Surely this thread only needed a single post in response?

Special Signum tax  :y

But jeeeeze, a grand a year in road tax.  :o

I like petrol engines, but not that much. 

As mentioned before, a 3.0 twin turbo 6 cylinder petrol in M140 is just 130 a year!

He must have kept the ticket price below 40k and even then its 515 for the first year and then 140 for each subsequent year (if above 40k you can add 310).....or its registered pre April 2017

Yeah, mine (66 plate) was 140 pa. As for the below 40k, I think you'd do well to spec one up to that level. Mine had most things (auto, heated seats, Harmon kardon, pro nav etc) and was 32k and I didn't get the best deal around. Certainly back then, you could get a Billy basic manual car for high 20k's.

At that price its a lot of performance for the money. When it works  ::)

In fact, I might give that dealer a ring tomorrow.

Good idea. Tell him he has a grossly overpriced Astra for sale. :)
I rang him. I told him he had a grossly overpriced astra for sale that was the colour of shite.  ;D

That should result in a significant price reduction. :y

Or.....I slept on it and thought better of it. Something I didn't do in my eBay days. I'd wake up on Sunday morning, look at my emails and think 'Fook...I bought a car last night'.

You'll be glad you did.

It's overpriced, an odd colour, and after the 'unbridled power' of the 2 litre Astra it will feel shit slow. :)

About the same 0-62. Less power but much lighter chassis. Around 10 mpg better, as well.

Yeah his was well under 40k so avoided the higher band, his is a 67 plate.

Very likely to be one of, if not the last hot hatch with RWD and more than 4 cylinders.

Current rumours are that it's replacement will be a turbo 4 pot with AWD. Shame really.

Yeah 1 Series next gen won't be RWD, also I hear only auto's no manual option.

It is a hoot, small 3 door hatch back, 3.0, RWD, manual.

At one time you were always informed of an increase in road fund licence, but for quite a few years now it has increased in the budget with absolutely nil notification. I think all 3 of our vehicles are around 280 a year each.

I find the one series 'excessively ugly'.........a lump devoid of style.

Mind you women have been known to say the same of me. :)
