2008 Astra XR
Default 2008 astra xr parts for sale

Good day,

First off, I'd like to thank the members of this forum for the years of information and discussions regarding the Astra. It's come time to sell my reliable Astra after owning it for 10 years. This coupe has managed to hit just under 300,000kms on the original engine and 5 speed transmission.

During my 10 years of ownership, I actually purchased a second Astra with 197,000kms on it as a parts car.

The reason for my post today is because I'm wondering if anyone still has an Astra that they're trying to maintain and keep alive. I currently have many parts available for sale, from wiring harnesses, sensors, the engine and transmission, tail / headlights, fenders, interior trim pieces etc.

If anyone is looking for anything, feel free to send me a message. I'd love to set someone up from this forum with parts that may be hard to come by, at low costs vs. dealerships to keep their vehicle going. If noone is interested, these parts will be given to whomever purchases this vehicle from me.

Thanks!

...

Mmm...

Interesting idea. I'm down in McKellar on Hwy 124. Pondering what little goodies you might have. Not looking for a whole car though.

Car has been incredibly reliable after its initial fix-up. Get paranoid if I read these forums to often.

Passenger side heated mirror? The silvering has eaten away to almost nothing. Feel in good company, saw a BMW the other day, both mirrors were eaten. Are they even interchangeable between a XR and an XE?

I should clarify, I have one complete car for sale, but also have an entire second car in parts available except for the chassis and the doors as I stripped everything out of it and stored for future repairs if needed.

As for the mirrors, I had issues with the glass falling out and ended up purchasing glass replacements from ebay. I do have the mirror assembly without the mirror in it available for both sides.

How much would you want for taillights, c-pillars, rear parcel shelf and front door cards(assuming you had a 3dr)? I've got a small stock pile of parts in my house already but mostly from mods

It occurred to me while driving down, around, and back from the City yesterday, having "low washer fluid level" displayed for 90% of the trip. Do you have an OEM radio? I bought my car with an aftermarket radio. I quickly discovered its impossible to do anything to/with the centre console display.

You can get the connect2 adapter which allows the use of the steering wheel controls on the OEM display. I have my aftermarket radio wired in with it which also allows me to control the radio with for volume and track.

I'm looking to get some 19" wheels so if those are 18" I won't be bothering with them but it seems the OP hasn't even responded to anyone yet.

Thanks for the heads up on the Connects2 adapters.

Considering the overwhelming number of adapters they have, can you say what the model was and I can go from there.

Sorry for the late reply, it's been busy with Christmas just around the corner. They are 18" rims
