Hey Smelly, isn't the Sardinia Blue the same as the Breeze Blue we already have?And as nice as the Sunrise Orange sounds/looks, I reckon you'd soon get tired of seeing that color in the driveway every morning.
I'm still waiting for the day the Star Silver and red leather combo sits in my driveway. Ah, dreaming . . .
Any word on "special" models (i.e. optioned-up models) being released towards the end of the run? Or do we just get the plain Janes till the end?

That doesn't make sense - orders for all the 3 doors have already closed, haven't they? So if the CD and City hatch/sedan have their last build dates in April, how can Prestige Blue be available from May? Is that just for the CDX then?

The CDX will be discontinued in Mar 04 (build).. go see the sticky thread. 3 door (I think City spec) have been discontinued but I think in general the whole Astra range is being scaled down for retooling at the factory (I presume).

What they mean by closing is that there is a cut off for ordering before the next ordering window. CD and City 5 and 4 door will still be available after that cut off.

imay, not sure. Check the Opel site and see what colours is which. It maybe a similar colour but there are always differences when colour names change.

so smelly, do you have any idea when we'll be getting the all new Astra (H) in Australia? I've heard many different things, although most are saying towards the end of this year?

Doesn't worry me though...I just got a City hatch a couple of months ago that will do me for a few more years yet!
