    Some photos of my Astra

    Just thought it was about time to post some pics on here of my astra.

    Its a 2002 (52) 1.8litre, SRi, 5 door astra G in Prestige Metallic blue. Its done 74000miles and since i have only bought i recently it is pretty much standard.

    The garage that it was bought from was asking for £3000 for it, I traded in my 2003 (03), 1.0litre nissan micra e and got £2500 for it and put £500 cash with it for the Astra.

    What do you guys think of the car?









    Cheers, Kev.

    Bet it packs a fair punch compared to the old nissan micra! Having said that, my mate had a 1.0 litre L reg nissan micra - no power steering (proper shed) and it was rapid! :|

    Looks well.

    If your not wanting to shell out on colour coding bump strips, just remove them with a little heat from a hairdryer and polish up underneath....

    Though i havent asked anyone about this yet so dont know how it looks, but its an idea.

    See youve also got the 1.8 meaning your 5 stud with discs all round. When i bought my 1.6 i didnt realise that id only have drums on back and 4 stud when the 1.8 had discs all round.
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!

    more expensive to remove the strips, as would have to weld plates over the holes in the doors! plus gettting it made right and paint works out cheaper to colour code

    The back lights arent tinted. Wish they were though.

    yeh i do have plans to mod it. Next plans are:
    • Lowered,
    • colour coded,
    • some 17" black SRI-Ts,
    • some blacked out angel headlights,
    • lexmaul recessed grille,
    • New cybox exhaust system,
    • rear tinted lights.

    Probably make a start on these in the new year as im strapped for cash with shelling out for the car. First mod (when i come across a set) is the SRI-Ts and the lexmaul grille.

    By the way can I ask as im confused a little,

    What is valeting a car? Thought it was when some guy jumps in and parks it for you? lol

    Cheers, Kev.
