    Anyone see the piccies of the new Astra dash?

    Just wondering if anyone saw the piccies in the paper last week of the new Astra's dash. It looks like the new Vectra's. Huge Cd player which I'd imagine you'd be hard pushed to fit an after market head unit to due to it looking like it takes 2 din slots.

    The rest of it looked ok, sort of black/grey and brushed alloy, very much again like the new Vectra.

    Personally I think it's a backward step, the current dash looks fine, a little cosmetic work on it and it would be perfect.

    Maybe if someone had a piccie from another source they could put it up here and let others take a look, it wasn't my paper so I couldn't keep the piccie.

    Finish looks quite good think I like it
    The Astras interior has been crying out for a bit more appeal. Looks well built

    Looks much better in colour. Still don't like the CD player arrangement though. Can't see how you could upgrade that unless the aftermarker start producing special HU's and that would probably mean expense.

    There are companies out there that make blanking plates for most car's with odd shapped head units. They already do them for the corsa and omega, not sure if the new vectra has the same sized radio.

    I love the look of that interior. Love all the brushed alu. Looks cool. All it needs is some red leather ... which I'll be adding if I get the H!

    The MK4 dash is a bit of a blast from the past. DIN units are no longer good, so I hope the MK5 dash is an improvement over mine. I see a TFT screen and other dash mounted goodies

    Surely Raven the next letter AFTER G is H not F

    Got to agree though there are some nice touches on the new dash. Looks miles better in colour than it did in B&W. Still don't like the CD player though

    Another point, this is probably a top of the range model, it has a GPS system like the top model G's. Would this mean the TFT screen would be smaller on lower end models?
