    What do I have.

    Hi all I am new to these forums and new to the Astra. I live in Australia and have just got my Holden Astra. The same as the the UK ones but with a Holden badge. This is what I have. Its stock.
    I keep hearing Mk4 and MK3 so what is this.

    1999 HOLDEN ASTRA TS Hatchback City 5dr Man 5sp 1.8i
    This is what it looks like. And it has the X18XE engine

    Ahh I think we in Aus only have the mark 4. Might be wrong, any other Aus people come here?

    oh yeah got big plans for it. Fisrt new stereo, bodykit, rims, steering wheel, and then rims. After all that I am looking at a possible turbo(not sure if I should get an engine conversion) and all the new Engine Accessories needed to go with it. I will see what come next.

    This will be all done over an extended time, as I am only 17 still at school, and traveling next year.

    And thanks for the welcome.

    Aussie here!
    Insurance is still expensive!! It would be fairly high unless he's insured as a driver on parents policy (most young people are over here).......
    But yeah, insurance is much cheaper than in the UK
