2008 Astra XR
Default Insignia

So there is an Opel Insignia parked across the street from my house right now, I was driving by and noticed a nice looking car, and then thought "wtf, opel?" so I walked the dog over to see it. Looks very nice, I guess they're coming here as the 2011 Buick Regal, it had a manufacturer plate on it.

I also feel like I need to rebadge my car now, funny how fast it caught my eye.

2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Insignia

shame you didn't grab a pic. I feel the same. I really want to re-badge it lol.

I'm still curious to see what Penske can do w/ all this. I've been looking at the 2010 Astra in Europe and zmg...why oh why they didn't do more over here is so beyond me.
I know one of the largest problems is the small engine, but hey...I'm happy - not out to win any races w/ this one. I've got the 72 Camaro for the track

The Regal is coming, but as an early-intro 2012 model, much like they did with the CTS refresh (going on sale in January). There will be a concept car making the autoshow rounds next year, with actual production commencing in 2011 at Oshawa.
