    Default Finally arrived!!!

    Well, the car has been here since Wednesday, and its HUUUUGGGGEEEEEE!

    Love the colour, love the comfort, love the relaxed torquey motor (coming from a 1.8). I do like its effortless cruising ability, motorways are now something to look forward to rather than hate. I find about 2500rpm in 6th feels nice

    Today it had a little job to do, so here are some photos (better ones to come when I get a chance to get some decent shots of it):

    yeah its Misty Grey, love the colour, it changes depending on the light conditions.

    One thing I am amazed at is the rear legroom compared with a hatch! Its got about 3-4" more, wasn't expecting that, then you have a 3 mile deep boot as well!

    400 mile in and I love it. Kinda want to do some long haul runs to see how it does, can't seem to get the hang of a car doing less than 2,000 rpm at 70mph.
    Its also nice to have cruise control back after having an Astra for nearly two months, I never realised how much I used it until it was gone.

    Very Nice but its actualy a 1.9 CDTi - not a 1.8 as youve stated mate, unless vauxhall have put the wrong badge on it which wouldnt surprise me.
