Well....last night i did it....i traded my 06 Astra SRi Xp into the dealer....was offered £7,500 for it so was more than happy with the valuation and offered they'd given....will be really sad to see it go as i love my astra, has brought me so much fun and has helped me meet all the great people on here! (Y)

And in it's place is an 09 Seat Leon FR with fullt BTCC bodykit in Speed blue (custom colour option of £600! :shock: It was an ex demo car so has got all the toys on it!

However i dont have any pictures :'( it was chucking it down last night....

I pick it up either tomorrow night or Saturday...and soon as i do i'll be getting some pictures up on here for you guys...

And if you'll still have me... i won't be going anywhere...will just a traitor in a different car! :lol:

I've said before I think the Leons are a great looking car, I'd be hard pushed to choose if I ever downsized from the Zafira!

Good luck with your new motor and don't be a stranger (Y)

I'm hoping not to be a stranger....this site gives me too much entertainment when i'm at work! :lol: plus you guys know you're stuff with cars so always great for advice no matter what the make and model!

But yeh very quick turned around, think it's because it's an ex demo it's ready to go, just got to valet it and job done! (Y)

Bet you can't wait mate, at least you'll only have a couple of sleepless nights. :lol:

Thats brilliant news mate, so its the latest facelift model too? (the common rail engine is only available in the latest variant)

We have 1 system (CRD2) that works well, CRD-T is available and being used in Germany on the CR engine, plus there is a new one in development too...

So name youre weekend and we'll have an AON/ex-Astra meet :)

I assume so, it's an 09 plate, registered in March, only done a few thousand miles...

well tbh mate...i have no clue what one i'd need or want! :lol: thats where you're selling power and knowledge would come in to play! :rofl: and i think i'll be needing to save the pennies also as i know they're not cheap, and i know the mrs wants a trip up to newcastle at some point so could meet on the way up!

nice one lad, tbh in last couple of months ive been seriously considering a leon, good luck (Y)
Thanks mate, and if i were you, i'd do it! Insurance is a lot cheaper, it's only costing £45 extra till july, and thats probably just admin fee's :lol: but the fr is quicker than a diesel astra, and rivals it on the looks, esp with the bodykit etc....go for a test drive and i think you'll be sold!

Ive found this one...



As its got the BTCC kit on, i cant tell if its the facelift or pre-facelift...

Gorgeous car, maybe worth asking them if its PD or CR
