    My new Astra convertible exclusiv

    Hi everyone.
    I picked up my new Astra on Saturday. I thought I'd post some pictures.

    The car was registered in Sept 05 and has 22k miles on the clock with full Vauxhall service history.

    I love this car to bits and I have spent a little time tcutting some of the small scratches out and going over the car with my mcguires clay then wax. Well, only done drivers side wing, door and quarter so still got lots more to do but it really has brought the car up lovely!!







    What do you think?

    nice car mate. Needs lowering, and a decent wax as NXT is shite.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    looks very nice. one of the last ones too.

    how much did you pay if you dont mind me asking?

    seems the coupes/cab are getting very very cheap now

    is it the 1.8?

    has the turbo rims, but not the turbo splitter though???

    The car was just under the £7k mark. Which I think is around the average for cars of this age and mileage. Yes, the exclusiv's were the last of the convertibles which have the 17" turbo alloys, two tone half leather interior and cruise control etc.

    I know the T cut thing isnt too good but I didnt know what else to use to get the scratches out and it did do the job not too badly. Just need to keep on top of it now with polishes and wax

    Any advice on other product and a better wax would be good.
