    Thumbs up Who else is getting regular random folk come and comment on there car?

    Hi, since I've had my car I've done all the usual mods plus a few of my own, now recently it seems I cant go anywhere without random folk come up and comment on my car! Be it filling up in the petrol station, sitting at lights, carparks, even the doctors surgery! seems just about everywhere. People are just plain nosey but its a great feelin none the less that folk comment and notice it. To add as well it's not little saxo drivers either it seems to be the more mature breed of people.

    So just wondering what sort of comments and strange Places people have acosted you about your car

    I've had bogans ask what V8 my cars running.
    I've had German tourists ask why I would choose a Vectra over a Holden Commodore.
    I've had an old Woman randomly take a photo of the car in a car park with her husband standing next to it.
    I've had mechanics telling me to not bother them again as they HATE servicing Vectras.
    "Why are you driving a grandpa car when your only 21?"
    "Nice cereal box car, why don't you get a proper sized car?"
    "Nice Astra F@%$&^"
    "How much was it to import?"
    "Why is your nissan badge all crooked?"

    Then theres the copious looks of "WTF is that?" when driving next to someone.

    Maybe it's a stupid question but weren't Vectras sold in Australia?

    Only 2 people commented on my Signum - someone hit me in the rear and the collection driver from the bodyshop said "Lovely car mate, really is"; a week later his colleague dropped the repaired car back and said "Beautiful car mate, beautiful car, beautiful car, beautiful car......" lol

    I've had a few comments saying how nice the car is, but the main ones are usually = "is it an import" " Never Heard of a Signum" Lol.

    I had a Subaru owner come over to me in the Nurburgring Car Park and wanted to know what was under the bonnet (after blasting past him on lap)

    I had Total Vauxhall Magazine approach me for a feature at Irmscher HQ in Germany 2007.

    Loads of people chatting in petrol stations, including the garage employees (one thought my car was the brand new model a few weeks back) - lol

    I had one woman run out of her house on a rainy day and jump in the passenger seat.... thought it was a taxi when I pulled up and pipped my horn for my mate... I kid you not !!
