I'm going to have to get rid of my K, they're just far too common ;)

I saw three yesterday, the first one was a black Elite that I think I've seen about before, ut was parked next door to a house I was delivering to. Then later on I was stuck in a traffic jam and a Deep Sky Blue one came past me, then on my way home from work another Power red one came past me on the A17.

Its an Opel/Vauxhall... What do u expect? :D u can always go for Alfa Romeo to stand out :)
When I had my last Alfa 156 I used to pass an identical model every morning. If I want to stand out I'll drive the 73 Manta or 74 Viva.

Obviously the new Astra is going to be a very common car, in fact I've been surprised by how few I've seen so far, but I know some people on here haven't seen any on the roads so I thought having seen three in one day was worth commenting on.

Still not seen a single Astra K (apart from mine), despite looking out for them since December.

If I hadn't found this forum I'd be convinced I was the only one on the road.

In fact, I'm beginning to wonder if any of you are genuine customers or whether you all just work for Vauxhall's marketing department... ;)

And 156 still looks good despite it's years ;) My sis just traded her 147 to Giulietta quadrifoglio verde and i'm playing with an idea to blindly pre-order Giulia Guadrifoglio verde, since they will only be shipping them from 2017 in here and dealership has a very very tempting price for 61k eur for a full spec car with 8c red color (15k eur discount) :D

I can pretty much guarantee Kristis doesn't work for GM marketing ;)

The 156 looks great, has a fantastic interior (although the Momo seats aren't the most comfortable), and drives well. Just a pity they corrode underneath so badly, and eat suspension components regularly.
