Astra Sports Tourer SRi 2015

Afternoon all

Having had to give my company van back and getting new job without a vehicle we had to try to find something suitable....... after a long week of looking and trying everything from cheap to brand new Iíve finally signed to paperwork for a 2015 Astra Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi SRi itís black metallic and has a few extras fitted on top of the very high spec and has approximately 59000 on the clock, most importantly it does 70+mpg and ids free to tax

Should be picking it up next Thursday, but for the time being hereís a couple of photos I took after the test drive.





The plan is to give it a quick go over with the DA to make it sparkle and give it a couple of coats of wax to get it through winter

To be fair it was in really good condition, and seems to be in really well looked after which is why I picked this over a newer focus. Can’t wait now till Thursday when I can give it a proper deep clean along with going for a decent drive.

Just been on eBay and picked up a few Vauxhall related parts just to add my touch to it when it arrives.

Thanks.

I got some irmscher number plate holders, key ring and wheel valve dust caps and also some pressed number plates although can’t get them yet as don’t want to tempt fate and jinx it, figured I can use the other bits for the Corsa if this falls through.
Need to figure out what colour it is as I want to get a touch kit for any stone chips I might find (found one earlier but it had been touched up already).

Lovely Jubbly, why people buy SUV cars I just cant figure out, estates are way more practical, no need to haul bags of shopping waste high and they have so much room in. Looking forward to the updates, I guess you'll be using some Adams products.
