Hello from Darlington

Hi all,

Glad to be here.

Just took delivery of a 66 plate Astra K, Elite Nav 1.6 CDTi 136 Auto. Deep Sky Blue.

Park Assist pack, spare wheel, Intellilux lights. Not sure if she has any other optional extras - still having a good look :D

First time driving an auto but got used to it quickly. Can't believe the gadgets on the car. Did a little squee when testing out the auto park feature (which worked perfectly despite the snow today!). Auto box is nice and responsive - although the snow today scuppered a good old test of its capabilities!

I have a 70 mile round trip commute, into a city centre, and can't wait to have a more fun and comfy journey. 8-)

Hello and welcome!

I'm "just up the road" in Durham. :) Congrats on the new car. Sounds like a beauty! Get some pics up here when you get a chance so we can eye her up ;)

Hi Noctu, lovely car. I don’t envy your commute, I used to do a 30 mile round trip during rush hour everyday from Sunderland to Newcastle and that was enough for me 😳.
