This is the 3rd one I've had and even after just one day I'm really impressed, once I work out all the screens etc it will be even better.

 

Had posted in the Car Advice thread about thinking of trading in my '15 plate astra but seems a bit more appropriate in this thread now, wooo!

It was pretty much only Astra estate's coming up when I did a wee search with my criteria/pricerange recently, but I saw one that caught my eye and went through with it a couple of weeks ago.

Now proudly own a (*alan partridge voice* WhatCar 2016 car of the year) '17 plate Astra 1.6 SRi turbocharged petrol estate "sports tourer"... with a rather noice 197 horsepower - I make that more than my last two motors had combined, ha! Last one was just the entry level design model so going up to the SRi trim and the newer version has been utterly fantastic so far. Still taking a little getting used to things like being able to go in 5th gear at 30mph with just light touches of the accelerator and having a high gear selection even up pretty steep inclines, the thing feels like it has some amount of torque on it. 

edit: also had a bit of a 'mare on my first day with it, was wondering why the revs looked a little bit high when I had it in cruise control on the A82... then I remembered it was a 6 gear not a 5 gear. :lol: first ever 6 speed gearbox so need to get used to it I s'pose!

I would have looked at a Focus ST Estate or indeed a Leon if there were any in the pricerange tbf, but nonetheless I love the damn thing already :wub: 

There is an element of

about it at the moment but I got a lot more for the old car on the trade in than a quick autotrader check online said the average would be.

Looks smashing in the driveway at least...

Just need all this Covid shite to f**k off forever and then I can get some enjoyment out of it, but on the bright side the mileage should be nice n' low for the next few months.

Been sick for about a month, but it's not the Coronaingvirus. Got a test a few weeks ago; turned out to be the flu. Went downhill again last week with new symptoms, so got another test in case I'd got the Covid on top of flu, but it's not that.

Still getting worse, but apparently COVID-19 won't be on the death certificate. I don't get sick pay, but you have to look on the bright side.

I'd been in contact with a positive case so had to isolate for fourteen days. I've now tested positive myself so it's only ten days.

Johnny Depp has lost his libel case and is now officially a wife beater.
Is him being a wife beater the outcome we're after? I know nothing about the case but surely we want people not to be wife beaters?

BioNTech and Pfizer reporting their vaccines are 90% effective. FTSE up 5.5% in half an hour. I might get back in a stadium before the end of the season followed by Hampden in the summer to see Scotland crush the Euros. Plus, this is my last day of isolation.

A new vaccine coming out and now the end of only an  excuse,  a good ending to a horrible year.

It’s good when you get a bag of really nippy ones eh?? If I'm struggling with my pints at the pub (whatever they are 🙄), I get a packet or 2.

Sure is! Felt like Killswitch Engage were playing a gig in my mouth.

I usually listen to the Sounds of the 80s podcast on a Sunday morning, and it’s always a cheery start to the day.

This week, however, Gary Davies really proves himself to be the good c**t I always thought he was. Highly recommend listening to the last 10 minutes at the very least.
