    Hey people, new here

    Hey, probably coming to PVS and hoping to get on the stand, so thought i'd better introduce myself!

    I'm Craig, and I've come over from corsa sport due to an unfortunate event, my old corsa got written off by some stupid woman who couldnt drive. So here I am with my new car!

    A very tidy Astra G 1.6 SXi 52 reg in silver.

    Still looks brand new and has only done 37000 miles, very pleased with it indeed! I didnt realise how nice astras were until I got one, and I am utterly impressed!

    Welcome to AS/AOC mate!

    Very clean car you have there. Don't forget cambelt change @ 40K as well as the water pump thats about £400's worth just there.

    Its a jam thing

    Iain:

    Yes, i have many plans lol. I irmyed up the corsa so i think I'll do the same here, first off get the grille and i want to nick the gunmetal console from somewhere. SXi alloys are awesome, and expenisive, so I'll keep them but i might drop it 30.

    Jam:

    Bought It from a vauxhall dealership and got them to change the cambelt, oil and filter. Whats that about the water pump though? Still got 3 months warranty

    Very welcoming forum, love it

    Well put it this way if the water pump fails catestrophically (sp?) then you may as well of had a cambelt failure (as the cambelt drives the water pump). Ask them if they replaced it. They may very well of done (some dealerships did). However some didn't and probably won't honour it under warranty. It maybe worth paying out and getting it replaced TBH. I know its alot of bread and butter to put out especially after you've just purchased your car but you don't want it failing on you!

    Why not spray your centre console up?
