    Astra Cab Coupe

    Haven't posted for a while.

    Saw a Silver Astra Cabriolet / Coupe the other day, looked really good. Had German plates on.

    Anyone got any pictures of them? Never seen one before.

    probably a pre-production press vehicle.
    The first VXR over here was german and had german plates.

    Looks nice.... wouldn't mind px-ing my coupe for one (if I have the money).... I reckon it would look sweet with a VXR kit, and the VXR 18"s

    Yes, that's the one.
    It did look really nice.

    Can't say where I saw it, but it wasn't anywhere near a road, if you know what I mean.

    was on the news on top gear during the last series when they were reviewing cabrio's as if there was any difference betwwen those that were designed from the start as them and those that were not. Apparantly this one was so should be good.

    i like it a lot, i do feel it has a big arse. the thing im worried bout though is that even thought there will be a vxr model which will have the customary 240bhp due to the hard folding roof wn't it make the car very heavy, also with the roof down it will make the car less rigid, so my fear is that it will have a detached driving experience that will also be let down by the weight of it
    love my new car a silver Audi TT 3.2 quattro with red leather
