2008 Astra XR
Default New here! Just checking in!

My wife and I just purchased our 2008 Astra 3dr a few days ago! As you can see by the cars in my signature I tend to drive the "not so common" cars. We bought this to save me a little money on gas, be a little more dependable, and to have something newer. I used to DD the 540i and will still drive it but it has 264K miles and I'm trying to give it a little break!

So far, I like the Astra! The one-off style attracted me to them! I've always had a thing for driving cars that not every one else has! My first car was a 1974.5 VW Scirocco so the "Euro" kind of look this thing has sorta reminds me of it! You might guess I know how to work on cars! I have built a few street rods and done complete frame-offs on several different cars!

I plan on doing a few things to it. I have already ordered an armrest! I need to find the best way to adapt an iPod, looking at the Dice universal unit since I have a Dice Mediabridge in my 540 and I love it! I will probably lower it also!

Anyway, I hope everything with the car goes well! I have had some bad luck with newer cars...even had one go back on a Lemon Buy Back once! I answer most of my questions by searching so I probably won't post a lot but do try to answer questions if I can.

Thanks, Chuck.
