    Hi all....

    Hiya all.

    Chris from Manchester here, just signed up.

    Forum looks great, and I've been browsing for a couple of weeks now so thought it was time to register and say alreet.

    Story so far is.... been a Company Car driver for 6 years and not been able to touch/mod my cars like I used to. Got sick of giving my hard-earned cash straight to the tax man so have pulled out of the scheme and picked up a 54 Astra Coupe. Even before its mine (girlfriend is using it till my Beemer goes back at the end of November) I've been 'messing' and am loving being able to add the touch-ups that I've not been able to do for years.

    So far I've only added a few minor bits o' bling (heater surrounds, door pins, irmscher fuel cap etc - gear knob on order, handbrake lever to follow) but I've got loads planned. Got the bog standard, no frills 1.6 Bertone but plan on making a bit of a Project of it, just for the fun of it.

    Big fan (obviously) of Irmscher and just got my rear spoiler delivered today.

    So.... big hello to all here, and can I ask for any suggestions to give it that extra 'something'?

    Looking forward to hearing from you guys, maybe seeing you at some meets? And I'll keep ya posted on the upgrades.....

    Cheers all.

    Chris.

    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
