New car for wifey
« on: 04 March 2018, 15:34:15 »

Mo has developed what the doctor thinks is a Bakers cyst at the back of her left knee. She is waiting for a scan, whenever that happens, and has been given naproxen to help with the pain (Jaime will testify to how much use that is).
Anyhow, she could really do with an auto to take the strain off her left knee, so we should be picking this up on Tuesday evening:

Have you had a Vauxhall badge fitted to a Fiesta, so you can have his-and-hers cars? ;D

I think they are great value for money, Nick. A euro shitbox, of course, but £10,120 for an 18 month old car with 9500 miles on it is very good. They've given us £8500 for her captur, so £1600ish to pay.
It's a 1.6 cdti tech line.

Also, the beauty of trading a shitbox for a shitbox, we haven't even seen the astra yet and they haven't seen the captur. But they are what they are, and it should just be "Gis your car and some dosh and here's your car. Bye."  ;D

Nice car. Good colour. However, you could have saved £5120 by purchasing my eleven year old Signum. :)

You may need to explain that the pedal on the left is not required because the car is an auto. Just a pedal to make it go and a pedal to make it stop.

Be gentle. :)

I don't think an Astra would suit your personality, Lizzie.

I can imagine you in an old Bristol. You may like it so much you end up with a pair of Bristols. :)

Sorry to go off track but I cringe when I see that name.

You are probably already aware but those things can be evil bastids if not taken with a counter tablet. We weren't aware at the time but they are intended to be used for two weeks maximum on their own, but as my wife is waiting for a knee replacement they left her on them long term with no counter active tablet. Over nine months later, they had stripped the lining off her stomach, causing chronic heartburn, stomach pains/cramps, but worst of all it was initially diagnosed as stomach cancer.
We went through hell until she was given the all clear. When you go through the many tests they are in no rush to give you any results, sometimes taking over three weeks to let you know.

As I said, hopefully you are aware. I just wouldn't want anyone to go through what we did when it can be avoided.

Anyway, this was something to do with a new car wasn't it. Enjoy.  :y

I found them useful, not as a pain killer, but as a anti inflammatory, and like all tablets, make me sleep like a baby.

Vauxhallís do offer staggering value, hope Astra serves you well  :y

Our 2014 Zafira Tourer was great value for the money compared to other badges, itís been great so far.

Making me consider Insignia, for similar money as that Astra get one less than 3 years old. Elite spec, Xenons, leather, etc.

Jag XF is at least 50% more for similar age/spec

At the end of the latest ad for Astra it says British brand since 1903,which given the Americans[GM]have owned it since 1929-and had a stake in it earlier than that-and it's now French owned,seems a little incongruous to be making something of the heritage now!Regardless I think I've owned more Vauxhalls than any other brand and must say I like them.Hope Mrs.Stemo enjoys her new car and that she gets well soon :y :y

Thanks, Baza, but I don't think there's much chance of that. Just got back from taking the student for a meal in a fish restaurant in Wakefield (you know, on a plate instead of in paper), dropped him back at Sheffield and driven back to Barnsley. She was in so much pain in the car I thought she was going to burst out crying. It's a worry.  :(

I'm going to fit the sills I bought for mine, but a realistic look at the rest of it means it's not going to get any more attention. Nor am I going to paint the N/S quarter, or tidy the doors and bumpers. It's now at the stage where I'll be continually working my way around the car. I reckon it will be bean tins in 3 years, less if any major mechanical issues occur. That's true of most of the Omegas I see now  - hanging by that last MOT

Well sills are sorted, itís MOT time in a couple of weeks. I intend to clean up around chassis section behind front tyres, once spring has sprung, remove all loose crap and slap some waxoyl sealant on it.

Also going to treat it to some new front brakes!

Might even wash it next weekend, itís filthy after all that snow has melted.

It is properly quick but you soon get used to it and want more power and torque.

Judging by how long she keeps hers cars Mrs STMO should be bored shitless with it by April. It's lucky you have almost unlimited wealth. :)

I think that this is generally known as the pot calling the kettle black M'lud.  ::)  :)

I've owned the mighty Signum for yonks. :P :P

And I bet it's sick to the back teeth with you!  ;D

How about the Jaaaaag???  About time you chopped that in for something a little more exclusive isn't it?  :-\  Aston Martin?  :y



That is completely different. More of a therapeutic aid than a form of transport. ;) ::)

I remember when I first got a bigger bike than the previous one, treating it with respect.  But it doesn't take long before the throttle is always on the endstop ;D

Picked it up earlier....and I caught her out ;D She followed me from north Leeds through the city and on to the M621, then down the M1 until we turned off. I snuck into a dark bit by the side of the road and waited till she passed me, then pulled out a couple of cars behind. She, of course thought I'd gone on ahead. Well......she certainly gave it the beans. Even though hers is a 1.6 diesel and mine is 2.0, I had to floor it to keep up with her on a dual carriageway.
Should have seen her face when I pulled up behind her at home.

Itís good Vauxhall have a traditional auto, unlike the Omega Iím sure the torque converter disconnects when stationary.

The Omega always wants to pull in D and have to have brake firmly planted, soon release itís off. Zaf on other hand, foot off and itís a second or so before it engages and pulls.

Flipping shifter to one to side and tap down a few, picks up well on joining a motorway.

For me it would be 50/50 between the equivalent Astra or Focus.  For a newish car that I didn't intend to keep for more than a couple of years as Uncle and Auntie STEMO do, I wouldn't rule out the likes of Renault, Citroen, Fiat, Kia etc, as for a runabout it would depend on the best deal.  ;)

I understand that this attitude is complete heresy for some on here though!  ::)  ;D

I think you'll find that's the hill start assist, press the footbrake long and hard enough and it engages. In normal driving my astra auto is pulling at the leash, the same as every other auto I've driven.

 Yes.The Insignia has certainly been well beaten with the ugly stick. On the plus side they are cheap to buy and in estate form with the 2.8 V6 could possibly replace even the all conquering Signum. :)

New insignias are quite attractive, but I fail to see why they have tried to keep, if slightly restyle, that horrible rear end.

Yes, Mr Tilbo. So long as I don't see its (or my reflection in a shop window) I think I could live with the troubled looks of the Insignia.

Makes you wonder how it was signed off for production though. They would need to be blind. :)

There's something not quite right about the new astra estate too. That chrome strip looks as though it doesn't know what to do with itself once it reaches the back. And, in the flesh, the styling manages to make the rear wheel look smaller than the front.

We have been having a clear out at home pending a move (if it ever happens) came across some old tin toy cars from my childhood & the styling is quite similar, tiny wheels & a large body overhang front & rear and these date from the 1960s.

I think it was probably something to do with trying to make as much of the back end of the car as possible out of a single piece of plastic.

The estate is marginally nicer, however, and probably the one I'd go for anyway.

The original Insignia saloon with exterior pack looks tidied than the hatch... Think the Sierra Sapphire vs the jelly blob ;)

The estate is what it is, but again, with decent wheels and exterior pack it looks better...

Those wheels are 17", but the styling is out of proportion. I prefer the astra J, but then I would, wouldn't I?  :)

Zaf on other hand, foot off and itís a second or so before it engages and pulls.
Which is precisely why we only get 1 car through at a time with traffic lights, and every roundabout now has traffic lights.

Whoever came up with that idea, along with the stupid stop/start 'dangle berries', need their testicles cooked up and force fed.

Whoever came up with that idea, along with the stupid stop/start 'dangle berries', need their testicles cooked up and force fed.
I think they should be punished, not given a sexually arousing experience.  ;D

I think you'll find that's the hill start assist, press the footbrake long and hard enough and it engages. In normal driving my astra auto is pulling at the leash, the same as every other auto I've driven.

No it wasn't. It was as though the gearbox switched off when you sat with your foot on the brake ..... I have some kind of hill start assist on my Merc & Smarts and know the difference and have also drIvey a Merc with 'hold' which is what you described.
