    Stebbings (where I got my 6 month old CDTI SRI 150 for £8999) have one - 2008, 49,680 miles, glass roof at £8499 - so sounds like a good price

    Theres also a 58 plate for £7000..... seems to be a bit of finger in air with prices.


    It also seems to be holding value better than a 150 CDTI Vectra SRI .. is this right?!!?!?

    I have found that the Astra and Vectra return almost identical economy in real life driving and the Astra is a good bit smaller inside. Going to face identical issues to the Vectra too I have to add.

    ok guys a bit annoyed, she took the car for a test drive and it drives well, picks away fast and accelerates fast, now i know it's a lighter car compared to the vec but she has drove my vec and commented how slow it is picking away, dangerous she mentioned and is taking great glee in the fact that she will beat my ass in a race, not feeling very manly at the min, same engine and bhp but she will pick away a lot quicker, is it worth giving the air intake a blast of carb cleaner and giving the egr a good hammering to loosten any crap, can i use just standard carb cleaner or does it have to be the expencive 10k boost stuff, for the weight diff there shouldn't be such a diff in takeoff.
