Looks great mate. I sold on my Mk4 58 Mondeo Zetec last month and bought a 1.3 Astra J 61 Sports Tourer Estate. To say I miss the mondy is an understatement!

I had the Mk4 for over a year, during which it was used as a PH taxi - 77k miles on and no problems bar the odd fuel filter :D

There was one I saw today, a letter issued by the apparent Chubb Security company.

It was instructing folk NOT to give a courtesy flash to cars with no lights on in the night. Their reasoning being that the car with no lights on was loaded with gang members, apparently it is a gang initiation whereby they target the first person to flash them.

Facey..

It's a pain in the backside when you put a lot of effort, money and pride in to your car only to have some idiot ruin it.
I had, what I can only assume, a small stone thrown at my car on mischief night as I was driving past a park. Thankfully it missed the window, but left a horrible dent above the rear wheel arch. Needless to say I fume every time I look at it lol

I have had 4 Astra Estates (07+), found them to be very compact and timid. The front section used to do my head in, barely any room and both driver and passenger seat were on top of one another. I like my space and I like an arm rest.

Have also spent time in a '07 Vectra, space was the only pro for me. The nail in the coffin was when crossing a busy junction in rush hour, with customers, the steering wheel locked and caused me to mount a kerb. It only had 60thou on the clock and was regularly serviced.

Funnily enough this evening I had a run in with a young lad in a new shape Corsa. When entering the tunnel he flew up my backside, then he would repeatedly drop off and fly up behind me again. After I shown him my break lights, he undertook and decided to do it to a tranny van, only this time revving his engine to show off his loud exhaust.

Needless to say I gave him a w***** hand gesture at the toll.
