    Thought it was about time I said HI

    Hey all,

    Not officially an Astra owner yet but all going well I will be soon. just got to sell my passat (yes being 20 and owning a passat wasen't the right move, its too sensible for what I want)

    I can't decide whether I want a hatchback or a coupe though can people give me there views please to help me decide. I have £4500 budget and was looking at either a SRI or coupe SE2

    cheers everyone look forward to getting to know you all.

    Hello Rich, welcome aboard

    I would definitely go for the coupe mate, but then I am biased

    how come I cant find one around for 3k? trying to get one with no more than 60k on the clock. got a 2.2 coupe to go look at this weekend but don't know what I'll do yet might stick a deposit down if he can wait for me to sell mine now, should wait til the money is in my pocket really but I'm too eager to get my hands on one and this one is a bargain if its as nice as it looks, I'll keep you posted.

    cheers

    Welcome to AOC

    Personally? I would go for the coupe. But it's up to you ultimately... what floats your boat?

    theres quite a lot of hatchbacks around me which is what puts me off and I think the coupe just looks a more stylish motor. not sure about modding yet but we'll see. I got bit by the bug when I bought my old escort mk6, was a bog standard rotter, one year later it was in the shows running rs2000 power and looks it also cost me my girlfriend but what you gunna do??!!. don't know if I would do it all again, but knowing me its only a matter of time.
