    Default Without my car for a week!!!

    I dropped my car off at the bodyshop yesterday to have the bumpers re-painted as the colour was not quite right.

    But have a stock of goodies in the garage waiting to be fitted next week end.

    But I have a nice Courtesay car, a brand new Astra TwinTop Design!! With Plus pack and 1.9 CDTi 150!! Well smart I can tell you, really tempted to trade the Vectra for one next time round!!

    Heres a couple of pics :-

    It is almost as quick as my Vectra with it's re-map, so the Astra TT must be pretty rapid if the map is installed!!!

    They are a little quieter than the Vectra with the roof up, but on the whole they are brilliant, a little smaller inside but it is an Astra after all.

    They also handle very well for a drop top!

    I would give it 8/10, mainly because the boot is not huge with the top down, but if this does not bother you then it's not a negative.

    I was offered there new 280PS vectra VXr with 16 miles on the clock!!! but as I have to do about 1000 miles this week, the VXR was not the best idea!!

    I have done 400 miles today, mainly with the top down If you have the heaters on and the windows up, it is pretty warm in there.

    But after doing the miles today, my only problem with it is the size of the fuel tank, 386 miles on a tank full, but it only cost me just now £39.80 to fill up, so I think the tank is pretty small compared to the Vectra.
