    If it's the old shape then it's definitely an Astra H, otherwise known as a Mk5. So when you're buying parts you'll want to look for stuff for a "2004-2010" model. Your engine is a Z20LEH.

    We need pictures!
    Pretty sure the last Astra H VXRs were on a 60 plate?

    Did Preston to Barnsley and back over the weekend and got 36.7 mpg. Better than expected ! Drove at 60-65 due to above average road works !
