2008 Astra XR
2008 Astra XE
Default Just bought my second astra

I own two of these. XE 5 door, and XR 3 door (The GTC models). I traded in a black Opel Antara Redline.




I want to make them look like Opels. So my quest begins. I'm from Macedonia, I used to own a 1.6l diesel Astra (crap engine in the winter, oil leakage all over the place but I loved it).

Wow, I thought I was the only one with 2 astras. These make for my 3rd saturn. Are you doing any Opel or Vauxhall conversions?

Actually it used a Honda engine; odd decision from GM seeing as how they had perfectly good V6s in-house they could have used instead of outsourcing it. Regardless, nothing special for me anyway, not a big fan of SUVs here.

Actually the second-gen 2008+ VUE XR V6 and Red Line used the GM 3.6L DOHC V6 and that is the generation similar to the Antara. The Honda 3.5L V6 was only used for 2004-07 V6 models.
