    my first ever astra

    how do folks i have just bought my first ever astra a 1.7 sri with xp kit and i must say i am very impressed. my car history involves tonnes of novas 2 seat ibizas which l loved and a misguided purchses of a vectra c which lasted 5 weeks before being swapped for an envelope full of cash from a polish builder. (clarkson was right they are awful) so after a car less period i stumbled upon the astra i was dubious after the vectra but it really is a cracking motor well built good handling and the sport button is good crack on the twisty roads.
