    Lotus astra could return! w00t!

    Well, this is really REALLY weird. Some of you who know me (or a little about me) will know that I've had very little to do with Astra-Sport since I sold my beloved SRi last March time, and even tbh prior to that!

    Anyway, whilst I still have the 330d BMW my new partner is in the mood for a car, so what better way for me to 'get back into the swing of things' than suggesting to her an Astra Coupe. You see, no need for a hatch, and i've always had a soft sport for the Coupe.

    I'm quite keen on a 2L Turbo, but my budget is really pushing the £6500 exc. insurance. Anyway, i've seen a few 1.8s around etc, and wanted to know, not compared to the 2L turbo, but how to they fair against the 2.2 in REAL driving terms.

    Also, Has anyone EVER had the Climate Control fitted to a MK4 Astra. In all my years of dealing with these cars (5 years roughly), i've NEVER seen a MK4 with Climate Control, although I know it was an option.

    So, moving on, its good to kind of be back, watch this space, and a little heads up, if we do get one, i'll be able to FINALLY finish my folding wing mirror mod as well as another small one that i have up my sleeve!

    Take care all, hope to speak to you soon

    A friend of mine has climate control in his coupe turbo, and absolutley swears by it, infact on any new car, it would be the first box he would tick when it comes to the options

    Shann, nice price too my friend! Can you enlighten me into how much you pay for insurance, your age, etc. I'm sure it won't be drastically different from my TB'd SRi, but just wanted a guideline. They are group 15 arent they!?

    Thanks

    and thanks for the warm welcome (again! lol)

    Oh, and have you got any more piccies!?

    My mate has climate control in his Astra 2.2 Hatchback ... I think it looks cheap and not as nice as the climate control found in the Leon Cupra etc ...

    Real life driving... well I've beaten my mates 2.2 Hatchback in my old Astra Coupe Turbo many times very easily.
