    Hi, new person needing some helpp :)

    Hi there

    My names Luke Fuller, im 17 and from Watford/herts.

    Bought my Astra H/mk5 yesterday

    Black, 05 plate, Sxi sporthatch, 1.6, 55k

    £5200

    im very happy with it. massive difference to my old shitty 1.1 peugeot 106!! ahah.

    i havent got any pics atm, but ill get some tomorrow

    Plans for it are just little things like..
    i think they are sri? wheels. yano the star ones? maybe sprayed black with white/coloured lip.
    checkerboard roof ....still deciding on that one.
    slightly tinting windows.
    Maybe twin exhaust.

    Im not really too clued up on them atm but ill read and learn quickly

    Couple questions though;
    - Can remaps be done on 1.6sxi? and what are the rough power gains?
    - Can the dashboard centre display unit be changed for the one with satnav etc?

    i think there all the questions i have atm...

    any help is much appreciated.

    anybody have and little tip/tricks/information/common faults/what to look out for/be carfule of/ or anything i should know etc?

    Thankyou
    LukeJamesFuller.

    the answer to both questions above is:
    Yes you could remap it but there is no point and will cost a fortune for little bhp return.

    Yes you can get sat nav installed in the centre console

    Im sure a mk5 owner will help you with your last question

    oh really?

    well what engine modifications can be done?

    im guessing air-filter,manifold, exhaust?

    i looked for the sat nav thing, but im looking for the 'computer thing' that come on the very high spec models? possibly in the vxr, im not too sure, im still learning all this stuff you see ahah

    Welcome to AOC fella....

    I live just outside Watford, you may have seen my car around......

    Engine mods, de-restrict the airbox, k&n panel filter and an exhaust will get you started......

    Oh......get some pics up too

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    Hi, welcome to the club!

    Pics are a must!

    Am interested in reading about a sat nav install for the centre console!
