2008 Astra XR

I may not be the last Astra owner, but my mechanic skills are growing along with the car, so I'm hoping to break 200k.

I'm sure the end for me will come when parts become too impossible to find, although I've been having really good luck with a place in Europe with a decent website and $35 shipping to the US. I'd say where it is but I don't want to be accused of trying to sell anything with my first post. Ask me if interested.

I'd love to hear what everyone's criteria would be for when to let their Astra go.
I am new as well just bought a 2008 Astra XR with 166KM really just for a fun project car no idea what the color name is kind of a metallic beige?

Interior is in good shape but the exterior is in bad need of detailing which I have an appt tomorrow.

The passenger side rear tail light is cracked still works but looks bad because of the moisture/condensation inside the assembly...I managed to find one off ebay in Kentucky of all places but shipping North of the border ain't cheap so would be interested in alternate parts sources.

2008 Astra XE
Default Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

Don't ask why I remember such minutia, but I believe that color was called "sandstone". Nice color and not all that common.

Congrats on the purchase!
