r u about?
sorry....looks too japanese for me, but then again all new stuff is starting to look the same, all you do is go to dealer & tell them what colour you want & what badge you want on it because they are all now made by computer lol
I just saw a 3 door last Friday. I must say it looks really good. I want one. Pity I can't afford it and a pity they won't be out for a while. Incase anyone wants to know where I saw it it was a demonstration car that some of the garages over here have and it was drving past where I work.
I lioke the astra mk5 i saw one at the motor sport show a couple of weeks bck its really nice. specially the 3 door version in red
I`ve had 1 for 4 months now, 1.8 Sri in Silver, nice car well built, handles well but cant compare it to the coupe
Life in the fast lane
Faster and Better version of www.astra-sport.co.uk now on-line.
Would like to know what you think of 1.8 engine. I've got 1.6 Design and think it needs more power as it's just as heavy as my Audi Coupe and that's got 175bhp!
Shame the engine choice wasn't mine as needed an auto and went for Easytronic instead of slush box.... Roll on the 2.0 Turbo Easytronic!
Any other Mk5 owners out there? Shall we start a meet on our own? lmao lmao
When the money's right I'll buy a VXR
-40mm standard would be nice
I've definatley changed my mind now that I've played with the car in photoshop and realised it has serious modding possibilies.
best looking in its class,not that that means much.
if modded right it could look ok ish
I like it a lot..so much in fact i've traded in my 5 month old CTR for the 2ltr SRi turbo 200bhp version..looks real nice with the 18's and kit
vectra interior,yaris back lights, i do like the front of it and the wheels if i had one the back lights would come off if i was going to update my mark 4 i would wait until a few years for the price to come down and get a 3 door fast model
mk5 ,not good im afraid
Bought a 1.6 16v astra club with easytronic gearbox in Jan 2005, must admit i've only done around 2500 miles or so it it but i'm impressed so far for sure yeah the gearbox can sometimes have it's quirks (loss in power etc) but overall even before I started modding the body etc it still looks the dogs B******** lmao
I'm new to this but have a 7 month old astra 1.8SRi. I'm having loads of problems with it, ABS light on, cruise control not working, alarm going off, not starting and engine management light flashing, fuel warning light not reading correct, radio not working and flat spot on initial pull away. All of these faults are very intemittent, but nontheless iritating. Dealer cant trace any of the faults as they are intemittent.
Has anyone had similar experiences or can offer any help
Did you buy it from a Citroen dealer by any chance ? lmao
( I'll be sticking with my Cav TD...minimal electronics, maximum reliability )
Have you ever tried to exchange a headlightbulb on one of them MK5īs....
Well it will be fun when snow hits us..
i think the mk5 looks really good
i think its stunning, any 1 who says the older ones are nicer is derranged they are all plain and ugly sorry but its just jelousy in my opinon, new one is better made, better to drive, handles better......... need i go on, doesnt look anythin like megane or golf or almera either, its by far the nicest new car about.
sorry mate the mk1 was nice but mk2's were pure cr*pOriginally Posted by Scottish Nutter
Well as an owner of one of these little 5-door Turbo versions in South Africa, I'm more than happy with my car... bought it for an everyday commuter with go, so it'll get some small mods and a Steinmetz kit later on. Should look something like this.

Opel Astra H 3-door hatch with Z20LEH turbo - OPC
You call it VXR, I call it Oh Pee Cee Ya Later! :D
I have 2004 Club Turbo diesel, it was good at first it turned heads but now its becoming run of the mill. Good styling, excellent performance, 6 points to prove it! But the interior is poorly designed, no storage space, no cup holders, sun catches your eyes even with the sun visors down out of the corners and from the rear mirror gaps. I have an Audi A3 (wife does) and thatís been well thought-out for long distant driving something Vauxhall need to learn.
we just got one cuz my mum crashed the cityrover lol courtasy carlmao
I once was mr-omega
add me if needing help
Just another mid size hatch for me
if i was getting a car like this i would be haveing a trip to ford and VW first
BMW sell out :)
