    Hello!

    Hi my name is Kev & I live in the UK.

    I am one of the owners of the UK Mk3 Astra Owners Club (http://www.mk3oc.com/forum/) and currently have a Mk3 Astra or Astra F with a Saab turbo engine fitted nicknamed "The Financial Mistake" (for obvious reasons!)

    I am a long time lurker but thought I would say hi Click here to enlarge



    If anyone needs help with parts etc I can assist as I currently ship things world wide and to Oz alot for a friend and my brother in Brisbane so let me know!

    Kev

    I currently run Gaz adjustable shocks with Eibach springs. Really the front springs are not hard enough so upgrading to mk4 gsi lowering springs as they are harder poundage springs.

    Brakes wise I am on mtec 308mm discs with yellow stuff pads. Ok for now but I hate EBC products. These where cheap mind you

    Fill the wheel well
