    Default Falling out of love

    I remember my first test drive in a C. My 2.2 sri that I bought. I had a VTR at the time and first impressions were how huge it was. It felt like an omega inside. It was quiet, refined and very smooth. Hence why I came away with it.

    Now on my second C and a little more refined. Heated leather, climate control etc all do their bit for making it a nice place to be. You quickly become used to the size of the car and are soon chucking it around like a hot hatch. Then you start getting a little bored. You want something faster, smoother, quieter etc.

    I went the opposite way and bought a 10yr old Astra GSi as a run about. She sat there, her flame red paintwork setting my heart on fire. The skirts she was wearing raising my blood pressure. I couldnít resist her. I wanted her, right there.
    But all was not as it seemed. Kinda like ending up in bed with a ladyboy, jumping from the vectra into the Astra was like shoving a load of gravel down my pants, sticking my head next to some road works and sitting in a green house in baking hot sun. Its not very comfortable put it that way. But over the last two weeks ive become used to it. Its really grown on me now and I find myself nipping out on an evening once its cooled down to lovingly go over it with some Quick detailer. The vectra doesnít interest me anymore. Ive got a new love. Shes hot, sporty and makes me feel young again.

    Then I had to nip out in the vectra at the weekend. Iíd forgotten how quiet she is. Even the clatter of the diesel is quieter inside than my petrol gsi. The climate control had soon cooled the air down and mopped my brow, the cd payer playing crystal clear red hot chilli peppers. The steering was light and comfortable and I didnít feel claustrophobic. I love my Vectra again. Its easy to get tempted by a hot sporty thing but you cant beat the loving attentions of your true love

    (before you ask, no I havenít been smoking anything)
