I'm after some help here. My mum has a 1999 S reg mk4 Astra 1.8 CDX auto in a rather unusual colour i think called antelope (she calls it diaper brown)
basically my query is that none of us find her car comfortable and the worst offender is the drivers seat. what i am wanting to know is, is there a way to fit mk 5 seats as i've tried the seats in a design and they are perfectly comfortable and also is there any form of after market suspension or standard suspension that can soften the ride abit.
if i cant find a way to soften it up for her i'll be putting a for sale thread for it but she's rather keep it as she likes the performance, economy, reliability and space it offers. only cars we've found that are nice enough is a 2001 corolla 1.6 vvti GLS auto and pug 307 1.6 auto and they are both alot slower.
btw, i'm called fordfan becuase the only vauxhall i've owned was a 2000 W vectra 1.8 CD and it was hard, uncomfortable, thirsty, slow, and had the handling prowess of the QE2. where as the 2 mondeos i've had have been better ownership experiences.
however i will concede the astra is very nice to drive but horrible to go long distance - not that we do often as have my mondeo and my dads audi A6 2.5TDi which is the worst car ever made
