    Default Mid life crisis. VXR Astra

    Hi. Just traded in the astra 2.0 ltr SRI for a 11 plate (reg 2012) power red Astra VXR. Looks like previous owner looked after it as 25k miles and 19 inch alloys have rim guards fitted. Bought near Leeds, is this your old car ? Admit to mid life crisis but why not!. Drive 40 miles each way to work (m way and A roads) and car is dream to drive. Getting 33 to gallon. Don't understand lettering system on this site - Astra J ???? Explain please.😂

    Welcome aboard VxrO fella, fully understand the midlife crisis thing

    As for lettering, it's all about the "version" of the vehicle in its development and appearance.

    The Astra-J is the current model / version body whereas the Astra-H is the version which preceded it, etc etc. and similarly with the other vehicles from the manufacturer

    Cheers mate. So I have an Astra H. Fancied the new model but £15k to drive to work and 25 to gallon didn't make sense.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Astra-H Vxr mate. They are gorgeous motors which go like s*** off a shovel

    Enjoy your "crisis" pal, I'm handling mine with a 3.2 Vectra and an engine just rebuilt that I'm picking up today .. woohoo

    Mind you I am "cheating" a little, and running it on LPG at half the price of the other juice

    nice one. I am putting the bedroom ceiling back in to my 1750 cottage. If you mentioned VXR in those days you were burned as a witch. Hope the new engine goes ok.

    Wouldn't a 2012 VXR be an Astra J? I thought they stopped building the H in 2010.
