Vauxhall Astra?

Or, something exotic like an Opel Astra? 

Or is it something exotic and very rare, a Holden Astra?

I can't decide if it's more or less exotic than an Astra, it's certainly more sensible!

2007 Kia Ceed 1.6 pez with just under 85000 miles on the clock. Tons of history and drives really well.

There's some rattle can stone chip repairs on the bonnet and a dent in the rear o/s door but I can't say it really bothers me.

It's got a years MOT with no advisories.

I am hopeful it will prove to be a good, reliable "an car". It booked in next week to have the tracking done as I think it's slightly out.

No collection thread as I'm a bit useless and it wouldn't have been an exciting one. I bought the new steed from the same trader I bought the Focus from. I traded the Focus in to save selling on Facebook and to make collection easier and to save the hassle of insuring both.

So here she is....

Ooh that's nice!

'an car' doesn't come any better! Well maybe the Hyundai sister car i30, I guess that depends on which grille you prefer.

I'd have been more than happy with either, I think the Hyundai's tend be be slightly more expensive. I'm really pleased with it. It's an LS so reasonable spec :)

LS, sounds like Grandad spec, or aspiring rep spec?

I think all Kia Ceed's are Grandad spec 😂 it's got climate control and half leather, not sure what else!

Sounds like muted luxury to me 👍

I hope it gives you thrills and reliable motoring.

Really pleased with the Ceed so far, it's quite low geared for motorway work but I'm not too worried about that. It's having its tracking done on Friday and I'll have a good look at the tyres although I'm sure they are fine for now.

Chodtastic news. Glad you're happy with it. One of my ex workmates is on his 3rd one.

So is it pronounced 'Seed' or 'keyed' or 'CD' or what?

It's not a criticism, I mean Ford made a car called KA, I've still no clue about that.

Hyundai tell different markets different pronunciations eg 'Hun-Day' in the US, as do several of the Japanese manufacturers such as Mazda, or 'Matsuzuda' if you are Japanese.

It has to be [clarkson] C Apostrophe D [/clarkson]. Stupid name for a car.

If by Clarkson you mean Jerome DeClerke of producer bashing fame, he's the sort of looney who purposefully mis-pronounces names just to wind people up. Generally, he opens his mouth in order to wind people up.

I think someone in the naming department had too many E's!

It's a bit like the Edward Woodward joke. Why does the aforementioned have so many Ds in his name?

Because otherwise he would be Ewar Woowar

There's also a joke about the disxlec (haha I can't spell disxlix) raver who took an F and died.

*Not intended to offend any disclecix people, meant as a comparison of sorts...
