    Pics of H/Mk 5 Three door?

    Anyone got access or directions to decent pics of the new three door yet ?

    Might be in a position to change my motor sooner than I thought but want to see what the new 3 door Astra will really be like (want to see how close it stayed to the concept car, particularly at the rear) .

    If it's as good as the concept, might make do with changing the alloys on my Coupe and holding fire for a while.

    Thanks for any help - I've done a search on here and a few other VX sites but still struggling to get anything near definitive.

    the 3 door is not expected untill early 2005 the only pics avaiable are the concept ones, but it said to be very similar to it, but the roofline will be a little higher at the rear.

    thats the GTC concept the 3 door will be based on that. The rear roof line will be higher though apparently.

    My lust is based on these pics

    Thanks for the responses - I'd seen these pics and a supporting article from Autoexpress some time ago and then saw the car featured as part of a programme about the Geneva Motor Show on Men and Motors last year.

    Jawdropping, BUT, it's the news that the rear roofline will be lifted that has me concerned. If it follows the style of the five dear at the rear I fear it will be an opportunity missed by Vauxhall, though top execs are saying it won't change dramatically from the Concept vehicle.

    Like the look of the new Coupe as well but don't like the fact that it's only going to come in a hard top cabriolet format, with the associated price premium that naturally goes hand in hand with that. If it had been available as a pure Coupe, I'd have been keen to upgrade but as it is, the new Focus three door looks the biz and it's this that has me contemplating a change.

    Just need to get me some patience pills I guess.

    There isn't going to be another Astra Coupe. The 3 door is sort of Coupe like though.

    There is, allegedly, a new Calibra....
