    anyone from Oxford?

    Just joined the site thought I'd say hello! Recently sold my Clio 172 Cup and bought an '04 1.6 sxi twinport...pretty gutted but had to get rid cos insurance and tax (especially after '09) was rinsing me of all funds.
    Got the astra for a good price and am happy wiv it but its really tough not having the performance of the Clio anymore.

    Few niggles iv got - front brakes squeakin so will slap some c paste on the pads see if it sorts it. Also when are ppl getting their cambelts done on these motors (x16xep). Mines done 50k miles and is 04 plate. Sure the service booklet says 10 years/100k miles but that sounds a bit long to me?

    Cheers

    There's a few of us on here from banbury and bicester but not many from oxford.Not to up to date on a xep engine but 100k sounds to much for a cambelt change,may be wrong.Just phone vauxhall and see what they say.
    Europa blue turbo,the best colour by far!

    Hi ed

    yeah there are a few of us from the area. Keep an eye on this forum for meets

    100k/10yrs sounds a long time, most Vaux engines are 40k so id double check the handbook TBH.

    Nice one Tracker, keep your eye out for a meet.

    Do you know of any good pubs with large carparks around your area. Not familer with Carterton but would be good to have a meet further south in the region

    gt an 04 astra twinport. Vauxhall fitters say its been reduced to 60K for cambelt. wt temperature does your gauge sit at during the cold weather, alot of people, say it doesnt move very much from the bottom of the temp gauge.
