Re: Maybe buying another Astra...

I've seen a few examples, but it's definitively harder. Any Astra under 100k miles, they're now asking over $5k.

Whereas in 2019 I could find them for under $3k for low mileage samples. I...

Re: Maybe buying another Astra...

I noticed that too around here in AL. On FB marketplace, several cars would stay advertised for months at high prices. I'm not even sure if they sell at all, I think some did though. I've seen a few...

Maybe buying another Astra...

Been thinking of getting another Astra. Nothing is wrong with mine, but miles are piling up (close to 190k currently). Though I've done quite a few repairs and maintenance. Having replaced the alt,...

Re: Availability of an Exhaust Manifold

I sent you a message the other day. You can get a far cheaper cat on ebay (around $75-140). The german one I got has worked pretty well, but it's only good if you plan to do some performance upgrades...

Re: Won't Turn Over II

As astrafasta said. You could have gotten a defective starter. In my case I had to replace the alternator three times in a row!!

First alternator off autozone lasted a month or two, and then...

Those would be worth checking out. Specially the throttle response!

Re: Adding Sport Button to Opel

What does the sport button do to our cars? Does it tune the ECM to improve performance?

Re: I need a 2nd opinion on this Astra

In the US, these Auras and the XR 18s are the best looking options out there. They even have the same aura rims across the pond, but only in 17" size, so our 18" Aura rims would be very unusual in...

Re: I need a 2nd opinion on this Astra

I've been trying to find 18" rims in Europe for over a year. I've used ebay.es, ebay.de and ebay.co.uk (you can use the same US login btw) and the main problem I've had is sellers willing to ship,...

Re: Hello! New Astra owner - upgrading to OPC

Pics of the SRi top spoiler, and bottom rear bumper lip with my custom "Peugeot 308 GTI" peelable rattle can paint job. :D

I'm thinking of removing the paint to reveal the lip and spoiler better,...

Re: P065E code coming up again.

Let us know how it goes! I found a flex pipe on ebay for around 70 bucks, and I'm planning to get it. Mine doesn't smoke or anything, but these things are so prone to break.

Re: P065E code coming up again.

I think that may very well be the issue you're having! The flex pipe is very prone to break. I'm replacing mine as preventantive maintenance.

Was the seafom dripping from the upper connection or...

Re: P065E code coming up again.

If you want to do it yourself, you'll need an EVAP machine like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/174768594084

there are cheaper ones, and some going for 20 bucks, but those are junk (tried one...

Re: Installed window shades on the XE5

Paul, is part number 93199087 GM 93199087, for the rear sunshade or the rear side doors? Looks great on yours! I'm thinking of getting one.

Re: Bumper replacement

I have a pic of the crash bar in my NA Astra, and compared it with an euro one on a video in youtube, and our crash bars are definitively deeper. So, I reckon if one wanted to get a euro rear bumper...

Re: Hello! New Astra owner - upgrading to OPC

It's been a while since my last update.


Got a few more upgrades on the way here, and some already installed. I ordered a diesel snorkel part 55351756 (same as the VXR but cheaper!) to...

Re: Bumper replacement

I'm in the process of installing the lower rear bumper spoiler (the one the SRi has) and I noticed that our stinking bumpers are wider as the lip skirt wouldn't completely fit without some modding. ...

Re: Bumper replacement

Re: Saw another Astra today...

I saw two here in Alabama a few weeks ago. The first one was a 4dr XR model. I waved at them, and they waved back lol.

The next one was a blue XR coupe that looked in great shape.
