    They are indeed.

    Why anyone would want a Vauxhall over an Audi is beyond me.

    It's a bit like "insert suitable analogy making op's decision look ridiculous".

    How is it trolling?

    2100 seems like a reasonable quote if he's in a particularly crime free area.
    I got A 2.0l Petrol Hyundai Coupe at 18 for £850.

    Haha, that is ******* stunning dude.

    My first car was a Grp 2 1.0 Polo E. Pretty much the slowest car on the road (but my god, beautiful and well built).

    It started my love affair with VAG (HA!).

    First year was £1264 .

    Being old has some advantages. 2.9V6 Corrado. £680 fully comp. :cool:

    Driven both cars actually and both do shift. Your insurance is high but it will be for a few years till 25 then it will start coming down. But yeah if you can afford it then why not ? But make sure the car your getting either the Astra or Audi has got full service history, see which one has low mileage, how many previous owners, and check for any accident history etc

    Tbh your lucky to be driving a nice car straight after passing your test, as I started with a non power steering banger. Just one point of of advice these cars move when you put your foot down and as a new driver you will be tempted to do so on more then one ocassion, just be carefull and drive safely, speed can also be an issue for new drivers and many end up wrapping their cars around lamp posts as they do not know how to handle their rides.

    Right just passed my driving test and im getting an astra in 1 weeks time 1.7 2007 3door in black. for 6500 and my insurance is going to be 2100 but i am just wondering if anyone here has an astra and if its worth getting or not because i had to choose that or an audi a3 and all my friends said the astra
    Astras are good cars, got one myself. Trust me you won't be dissapointed. An audi a3 will be much older for you money, aswell as expensive to insure.

    Get the A3.

    I have a 1.6 Astra. Insurance was £2000 (not fronting, but with some multi-car-within-household discount).

    Astra is proving to be a great first car for me, but if I had the choice of the A3 then I would go for that. Deffo a better car overall.

    Get the Astra, an A3 isn't even a proper Audi, it is for people who don't have loads of money but are tits and want to look like they do. This is shown from the whore who posted "look less blue collar".

    At least the Astra is what it is, a hatchback, a regular one. The A3 is a regular hatchback posing as a German autobahn cruiser.

    Only just seen this, good choice. However judging a car purely on its born on date isn't a good way of going about things.

    How do you afford this car by the way?

    How many of you passing comment on either of these cars have owned and run either? There are considerations other than Audi > Vauxhall.

    Also many of you seem to be slately the looks of the Astra. It is a better looking car than the A3 which is frankly bland.

    astra is a decent car, but if you have to spend a bit more money id get an audi A3

    yeah but the astra honestly looks better. Audis are probably better performance wise but astra is lush
