Are all Brits completely oblivious of the fact that Vauxhall don't actually produce a single car?
>>
>>14190584
same deal with holden here in australia

there's a surprisingly high number of people here who seem to think that holden actually make cars apart from the commodore
>>
>>14190584
UK Astras are built at Ellesmere Port

>>14190584
I wish GM wouldn't fuck Opel over all the time. They would be the best german car maker but GM is scared of them
>>
>>14190584
Yes, the cars are rebadged, but some are still built by Vauxhall in Vauxhall owned factories in the UK.
>>
It's just a right hand drive Opel, everybody knows that
>>
Vauxhall hasn't had an independently designed car since the 50s.
They have literally all been Opels.

The droopsnoot cars and the Viva GTs are the only ones that count

The cars are designed and engineered by Opel. Some of Mercedes A-classes are made in Finland. Doesn't make them Finnish cars.
>>
what a stupid thread. ive never met anyone who thinks a vauxhall is anything but a rebadged opel and doesnt understamd they are just a GM marque.

still they are still put together in the UK, at least some of them.

OP said 'produced' not designed or engineered
all astras are 'produced' in england or poland
>>
>>14190620
No, but it makes the Finnish produced, because they were produced in Finland.

Same goes for Vauxhall.

>exploiting semantics because it's all you have

'Production' implies more than simple assembly but it's not like anyone cares because OPs point remains- Vauxhall simply assembles another company's cars.

So does Opel. They both assemble General Motors' cars.
>>
>>14191053
What are you smoking nignog when did OPEL stop engineering their own cars? I didnt know OPEL stopped engineering their own cars and simply assemble GM engineering (apparently) when the FUCK did that happen? Who's got the fucking crack pipe?

It's simple as fuck.

If Opel releases a somewhat attractive car, Burgers will claim it's actually a car designed and produced by GM and Britbongs will claim it's a pure Vauxhall car.

If Opel fucks up somewhere both will scream "hurr, muh Germon "reliability".

It has always been like that and to be honest, it's not only the case with cars.
>>
>>14190584
Possibly, but I personally couldn't care less regardless. Vauxhalls are shit.
>>
>>14190584
Lol, no
We all know. No one cares
>>
Who cares?

Vauxhalls are for people that don't know anything about cars.
>>
>>14191024
She only said assemble, faggot.
