Yes, Good for Vauxhall if it continues to survive abuse like that!
     We have an 11 plate 1.6 non-turbo SRI Astra and have never driven it hard (because it really is a fairly small engine in a big car and as a result - sluggish unless hammered) but was surprised/ disappointed to see the massive understeer on the TG track - not good! I am assuming the Techline does not have uprated suspension? Will be interesting to see how it progresses!
(Finger's crossed / be a good car! etc etc)

cheers, SD

Sod I forgot it was back on this week, I'll have to catch it tomorrow night. 

Was it a red Astra by any chance? Three of them went down our line one after another a couple of months back and we were told they were for Top Gear...we weren't sure if they were having us on or not!!! 

What's ironic was the fact that they told us they had to build them, get them over to Germany for tests and then back to the UK and handed over to the Top Gear peeps all within a month! Yet I ordered my Mokka in December and I'm not getting it until tomorrow! lol guess advertising on one of the biggest shows in the world takes 1st everything Big smile

As you live in Wishaw, or should I say Wishy, can I assume that you have been on the Buckie?
Would account for your comments about Top Gear. My heroes!!
Only joking about the Buckie. However, I have to confess that I am a Top Gear fan.

Mod edit: moderate your language please.
