    I am looking at changing cars myself, my daughter has an Astra H 1.6 design, this is a cracking car. Goes well, but for me just a bit to small.

    Missus has a sportshatch and it's a great car. Road holding is much better than my old Vec. (both cars are/were 57 plate SRis) and it's generally much more poised on the road.

    Downside is it's noisier inside and obviously has less room than the Vectra did. On long cruises we always used the Vec. but for around town we normally took the Astra.

    Hers is the 1.8 petrol but I drove a few 1.9 cdtis as hire cars and they were like pocket rocket ships. I was very impressed with them and they certainly seemed as quick as my old car with was a 1.9 cdti too.

    Her car also had Aux input as standard with the CD30 mp3 wheres as I had to Spec. the CD70 to get Aux in on mine.

    I read on the Astra forums that CC can be fitted but it's not something we bothered with. She is about to change it for the new Meriva but I would have had another one no problem.
