    Newbie from Ireland!

    Recently signed up here as I'm now back in an Astra for the first time in 3 years!
    Previously had an Astra G 1.4 5 door a few years back and also had a 5 door Corsa B. Currently I've got a 3 door Corsa B fitted with a c16se and my latest purchase an Astra Coupe Turbo that I picked up last week.
    Absolutely delighted with the Coupe so far and I wanted one for years while I was driving a couple of diesel saloons
    The current plans for the Coupe are to give it a general tidy up, which includes the original rear lights being fitted(got a set sourced but have to wait 2 weeks until I pick them up), and lower it, probably on coilovers.
    Anyway here's a few pics of the Coupe, the Corsa and my older Astra...

    Alright Dave, good to see your good self here!!
    Really looking forward to seeing your own coupe at a meet too soon, absolutely stunning looking car IMO

    Don't think I'll do too much to alter the look of the Coupe other than lower it and possibly some different wheels in the future, although I really like the standard wheels on it now! So far I've just fitted the German style plates and Alpine head unit as I needed my ipod! I'll probably remove the turbo badge from the rear to keep it looking subtle, and I was never really a fan of the font they used on the badge at any rate!
    It needs a bit of tidying up on the bodywork with a few small dents to be removed and possibly respray the front bumper as they're are some stone chippings on it. Inside the centre console needs some work, the original "silver" finish on the plastics wasn't very robust to wear and tear over the years and looks fairly rough. Might pick up another one and spray is either silver or gloss black myself.
