Hello, Ive just recently bought my Astra (2weeks ago) i previously had a Corsa C, i will upload a picture so you can see, hope to learn a few things from you all and maybe get into little mods, all i want to do for now is a sound system, i already have components just wanting a pioneer headunit and slim sub for the boot, i have an idea in mind like but will have to save up a few ££ to get it to how i want it :)

Anyway heres the Corsa C i used to own:





And here is the Astra:

Cheers for all the positive comments :) Corsa was a nice car, had loads done to the interior but just don't have any decent pictures of that on my computer, ill upload a few f people are interested like but its a corsa at the end of the day haha, got a few little more ideas for the astra but wont really effect the look of it how it is as im not that interested on kitting it up like i did my corsa, as im more for the fuel economy now haha turned from a young petrol head to an old fuel saving man in less than 2 weeks haha!

I think the kit and the Penta's will be a go ahead, but for now im just going to do the littel things, its how i started out doing the corsa, but like you say the number plate bulbs are much better!

Cheers Carl :) hows your car doing now?

Just a quick update for anyone that is interested, i will be buying a DTUK Green Tuning box sometime this week or next, so that will tick off a point on the to do list, i also had a tyre blow out on Thursday night passenger side :/ scared the hell out of me like but its all fine now as i got 2 new tyres after been advised the drivers side was getting low, so i thought best off getting both done! set me back a fair few bob!

Other than that the last thing i did was top up with diesel.

Ill update when the next thing happens :)

Cheers Carl, Ive bought the DTUK tuning box now just waiting for it to arrive then i will be fitting straight away XD, yeah its a bit of a bummer about the blow out but then again glad it happened the way it did and it went a good time! got the tyres sorted out now so that's a peace of mind sorted! Soon will be the XP kit and then maybe go back to what i originally had planned.... a stereo system but its not fully needed yet to me haha i can put up with the standard 1 for now :)
