    Default upgraded from astra 'H' to astra 'J'

    hi all,

    Had the astra VXR j for a few weeks but just managed to take a photo.
    I have traded in the Astrs VXR 'H' -




    and bought the arden blue astra VXR 'J' -



    The J is a significantly better car with the better suspension and steering. Not sure how much this has been upgraded but it has the Sat NAv and the carbon mud flaps. Other than that not sure.

    cheers

    Phil

    Very Nice mate. Great that it came with the carbon mudflaps
    Other factory extras could be infinity sound system, parking sensors, full leather heated seats, dual climate control. You got any of those?
    Brembo writing looks a little faded on yours but mine was when I bought it, you can get the overlay sticker for it for a fiver. Would definitely recommend it.
    Anyway Enjoy the car!

    Came with full leather heated seats but not sure about sound system. Has a 950 fitted with DAB. Love the seat adjustment but not used heating yet ! I have had a quote for rear parking sensors - £350 at local garage that fitted out the red H. Sounds dear so may ring Perry Vauxhall to see what they would quote. Update- Perry's charge £240 so will be taking it in there!

    is the Astra j vxr much better than the H?
    is it worth the finance?
    is it much quicker?

    About the quicker part. Having driven one I was unimpressed with the power, but I was stage 3 on my h so I was always going to. Once mapped though I've no doubt they will be a different beast and obviously they have more potential than an h with much fewer mods.
