    just bought astra van

    Hi guys,just new to the site!
    Im a vauxhall fan of old and due to circumstances just now ive bought a mk4 astra van! I'm looking at modifying it soon and was thinking of starting with wheels and suspension! is estate suspension compatible? I'm also thinking on sri or sxi seats,irmsher front spoiler and roof spoiler so we'll see how it goes! Cheers

    ja, what Andy said.. welcome to AS/AOC!

    In answer to your question, everything from the mk4 estate will fit the van. don't forget that inside the cabin, everything from the front seats forward will also cross over from the hatch/saloon/coupe... as will the front bumper, panels grill etc etc. only differences are the sideskirts rear bumper rear lights etc.. oh and you will need estate suspension as i'm not 100% sure but IIRC its different to the hatch.

    take a look at c9rum (april car of the month), irmscherestate and a few others on here and you will get plenty of inspiration. I have a mk4 estate I am now beginning to modify so I've had a good look round myself

    oh and before you do anything else, put sum pics up, that way when you do each mod and take an updated pic, we can all see your progress! Its the law in these parts, so no arguin'!
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    BOO!!! we want pics. Modded or not, everyone likes to look at pictures (saves a lot of reading )

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
