2.5 years ago we bought a 1.6 auto with electric handbrake in green.
Giffer spec. This is my wife's car, and it was bought because of a shoulder problem, that required surgery. And changing gear and pulling the handbrake was too painful.

Roll on to a week ago. My 3.2 Omega with 238k was becoming a money pit. 23 mpg was killing me. Although it was fast it's life expectancy was looking in the balance. Plus wife would not drive it.
So I did what every sensible 54 year old does and test drove a few SLKs and then bought a 1.4 turbo automatic gtc
If you look carefully my wife's Astra is hidding behind the bushes.
