Well after a long wait for things to get sorted out, I've finally got my Astra.
It's a Mk5 '06 Plate 1.7 CDTi in Design trim and it's bloomin' luvverly.
I was a bit concerned that it would be a 'step down' from my previous car (55 plate Focus Zetec) but I think it's just as good so far. It certainly has more poke it seems despite the fact that on paper the Focus has higher performance (was the 1.8 TDCi)
All in all very pleased so far, only slight niggle is the BC functionality isn't there, but hey ho can get that seen to later!
One more thing, has anyone had it where the CD player seems to display song names a bit weird (mixing up letters and missing some out) or is it more likely the data on the CD is wrong?
