    I have ordered mine, and i guess it will be built there, in Ellesmere. I would love to have a tour while the cars are being manufactured.

    I ordered 1.4 Turbo, Sport Edition with Flexride as standard. I don't have a delivery date yet, but only an estimation. The salesman told me that probably it will arrive at the end of February (Greece). I hope it will be sooner rather than later

    I'm very excited about this car. Gadgets, engine, power, consumption, looks. Everything is good as far as i read over the net. I can't wait to drive it. The colour is black.

    I checked the vin information and it seems that my astra (it's an Opel) has been built in Polland instead of Ellesmere. I don't know if that is good or not.
    So, does the place that a car is built makes a difference? What do you think?

    Astra's for CEE (Central and Eastern Europe) are always made in Poland.
    As for the built quality - there should be no difference...
