    Newbie once more

    Hi, my workmate and astra h owner recommended AOC to me, I've just taken the plunge and purchased an '03 Europa blue Astra Coupé Turbo, with the intention of holding onto it for a while, at least a couple of years, as I've been chopping and changing my cars for the past few years, to the disgust of my girlfriend and to the detriment of my bank account.

    It's currently standard apart from a Bailey DV and airbox mod, so expect to see me regularly posting stupid questions and recieving warnings for not searching old threads before asking tired old questions that had been answered years ago!

    As soon as it's in respectable shape to have pics taken of it, can't do it justice at the minute, it needs some bits an bobs tidying on it. I suppose I could do a 'before and after' thing though.

    It's probably the best car I've owned, I'm only a few days into ownership right enough, but it feels quicker than anything else I've owned, octavia vrs and diesel fabia vrs included. I'm planning on lowering on coilovers, sticking new wheels on it, and then adding little bits and bobs to it (bonnet lifters and the like) and that'll be about it, don't want to go overboard.
