Darkmoon Blue?

Post by RobO » Tue Feb 06, 2018 3:52 pm

Hi,

Thinking of upgrading my 1.4T astra to the 1.6T in Darkmoon Blue - does anyone have any pictures of the colour on an astra? Seen a sample in the showroom but hard to visualise on the car!

How does the car cope with the extra power - wheel spin, actual mpg etc? Wish they made this in a 4wd :cry:

Cheers

Can’t help with the colour unfortunately but, never had mine wheelspin at all, but then I haven’t pushed it too hard.

MPG-wise, I have driven mine mainly around town and a couple short motorway journeys over the last 1,400 miles and it’s currently averaging at 35.4 (according to the car), so possibly slightly less. Which I think is pretty reasonable considering it’s mainly town driving, and I very rarely use the Stop Start Technology.

Hope this helps!

Hi, new to the forum.

I get my new Astra Sports Tourer in Darkmoon Blue this Friday, so if you can wait a couple of days, I’ll take some pictures for you.

I would like to see that too. I was wondering about that color. Finally picked the cosmic great and it suits the car unbelievably

I’m looking forward to it, and was told that the color was made for the Insignia, so they would stand out, parked next to all the Audi’s and BMW’s in black. I’ll post some pictures Friday, when I get the car - let’s hope for some sunshine then. Not to likely here in Denmark this time of year, though :)

As promised, here are some pictures of my new car. I absolutely love the color! Unfortunately the light wasn’t the best, so the pictures doesn’t do it justice at all. Hope for some sun, then I will take some new ones. But the color is really deep, so much more than dark blue or black.

Also it should be one of the first in Denmark, in that color ;)

Thanks for all the replies and pictures. 35mpg isn't bad considering the jump in power from 1.4-1.6.

The colour looks really smart! You can see a tinge of blue in certain parts, which I'm sure is brought out even more when the sun's out! Looking forward to some more pictures :)

I'm test driving the 1.6T this week to see how it runs, then may make the decision to go new (darkmoon blue) or 2 yrs old(ish) and save a few pennies. Will post what deal I get etc as I've seen some people ask before...

Does anyone have any comments on any optional extras they did/did not take. Is there anything you feel is worthwhile?

I can see a slight blue hint in the paint below the rear lights... It is very faint but will be good to see in the sunshine...

The intellilux headlights (albeit the most expensive) are the best optional extra in my opinion, worth every penny and a lot of people who didn’t choose them, regret not choosing them. :lol:

I really like the AGR Sport Seats but then I have a bad back, and they offer a lot more support, so that’s personal presence I suppose.
