Hi people I'm new to this site and have a question that I hope someone can shed some light on for me. I brought a 2008 5 door astra h sri xp 1.6 turbo with 67,000 miles that is well equipped from factory which includes panoramic roof,full leather interior,satellite navigation, integrated hands free phone connection, afl lights,power folding mirrors,auto lights/wipers, washer jets for headlights. Now I know this car is rare but I've never seen another one this well equipped. Can anybody shed some light on just how rare this car is for me please I.e how many are left on the road and how rare this spec is. I'm currently rebuilding the engine from the bottom/up as it had bent a con rod ( piston no.1) lol. Look forward to talking.
Many thanks

Well, I would say it's rare, I haven't seen a astra with a sunroof, apart from the film "Transformers" but never with all the gadgets,
It would of been a show/press car or a person who ticked every single option when they ordered the car.

Hi there thanks for your response!!!
I think you are right! The motor company that I brought it from did say that it had £5,000 worth of extras when brought new and like I say I have never seen one before with this kind of spec. I've been trying to find out information about it but no joy!
I just hope someone on this site can point me in the right direction or shed some light on it
Many thanks

normally any astra h sri xp has got lower part of front n rear bumper and boot spoiler

only elite top of the range spec from the factory fitted power folding mirrors,auto lights/wipers and full leather interior,satellite navigation...most parts can be retrofit afl light, sat nav, full leather , folding wing mirror and headlight washer jets..i have seen another astra h with sunroof is on design spec

does it have cruise control fitted? cruise control is on end of the indicator stalk

my astra h estate club 2008.. i retrofit cruise control, trip computer GID display and sport button n reprogram it

i would say this astra well equipped... normally astra h sri dont have power folding mirrors,auto lights/wipers and full leather interior,satellite navigation

My Sri has leather and sight and light from new, no xp kit tho, seen a few with panoramic roofs but not common place, never seen 1 with a sunroof tho! Easiest way to check how it left the factory is to get a spec sheet, I believe @valer can get that

If your on facebook join the astra h owners, the 1.6 turbos are rare cars, an especially with the sunroof, and xp kit, based on the mileage and condition about 3000
