TopGear declared the best looking brand of cars, overall - when you look at all models available, are Vauxhalls.


I agree with Jeremy. :thumbup:

Vauxhalls are just Opals with another name badge but to Jeremy they are still Vauxhalls.

I don't know, you know! That Opal badge gives the "face" of the car a totally differnt look - Jeremy might not deem them so attractive... :dunno:

I personally think it looks good and it is great to drive.

What does that say about me Amy? :P

Erm, my hubby used to have one of those but he had to get rid of it as he kept getting stopped by the popo. (Black guy in BMW...)

I think they're common and chav and was glad to see the back of it!

So I'd say you're council estate scum with a pit-bull cross and tattoos :grin:

French cars are shit!

Used to work in a Renault dealership and the Renault Technicians (not mechanics :naughty:) officially told me to never ever buy a French car! EVER! :lol:

My first car was a second hand Renault Clio 1.9 Diesel. It cost me a fortune on repair bills, I still can't believe what a miserable piece of shit it was! :thumbdown: I currently drive a Skoda Fabia 1.9 Diesel. As long as a car is reliable and fuel-efficient, I'll drive it. Don't give a shit about what it looks like, I'd drive a purple Fiat with pink dots if that would be the best thing.

Oh, and taxi drivers and bestelwagen* drivers should be shot. They're always speeding and generally drive like assholes.

* The car in the picture. No idea what bestelwagen is in English :ask:

We just say "white van" and the drivers are "white van men", surprisingly!

But yes, they are shitheads.

Just historical. GM bought over both plants and at the of the '70's introduced the Vauxhall Astra which was known here as the Opal Kadett. The same car just the steering wheel difference.
This carried on up today and the same applies to Ozland where Holden were joined up to Vauxhall.
Here is the entry in Wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vauxhall_Motors

An interesting read.

BTW it was the same for Rootes. They exported the Hillman to Europe but called it a Sunbeam strangely enough.

Let me guess. Anyone driving a Prius is the greatest person ever and should totally be nominated for like a Nobel peace prize. Right?
