    New owner, SRI 2.0 - your thoughts?

    Well brought the car today (2.0 SRI, W reg, 46000 miles) , overall very pleased with it although I won't get it till early next week. Its having the cambelt/tensioners changed as well a service and MOT. The car is in great condition, however there is one thing that is really niggling at me, and that's the R/H Irmscher skirt.

    I'll have to take a picture to show you what I really mean, its hard to explain. It just doesn't seem to fit flush against the body of the car, it sorta' hangs down a few mil from the body. If your car has an Irmscher body kit take a close up picture of the skirt where is sits up next to the start of the rear wheel arch, this might give me an indication as to what it should look like when its fitted properly.

    Couple of other things, is there usually 2 sets of keys with the Astra G's? My old fiat coupe used to have a red master key and a blue reserve key, is this the same with the Astra Mk4's? The salesmen was also unsure as to whether the standard alarm has a boot sensor? I tested this and it doesn't appear too have one, although I could be wrong?

    re: New owner, SRI 2.0 - your thoughts?

    Ya looks like I'll have to have a spare key made then, only got the one. Not sure how this is going to effect the alarm/immobiliser, if at all. Might be worth having it reprogrammed, don't like the idea of a spare key floating about somewhere When I get the car I'll post a picture of the side skirt so you can have a look for yourself.

    Regarding the standard alarm, do the SRI's have boot sensors?

    Thanks

    When you get your new key you'll have to get it programmed at a Vauxhall dealer, quick Tech2 job
