    hello from brucey106's brother from the same mother

    hi newbie here saying hello
    my name is kev and im the brother of brucey106 if any of you remember him?
    ive not had a vaux for about 6 years but i did meet a few of you at a rolling road day at courtenays where some of you laughed at my volvo lol.

    i have just picked up a 02 plate astra turbo convertible for the better half to learn in (honest its not for me) but its a little slow me thinks hence why im here in other words i will prob mostly be trawling through old threads and looking at the for sales and i hope that theres plenty of clueded up people for when i run into problems.

    kev

    ps im supprised that vxl was not taken!

    Welcome to Aoc, theres plenty of clued up people on here mate if you have any issues.

    The Cabs are a quite a bit heavier, may be why its slower than you thought it'd be? Or is REALLY REALLY slow?
    For free hugs PM me.

    For sex, pm cabriomatt.

    i went on a road trip with him the other week in it and its not that bad you just need ear plugs lmao but whilst we were on the road trip we met up with a mate of ours who has a corsa let and after an hour of mouching around leicester in it he was searching ebay for another vaux! but it didnt last long as he is thinking of spending more than the clio is worth on one engine mod!

    he needs to be shown the light you cant beat a vaux for cheap parts!

    cheers for the welcome i guess its not that slow but my last vaux was a cav sri with a c20let and the z-lets dont seem to have the whole turbo put you in your seat thing going on.

    do you know the difference in weights for a mk4 hatch coupe and a cab?

    Hi and welcome to AOC.

    Along with Glacious, I know who brucey is, only met him once at a meet though! Will be good if you could come along to meets, be nice to have a convertible in the region ... think we have plenty enough coupes now
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    I cant remember exactly but one of my mates has 1.8 cab and other has a normal 1.8 and we looked it up a few weeks ago and i think it was at least 150kgs heavier. But dont quote me on that.
