When the time comes, I’d love to import a 2006-2010 Vauxhall Astra VXR. There’s just something about them that I love.

I want one like this.
Nicht ein Engländer.
Reasonably priced booty.
2006 called. They want their interior back.


Isn’t the Mk5 GTI a more comfortable choice? Sure.

Isn’t the Mk2 Focus ST a more reliable car? Probably.

Isn’t the Megane RS225 a more practical hot hatch? Yep.

At the end of the day, the Astra VXR speaks to me.

Not only is it telling me that I’ll understeer into a tree, but it’s telling me that I need one in my life.


I always wanted one as a kid since I saw the Top Gear comparison test, and hopefully, that day comes sooner rather than later.

Good night, Oppo.
