    You've got your maths wrong there fella, that's more than a Mercedes S-Class weighs.

    I have an Astra Sports Tourer Exclusive and think its one hell of a car.......
    Very comfy, Very refined, and handles extremely well. Im 6'2" and find all the dials are easy to see. Only downfall is the claimed MPG figures. Its supposed to be 64mpg bot not seen over 54mpg (this is fully laiden though) BUT i would expect to see top figures after 50K on the clock (1.7cdti).

    As for headlights......They are better than my Astra H i had before hand so cant complain.


    Oh and listed weight for mine is between 1550kg and 1700kg (depending on spec)...a high spec Vec C 1.9 cdti 150 is about 1400kg
