    I would have thought so Mate. May be wrong , but it is a smaller type of vehicle isnt it .

    Try tescos for your insurance , they saved us shed loads of money when we had a private car .

    Try looking out for an SRi diesel if you want the show without the insurance cost etc, plus more mpg will offset higher premiums, I'm sure the B was done as an SRiD, might be a 2.2 though and only as a facelift. 99 - 02.

    B 2.2 Diesel SRi are £3k plus.

    Just been looking for the missus mother for a B and the cheap ones are normally a crack of $hit.

    Ended up getting a Seat Cordoba 1.6 and it is a cracking car. HUGE boot.

    Astra Estates are from Group 4 for the pretty pathetic 1.6 8v, through to Gorup 8 or 9 for the 2.0DTi which are more than adequate. I'm pulling over 40mpg in the city with my DTi too.
