    Default 2007 07 Astra SRi CDTI 150 XP

    Hi,

    I have spotted the above car in a ford dealership in Runcorn, Cheshire. Its the 5 door Astra in black and it looks the biz - I am going to have a look tomorrow!

    Will this be the same engine thats in the Vec? Has anyone had any experience of one of these cars?

    I love the size of the Vec and it has served me well over the past 18 months and wasnt even looking for a change, but this car does really look the dogs!

    I was thinking... (mine is 06 2.2 direct SRi)

    Say, £8500-9000 PX for mine, make the rest up in Cash from my savings and I wouldnt have to take out any further finance then when my loan is finished in Aug, replenish my savings acc... easy!!!

    Thumbs up

    Hi,

    Yep had one of these for 9months (55 Plate SRI XP in Black Sapph). Traded it in early 07 for a 150 Design Signum (Now gone).



    Good Points:

    Lightening Quick
    Handles really well
    Reliable
    Good fuel Consumption (Unless you fit a box!)
    Easy to Mod

    Bad Points:

    Common as muck
    Depreciation
    Seats cripple you (Cloth anyway)
    Lack of standard kit
    Lack of rear room & Boot isnt that big either

    All in all a good car. Dont be fooled by price - haggle like mad

    My advice:
    Find an XP Kitted Design Model instead - well specced car with the 150CDti. That way you get more kit, comfier seats and retain sports feel.

    Cheers, Matt

    Just been to look at the Astra, lovely looking car as I thought, but the salesman said mine is onyl worth £7995 and I said I only had mine and £2000, and they wouldn't do the deal.

    They've got my number so I may here from them if they change their mind...
