    newbie!

    hello all!
    ive basically joined because my stepdad has an astra and has decided he wants to do some modding, ive come across from 106owners.com as im a pug enthusiast *dont kill me* so i know how great these forums are and how helpful you all can be!
    so yeah ill be around from time to time sourcing ideas for the astra as ive pretty much been given a free rein! woop!

    Hi and welcome to AOC!

    Check out your regional group forum for detailed information on local meets and events, reccomended retailers and garages in your area etc. We attend shows big and small throughout the year as well as rolling road days, track events, factory visits etc so there is always something on.

    Make yourself known in your regional forum and I'm sure the friendly locals will arrange a mini meet to say hi. (we try to have meets on a regular basis of at least once a month in our region, sometimes combining neighbouring regions on bigger events)

    Larger shows are usually advertised on their own section, such as Trax, PV and Billing where we have a large AOC show stand prescense.

    By joining up as a paid member you also get access to "locked" forums for members only, as well as getting useful discounts and perks such as Adrian Flux insurance discount and LMF vauxhall parts.

    If you have any specific questions you can use the "search" facility (see the buttons at the top) type in a keyword and have a look at posts relating to your query, or if you can't find it just pop a new thread up in the forum most suited to your query, (eg "car care and detailing" if you have a question about polishes/waxes etc) AOC is all about sharing information and skills and having fun with our astras, and there is usualy someone who is willing to come round and lend a hand if you are unsure about something in return for tea & biscuits or beer tokens

    Hope you enjoy the club!

    Kirsty

    Oh od, don't go down the jap route unless it's a jap car. Go down the smooth and low route. Some nice 16's, lower it right down and smooth it
