On the M1 northbound on Tuesday evening I came across 2 different but very nice mk3 astras, and had some nice convoy action with both of them for a while.

The first one was a lovely white M reg cabriolet, which definitely had a bit of oomph - interested to know what engine was in that, an absolute stunner, didn't look modified, just nice and clean.

The second one, later on and further north, was a red S reg mk3 (yes, that is S reg - the last mk3's were on an R reg, so it must have been a late registered surplus stock one) Also with a good bit of poke under the bonnet, but don't know what engine it had.

I was in a blue mk3 five door with GSi body kit, angel eyes and crystal rear lights, badged "GLSRI" on the boot:
