    Just a few new pictures. I have had the car for 1 year now and still look forward to driving it everyday.



















    Thanks for looking.

    Nice shots.

    I typically ask this question but rarely find anyone with the XE...

    How is the performance and fuel economy of the 1.8?

    I agree with everyone else... your car looks awesome, and your pictures are better than anything Saturn has ever shown! Your 5th picture looks just incredible! Great rims!

    Great Photos, did you use a polarizer over the lens? They turned out great, perfect lighting conditions as well.

    The second picture is my favorite. Just enough background.

    If I was looking for a small ca,r I would look at a Astra. GM needed to market theses better.

    I drive the exact same Astra XR here in L.A. The performance is great and I've got a much as 35.2 mpg on the freeway. Push the gas pedal down a notch and this car really takes off!

    Sharp looking car.

    I'm puzzled why the Canadian 2009 Fuel Economy Guide lists a 2.4L engine because I don't think it was ever actually offered.

    I think the 2dr Astra is the best looking compact car on the market.

    Great photos BTW.

    I wonder how it drives in comparison to the Cobalt......too bad my 2.4L will leave it for dead This is one car that got short changed in the engine dept

    Re: New pictures of my Astra.

    One of my relatives just bought one. Got to drive it the other day. What a hoot to drive. Lots of pep. He also got black. He loves the thing and got such a good deal he couldn't pass it up. He just happened to be at the dealer, saw the prices and traded in his old Saturn for one. He says he couldn't be happier.

    Many happy klicks!
