    help i just drove my old coupe and i love it :( lol

    hey all as you all know i recenty purchased a astra cabby turbo .. and love it .. few teething issues with the turbo leak etc but i do love it


    how ever i just took my coupe for a little drive to keep it nice and healthy and i abaslutly loved it ... my short shift felt lovely brakes felt lovely even felt really responsive, brakes felt much better (allthough recently all changed so would make sence lol) .. just loads of little things that make it feel like a better drive, also its lowerd so prob makes it feel better , all these mods will do to cab eventualy. ... so tempted to keep it and just mod it like crazy lol but yet again i wanted a convertiable but cant use it yet due to weather .. help im going mad lol ..!!!!!

    everyone ever had this, fact i love my old car to much lol

    i have got a convertible last week and i know what you mean about the weather, but just think of it in the summer NICE
    You got all winter to get the mods done to the cabby so sell the coupe, get some money for it, spend money on the cabby and yourll have a major grin on your face in the summer! Yourll have a bigger grin on your face than i will, i only got the 1.8 and you have got the turbo! WHOOP!!!!! Am jelous! haha

    Bring on the summer

    Can't you put all the trick bits on the new car?

    I remember when I got my SRiT to replace my old Sport, I still miss that car! It handled a lot better than my SRiT too!

    Its the same with anything m8, u love what u know!!Your used 2 the Coupe thats all,once u get rid of it n sort the Cabby out (leaky turbo & few more mods) it will just get better & better.Everything takes some getting used 2...even tho there similar cars .
