    Hi I'm New

    Just thought I would say Hello, and introduce myself. Im Toni a 21 year old student from sunny southend (well it is at the moment, sunny myself here in the garden) and I work part-time for RBS. I am studying BA Hons Early Years Education, and I want to be a teacher, just finishing year 2 now.

    I recently bought an Astra Coupe Turbo, real impulse buy. I have a VW Golf GTI at the moment, but had decided I wanted a coupe next, but I was aiming for 2 years down the line, lol, but it came up good price ans good car.

    Its a 51 plate, red in colour, wierd red but lovely. 51,000 miles, 2 owners from new, FSH, a couple of minor body bits, and will need an exhaust soon, but I'll be changing that anyway so didnt matter to me.

    She is completely standard but have a few things in the pipeline, first things first, I want to get the few body bits sorted, then dump valve, wheels, exhaust and suspension. Also going to get her remapped for £250 and the guys thinks that will add 35 BHP.

    Only just took these pics in this lovely weather:













    The few little bits:



    Hopefully this one I can get out myself, Im a whiz with scratches, got lots out on my dads :-)



    Don't know if you can really see this, there is a scratch about 1" long





    This is the worst bit, as its sracthed deep into the bumper



    The interior is black leather and in mint condition, the only bug bare with the interior is the centre consol looks like a dog has chewed it, where someone has taken the stereo out of it, god knows what they use but its awful, so gotta get a new on of them, but they dont seem to be expensive off ebay.

    Hope you all like, it was a steal at only £3000! hehe

    Hello and welcome, I believe that colour may be called Chianti (could be wrong).

    Nice Coupe

    I've read that the Zlet doesn't run as well with a dump valve fitted but another Turbo owner may be able to advise further.
