    Hi newbie and just joined

    Hi there

    I have been registered on the forums sometime now having only really ever read the Naturally Aspirated Models section!

    However today I ventured outside that section and discovered that you could join this club & all the benefits - so I have immediately subscribed!

    Just wanted to say hi really as well.

    My vehicle at the mo is the 1.6 8v Z16SE Astra Club and previous car was a MK3 1.7TD LS and before that I had a Cavalier, so Vauxhall is in the blood really.

    Hope to be posting some more soon and receiving my pack in due course.

    Cheers

    Brooksey

    Thanks - it is a really clean one, even now 12,000 miles & 8 months later. Its not the silver but pearlesant grey (mirage) so looks really tidy. The interior is still damm good for a Y reg as well.

    I service it myself and am happy with the car excepting a few EGR niggles...

    Plans, oh yeah sure, focusing more ICE at the moment. I have a headset with USB and SD card slot but still on standard speakers would like a sub in the boot one day.

    Would also like to colour coordinate door handles, those skirts and get some Astra SXi alloys. So just a small tidy up really.

    Thanks, good advice that for all Astras, I got my cambelt done by Vx a while ago when I took it on at 68k - as I ignored the service history sadly they said it was not necessary to change the water pump but I know better now.

    Now on 80k, still moving fine excepting a few electrical gremlins recently.

    waterpump and cambelt should be done every 40k, when the waterpump is on its way out you can tell because it makes your car sound like an diesel (as i found out)
