    Newbie says hello.

    Good Morning all, My 1st post on the forum having just bought an Astra Sportive 1.7dti, im really pleased with it and purchased it from a mate of mine who has had it from new, so its kind of nice knowing its history and the way its been treated!
    Its got 119k with full Vauxhall main dealer service history, although a new engine was replaced under warranty due to a cam belt failure (not replaced during servicing)
    Apart from that it seems fine but would prefer a bit more power poss from a 1.9/2.0 versions, but hey ho!
    I splashed out on some 17s last week and need to know what your advise would be on a much needed drop? I only use the van for a couple of days a week when I do a second job as a painter/decorator, so ne real weight involved..
    Maybe you could help me out on what drop to go for, poss 30-40mm me thinks?
    Included a couple of pics and my other baby too
    Thanks
    Andy

    Superb van. Loving the alloys. Defo a 30/30 drop should sit it very nicely indeed.

    Theres a van thread in the Astra chat area for you to get some inspiration from.

    Loving the beemer 2 mate.
