Hi I'm Matt

I currently drive a 2.0 diesel white gtc but ordered the new Astra elite nav 1.4 (150) in black back at the beginning of September my dealer is hopeful for delivery before Christmas but said it could be January

4 months is a bit of a joke for a car being built in the uk but hey ho hopefully not much longer to wait

Test drove the 1.0 turbo Sri was very sluggish power wise compared to my gtc but was to be expected I guess but the 1.4 (150) should be a better match but was a very smooth drive just can't wait to get it now

Welcome along Matt, unfortunately it seems that sort of wait time is normal, I think the only advantage of a UK built car is it saves on transport time. It doesn't look like you get placed any further ahead in the queue and as the new Astra is proving popular it must be making quite a waiting list for everyone!

Still hopefully if it is pushed back until January the Christmas break will make the extra time pass a bit quicker for you....

What's made you switch from the GTC - need the rear doors now?

Only reason I decided to change is my current gtc is now three years old so was looking for something new anyway plus not doing the miles I was so don't need a diesel anymore and it's costing more to run what with mainly short distances now

Don't really need the rear doors as it's normally only me and possibly one passenger most of the time so wasn't a deciding factor but I must admit looking forward to all the gadgets in the new elite

When out with the other half and kids we take her mokka saves my car getting dirty :lol:

Great news, can't see the pic at the moment as my broadband's down and mobile internet's poor here. Will look again tomorrow.

Just seen the pic, looks great in black. Those alloys look like they'll be fiddly to clean though.
