    I Saw 1 (well 3)

    I saw the new astra today up at my local dealer garage.. i had to drop my van in for an M.O.T and there were 2 in the showroom and 1 outside been used as a demo car.

    definatly better when u see them in person, really wanting me 1.. the interior is beautiful aswell.. cant wait for the 3-door and vxr

    i've not seen one on the road yet but the garage where my vans at is letting the demo car out on 24hr test drives so im planning to book myself in for it to see what i think and whether to hold out for the 3door or go for a mark 5 as my next car

    well my uncle works for a dealer garage near me and i've 'conned' him into a 48hr test drive of the 5 door he's got at his place so i'll have to book it and report back. but at the min im either hoping to get a mk5 150cdti or 888 or hold out for a mk6 3door when they come out but once i get it i'll let you know what i think. i've already drove 4 mk4's and 2 mk 5s so got a good comparison of specs
