    Hi New Here

    Thinking of buying a r reg astra g 3dr td its the envoy basic thing.

    what interior can i put in it does only astra g stuff fit?

    also there is no rev counter could i fit say gsi clocks or dti clocks?
    would i need to rewire anything to make a rev counter work or will it be a part of the cars loom?

    manual windows - can these be turned into electric ones?

    and remote central locking how easy it it to fit that and what will i need?

    sorry to be a pain im new tho lol

    Thinking the exact same thing to be honest! Time and money to do anything like that would be better spent buying a car with that already in!

    i was just about to say the same as the guys above.
    youre better off getting a higher spec car with all the extras (and more) that you planned on doping anyway. the time and money spent on buyinh the mods could just go towards gettin a car that has them anyway.

    if you chose not to go down that route, all the above are easily added to any poverty spec astra. wiring should be there for the dials with rev counter. only thing you'd have probs wioth is leccy windows, leccy mirrors and anything else electric! lol

    Wellcome to AOC..

    By what you are asking i think goin for another model with these things in like the others have said could be a good option. Might not be that much difference in price.

    If thats not a option you should be able to fit most of the items your asked about in that car. I wouldnt fit DTi clocks in a petrol or vies verse.

    do i search on here if your stuck.

    500 quid is a good buy. the only thing i think you would really struggl;e with is the central locking.... there's alot of work there!
    Fitted options: Folding mirrors, cruise control, dual tone horn, remap.
    Next: Bluetooth

    Central locking is a sinch. Buy a cheap aftermarket kit off ebay. I have installed lots of systems for mates and they work flawlessly

    cool thats the main thing that im bugged with every car ive had since passing my test has had it. any chance of a link to a suitable kit.

    also is it possible to find a astra in the breakers and just buy all the compoenents and fit them to my car lock set ect. or it the remote central locking tied into the ecu?
