    Hey.

    In answer:

    1. Don't buy a Vauxhall.

    2. Carpet, air vents, seat base? Previous owner's stash?

    Pics of the under seat things would be good.

    Welcome and I'm affraid your not going to like the answers too much...
    1: how can i get my left headlamp to not have condensation inside it?
    Sell the car.

    Its a common thing with Astra's including the new ones. You can remove them from the car and go silly with bathroom sealant all over them. But thats about the best way to fix them.

    2: what are the strange things under the front seats?????? will post pics if needed!

    Yep need pics for this. Theres nothing under my seat! Unless you have got sat nav in which case it maybe the CD reader/computer for the satnav. But I'm not 100% on this as I've never seen an OEM one in an Astra Mk4 yet!

    Its a jam thing

    I think we should all take bets on what the "strange things" he talks about are!!!!

    My guess is either heater vents or multi-plug for pretensioners etc...

    As for the headlight issue - either sealant or if ur careful u can drill a few small holes in the underside to aid ventilation

    Its just the multi plug connector which houses various connections - yours will just have the seatbelt pretensioner fitted - but it will have power connections should heated/elec seats be fitted and other accessories
