    Default True Extent Of Vaux Penny Pinching

    was going through the car docs earlier, for both the Vec and my mk3 astra, when I realised they have even different leather wallets for the owners manual, service book, etc.

    the mk3 astra wallet has a metal vauxhall badge with the badge coloured red and made of a half decent leather and has a button on it like a purse has for keeping it closed, the vectra has this really cheap feeling fake leather one, with no button stud for holding it closed and the badge was simply recessed into the fake leather the same as the VAUXHALL writing.

    must have saved them all of about 2p that really takes the pi55 tbh, how much lower are they gonna stoop, they start making cars up to german quality standards then P off potential buyers with their penny pinching.

    another thing, how petty is deleting the 3rd/centre rear head rest of the standard spec when it was on all cars up to 54 plate, they did it with the mk4 astra from 52 plate onwards and there an option on the mk5.

    All manufacturers are doing it, my cousin has a Mondeo ST TDCi which is a very nice car indeed, but his previous Mondeo GLX I think it was had much more of the 'standard' type features you expect to find.

    The ST is quite sparten!!!

    The shocker for me is the autodip mirror, for me it is a feature I am going to miss as it is very useful, looking at a Vec vxr and it hasn`t even got one, a 26k car ffs ....
