Pacmania you are right, this is going to be the longest weekend ever! Fortunately I have some plans to keep me occupied! Airsoft on Saturday and comic-con on Sunday :D

Also can't wait to try out the lights!

There is one thing I don't like about the car, the licence plate I got is horrible! Wish I could've picked from a list :lol:

It's really irritating these days that you can no longer choose from a list in respect of your number plate. I was lucky that, at the very least, I didn't get LV16 BUM, for example, or something with 'VD' in (although, thinking about it, they probably wouldn't release those anyway ;) ;) )

Hi

You can if you buy your plates before the registration date. I got my plates in June 2015 ready for my car being delivered in January.

The first two letters are the area I was born, the numbers are the year I was born and the last three letters are my initials.

Cheers

Paul

Yeah, my younger son did the same. I was happy to gamble, however.....................

I don't know what it is about it, but it just doesn't feel right, probably the "LL66" part.

So, despite having had it sat there since Thursday, they never took it in for its pre delivery inspection etc until 3 this afternoon. I was finally able to pick it up around 6 and.... well... I am a very very happy man indeed! Disappointed that it was only 6 miles home lol
Will try and get a few pics over the next couple of days.

I didn't wanna make a whole new thread so here goes... tomorrow will see a second Astra coming home! This one is my mums, she's gone for a SRi Sports Tourer with the 1.6T, in sovereign silver. Gonna have to try and get a pic of the two together!
