Post by steven2e0cnd » Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:56 pm

Hi Guys,

I've been around for a month or so and started posting a little more regularly so I thought i should say hello.

I have a Vauxhall Astra 1.4T 150 elite Sports Tourer on order in Rioja Red, The only option being Parking Sensors, that's due to be delivered a week on Monday. (18th)

It's my first new car and have previously had what can only be described as reliable bangers.. Absolutely buzzing. I Spent hours on this forum before i registered and must have just about every post...

Cheers

Steve

Good news!
Make sure you post a few pictures of it in daylight as it is a very nice colour, however its not available here in Germany.

Always good to see a colour 'in the flesh' I wouldn't buy a car without, which is why I ended up with Emerald instead of... brown!

I'm the same, although as per usual the showroom is slightly darker, so its difficult to judge the colour in direct sunlight.

it was a tossup between the Emerald Green and the red.
The only thing that put us towards Red was how black the Green looks sometimes and how rare the new colour is at the minute (Vane i know ;) ).

Both good reasons tp choose the way you did. I may well have gone with Rioja myself had it been available. Emerald though, is still quite a rare colour (not as rare as the browns though!)

Absolutely. I was lucky that there were 2 pre-owned Greens outside. And the browns are rare for a reason :lol: :lol: They're a bit to 1980's British Leyland for me :lol:
