    Thinking of buying a coupe..

    Hi guys, back and forward again with my astra, I've decided that the nice christmas gift from the student loan company will help me afford a new car and I've come across a 1.8 bertone coupe for a good price and I'm considering buying it this week.

    I've decided that I dont have the time to fix my astra which has been sat in my drive for 5 months now with only a new wishbone in place. I'm gonna break the astra gradually whenever I go home for the weekend and reclaim some money. But I have a few questions, would I be able to swap the discs and suspension setup over? I think I remember reading that you have different suspension for the coupe and the hatch, which would be a pain.

    Here is the coupe in question

    Astra is coming back..bigger badder and better
    ..or is it? Thinking of buying a coupe

    I think that looks cracking

    I'd change back to the correct lights though and drop it a bit, unless you live in speed bump central like me and its not possible

    Any more details on the car? There are lots of Coupes on A-T just now with full irmscher kit and leather interior and you'll get a 1.8 for good money just now. Turbos are a lot dearer, well for a good one anyway.
