    Question Astra Coupe Information..?

    im really thinking about getting rid of my 2.2 hatch and getting a 2.0 turbo coupe... what colours do they come in, as ive seen some silver ones which are 'wow' and some, which just look silver... are they all the same silver?

    anything to look out for when buying one, and dodgy things to look for in the coupe as a car?

    cheers for any help, chris...

    p.s. if you got pics of red coupes could you please post em up for my to have a gander!! cheers!

    Check the turbo by looking at the exhaust tip for smoking on idle and while boosting and on over run.

    C9SRi - There are a whole world of colours for the coupe, though the silvers you are on about are different, infact there are two (iirc) star silver and mirage silver, though the mirage silver sometimes looks slightly grey and being a pearlescent you sometimes see the purple coming through the paint.

    As said check for blue smoke from the exhaust and that the turbo is boosting correctly other than that its pretty much the same for a n/a car.

    Get one, they are great motors . They come in a wide range of colours from silver to europa blue(nicest one IMO), even gold and green.
