Picked up the new car yesterday and have given it a good clean today.
No. 98 of 100. T8 Astra 1.9 CDTi.
Very happy with it and its put a smile back on my face after selling the Corsa.
So some pictures of it.

Only thing i'm not keen on is the front mount being on show so much, needs grill putting back in. Oh and de-wiper the rear, it will look much smoother

The fmic sits really far forward because of the aircon rad etc, as its really tight behind there. The aircon rad had to be moved backwards slightly so that the bumper wasn't butchered but the grill wouldn't go back on.

I will eventually look at a way of getting a lower grille back on there somehow or paint it black so it dont stand out so much.

At least it sits central and level tho.



The Mrs has told me I'm not to use the sport button when she is in the car.
Shes says it is the route to all things that are evil!

Grilles will stay as it is except trying to get something sorted to cover the fmic.

I would like to get a pre cat decat thingy but not just yet.

The map is still the standard 888/Thurlby one, whoever done it.
Smokes as much as they normally do in sport mode(which is quite abit), none in normal mode.

I will probably be just leaving as it is for the next couple of years, then maybe fiddle with it.
I've got a wedding to pay for next year.

Cant wait for Combe in April to try it out in proper anger.
Should be fun.
