    My new Astra

    Okay it's not a Vauxhall, but it is an Astra, and well looking forward to putting a few k's on the clock this weekend. Here in Norway it's packaged as an Astra Sport (I guess equivalent spec to the SRI in the uk), 2.0 CDTI, Waterworld, 18inch alloys, AFL+, parking sensors, retracting mirrors, leather seats, flexride chassis, (detachable towbar, no I ain't a caravaner!, but a towbar comes in handy sometimes), and all for around 41 grand at today's exchange rate.

    I hope I've got the recipe correct for uploading these pics..

    Looks good mate. Colour is similar to my Petrol Blue vectra. Can't wait to pick up my SRi on 18's at the end of the months. Went for Iceberg pearlescent on mine.
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    cheers lads, they are a lovely car. I took to it first time I saw one displayed at Oslo airport when I flew back to uk last December.. but got a H as hire car at manchester(okay bog standard, but still), didn't really like it so was sceptical of choosing the Astra, but honestly - drove most cars in class, and the Astra is by far the best..

    Lovely looking motor do think waterworld suits the mk6 really well.

    Although I did spot one in Iceberg yesterday which also looked good
