  2. Any bodywork differences between SRI and SXI models?

    Astra H
    I’m trying to source a new door for my Astra H mk5 2007 SRI. I was just wondering if I could get a SXI door (of the same year ofc) instead as finding an SRI specific one is very hard. From what I’ve heard the appearance on both is pretty much the same.

    Astra Technical aka The Workshop
    Hi all, 2nd gear seems like it is getting stuck as it revs higher than normal before changing to third. It's very noticeable on a normal speed pull-off and even louder on a fast pull-off - it really screams. All other gear changes change as exepcted. Any ideas what the issue could be? Not taken...

    Hi all, I have a 2013 Astra recently purchased and noticed today when I’m accelerating at low to mid speeds there is a slight vibration coming from the dashboard/centre console area. It’s not terrible, but I noticed it today when I had the radio off and it’s bugging me a little. What do you...

I am not new to Astra's, in fact we have a trusty "G" estate for mobile dog kennel duties but our trusty 19 yr old Primera was reluctantly scrapped due only to emissions :@. However, the silver lining is in the happy purchase of our 2013 SRi 2.0 CDTi sports tourer...

    Astra J/GTC
    Hi everyone My 2010 Astra 1.6 turbo is showing signs of the dreaded bearing failure. About 1cm of movement in 1st and 5th, and whining/whirring in 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th when hot. I did a 200 mile trip yesterday and it sounded quite awful by the end of it. 35k miles, I'm rather cheesed off...

  19. Converting 5 door SRI to 5 door VXR

    Astra H
    Me and my brother think it could be a neat little project to turn the 1.6T SRI into a 1.6T VXR. Its not something ive really ever heard of before but its basically like a low insurance Corsa VXR with more space and five doors. Insurance would be its greatest feature for selling should i ever...
