    Cool My Astra

    Hi All,

    Just joined the club. So wanted to fire some questions. (I am not a car geezer so pardon me)

    I brought my 2002 Astra 3Door manual 1.6 SXI last year. And its been keeping on wheels with the best satisfaction so far. However, i wanted few modifications for it such as electric wing mirros and cruise control etc. I dont know if it is called MK3 or MK4 or what? Also I need to buy those spare (never mind new or old) and also need help to fit it.

    I did sent it for service in February to Lance owen and they charged me 900 quid for what i dont know. Since i am not that techie i just paid it off. So this time to fit the spares I dont want to go to them. So need help.

    Could you please give me the spare's numbers so that i can order or if you know some one's selling them please let me know. Also what is my car, is it MK3 or MK4?

    more questions to follow..

    quite a few things they said..

    that 900 includes my MOT..

    they said the initial MOT failed at 5 points.. they changed quite a few seals.. and changed the cam belt.. and did something to drivers seat adjustment.. and some more i guess.. i give you more details if you could explain..

    oh btw.. sorry.. its a 2002 astra.. so now is it still called MK4.. and also what does MK4 and MK3 stand for?

    take a look in the how to's theres a guide which says if you can put cruise controll on due to a pin in a connector (not 100% myself as its factory fitted on mine) the mk4 is jsut as its the 4th astra shape to be made mk 3 is the bubble shape pre 1998, mk4 is also known as astra G and the new mk5 shape known as the Astra H
