    Default Buying a Brand New Vauxhall - Places?

    Looking at buying a brand new Vauxhall shortly. BUT some prices coming back are stupid, seeing as they lose so much in first year. I want a few choice extras so need to do a factory order.

    Anywhere I can import one from Belgium or anything?

    Thanks

    Why not buy one 6-12 months old that way you dont lose the big amount in the first year plus you will probably get a low mileage example for a lot less than you would ne, mine was just a year old when i got with 9000 miles on and was over 7k cheaper than if i had bought it new

    Current exchange rates mean it just isn't worth importing these days..plus it will make it more difficult to sell on.

    Try some of the bigger internet brokers.

    NI cars? Don't care if it is an Opel Import at all. Will be debadged anyway!

    Reason I can't buy used is I want the following minimum:

    Astra 1.9 CDTi Design 150bhp
    - Panoramic Roof
    - Keyless Go
    - VXR Styling Pack
    - Sat Nav
    - AFL

    So can't buy a used one if you see what I mean. For some reason all Panoramic roof ones are 1.6 or 1.8 litre engines. If I do this route I am thinking I only want the 16v diesel engine.

    Cheers everyone

    Robbie - Sounds about right mate, is the adaptive suspension worth it though? Cos it is getting removed immediately anyway
