    Hello! New member

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum. My car is an Astra coupe turbo. It's a 2004 model on a 53 plate. The milage is high at 71000, but it has endured it well. Vauxhall must be building them tough these days!



    I think I'll keep it standard externally as I like the design and the standard wheels. I may get a replacement K&N element and a remap later on when I feel the need for a little more speed

    It's a fairly basic interior spec. Cloth seats (extra firm!), only 2 airbags, aircon but no climate control. It has cruise control which I'm finding to be a useful feature on long journeys and in areas with SPECS cameras.

    I'm told it's Europa blue. I'll have to pop over to a dealer for touch up paint as I tried Halfords, but they didnt even have it listed.

    I fitted some irmsher heater dial chrome rings. I used blue tack as recommended here and it works fine. I did not like them much at first, but I have fitted an aftermarket radio that has chrome rings on it, so now it matches better.

    I've been reading the forum on and off for a couple of weeks now. It has some excellent information on it and it helped a lot when I was replacing the radio.
