  • Newbie with Astra VXR !!! (pics incl.)

    Morning people, this seems like a friendly site !

    I picked up my Astra VXR earlier this week, and so far i'm very impressed ! It's an 07 plate which has covered 11k

    I'm 23 and from Leeds. My car history isn't too impressive unfortunately, my last car was a clio 172, before that a Saxo VTS, and before that my first car was a corsa 1.4 sport... the astra seemed like the next logical choice... Veyron next though

    Well, here's some pics, let me know what you think.. it will only be a matter of time before i'm posting about how to upgrade the system, it's tinnier than a £10 decorators radio !

    Welcome to the site, astra looks well!

    It will be interesting to know what you end up doing with the system!

      Thanks ! I'm sure I read somewhere about a device which means you can run a nice setup from standard HU. I'm more bothered about sound quality than a sub with lights that flash to the music etc!

        Really? A device? That sounds interesting..

        SQ is important to me too. I wonder how good the Arctic's system will be.. I'm guessing it's the same in all VXRs?

          welcome buddy...

          the device you are talking about is the SOT by davedesign, there is a few threads about it on here.

                      Welcome and enjoy the ride!

                      With regards the sound system - yes, it may not be the best in the world, but I wouldnt go as far as to say it was tinny, however I suppose its all relative as a few ppl dont seemed to appreciate a Linn Sondek for example in a home system !?

                      One thing maybe worth checking just in case .... I assume the TREBLE setting isnt at FULL setting and the BASS at full neg' setting ?
