    The trouble with Astras is...they get you nicked for speeding

    Well hereís the thing.....I have only had this Astra for a few weekís but oh my what a few weeks it has been. Last week I was informed I had been caught speeding 73 in a 60 limit much to the delight of my friends, who now think I belong in Asda or B&Q car park doing hand break turns and doughnuts (Iím 43). Whilst at the police station I scuffed the bumper (quoted £120 for repair). And whilst visiting the local market, I tore off the bumper (caught on a parking ledge), to which a group of teenagers came to my rescue (not the Astra driver parking next to me) and replaced it (they were fantastic. I wonder whatís next. So like a child learning to ride a bike Iím having parking sensors fitted (back and front next week. And Iím waiting for the pictures to confirm who was driving my car for the speeding conviction. But all in all I love this car itís smooth to drive, looks great and it turns heads. Let the adventure begin......

    sounds like your having a good week, these things tend to happen all at once...
    Astra: Drive it like you stole it.
