grille!!
