    My 2002 Astra Coupe 1.8

    Hi all

    I picked up my astra coupe 2002 1.8 on 31st March. Loving the car had it for just under a week and it has been washed 3 times. Here are a few pics...

    There are a few issues:

    1) drivers seat is very squeaky
    2) centre console is mis-matched (see pics)
    3) windscreen is chipped in several places (noticed this on saturday)
    4) fag lighter not working
    5) engine cover has writting on it (possible replacement from breakers yard)

    But apart from those small issues I love the car to bits!!!

    nice coupe, centre console can be painted, check the wiring and fuse for the lighter and as for the writting on the engine cover, try and find some upvc cleaner, dissolving stuff works the best

    Nice looking Coupe there and in very good condition too, clean and tidy
    Welcome to the club

    As long as the chips are not huge, and interfer with your line of vision when driving should be ok, if they seem big maybe get them repaired/sealed?
    WD40 the springs on the seat or something, might help it.
    No pics of interior, so cant tell about your centre console, but maybe nice lil project there to spray it all the same colour?
    If its just the light in the fag lighter, might just blown and needs replacing, very quick job.
    Engine Cover with the writing on might be done by the owner or a garage or breakers so they remember the engine code for the 1.8
    Disclaimer - some of the above text may actually be sarcasm (believe it or not!)

    Thanks for the welcome guy..

    Here is the missing pic of the interior



    Will get some WD40 on the seat tonight when I get back from work and get the wirtting cleaned of the engine.

    There is 1 chip right in my field of vision and it looks to be about 10mm long, but MOT is not due till Jan 2011. I will try and spray the console (but I ain't that good at sparying) but for the moment I have applied carbon fiber vinal to the console but only to the bits where the hand brake, gearstick and below the ashtray and the fag lighter.

    But I may just buy the whole centre console and console parts in black. It did have a CD holder but the was so badly scratched it had to go and replaced it with the compartment holder in the pic which is abit more usefull.

    But will be doing a few cheap modes, orderd badgeless grill and gonna put bonnet lifters on, de-restrict airbox and get hold of a vectra airpipe and install that!

    The centre console is either silver or bronze on the coupes as standard, but scratches real easy and looks a bit dated. Most owners paint them the same colour of their car.

    The writing on the engine means nothing as by the looks of it the engine is the xe1xe1 coupe?? not a z18xe... mabey mistaken!.. spray of the wd40 on the runners of the seat will sort out the squeaking, and try fuse in cig lighter,failing that a cheap on from scrappy will sort it out.
