A rarity for me...  I got a new car today but not picking it up till Monday.. Very much looking forward to it 😄  (just thought id share that)

Nothing special as such but its a 2019 model so it will just be nice to drive something built less than a decade ago 😄

Oh no, they put the steering wheel on the wrong side! 😅 Seriously though, nice car, great color, enjoy! 

I have also now attached my traditional Pink Floyd key fob that I have had since I saw them in 1994.. Its almost like a good luck charm.. So may Lords Gilmour and Waters bless my car and hopefully no

Now is the time to buy a car, all right.  Congratulations!

Say, are you a mail man?  They put the steering wheel in the passenger seat.

Ha...   Yes actually I picked a perfect time to go get one.. They were having a sale that was meant to be starting tomorrow and they decided to start it today instead.. If I had waited till tomorrow I would probably have missed this deal.. Got £1000 off of the price...  NICE  🙂

I don’t think we get that brand over here in America. I have no clue what kind of car that is!! 
 

The front end looks similar to a newer Volkswagen and the rear looks similar to a Subaru. Nice looking car. Hope it treats you well 

Cheers man..  I was looking at VWs.. The new Golf is really nice but they are really expensive..  This is a Vauxhall Astra.. I think in other countries it may be called Opel instead of Vauxhall.. Its a 1.4L 16v SRI (which is a turbo I think)... ..

Nice man!! Is it front, rear, or all wheel drive?

I think its six gears actually...  Is that better or worse?

They are both good, the 6 gear may be a little closer ratio meaning shifting sooner but a slight wider range of power, it would be great on the autobahn. I have an FRS that has a 6 speed automatic with manual shifting, but I live on a much smaller Island than you do and sooner or later I will end up where I started..

It was a tough call:  Wrong side or Does it fly to Hogwarts.   I did spend three years driving that way in Bermuda, and thirty some years later me and Mrs both still say something about "almost pulled out on the left this morning".

Looks like a nice car and I hope it gives you lots of years of trouble free service!

Yeah I was wondering.   Is that the same Opel that made the Opel GT?  Someone on my block where I grew up had one of these.  It was as cool as a Corvette to us little kids.
