Hi Daniel -

Welcome to GS! I like your Astra. Was the mini-spoiler part of the original car or is it aftermarket? I really like the hatchback/wagon spoilers that extend the roofline out.

Is that little "black knob" near the rear hatch the antenna? If yes, then I think I think you have a motorized antenna.

Are those 14" or 15" wheels? I ask because your steel wheels give you the option of snap-on racing disks.

Hello CarlosSW2!

Yes, the mini-spolier is part of the original car. I do have a motorized antenna, but the rubber knob is deteriorating and I'll have to replace it soon. My Astra has 14" wheels and honestly I wasn't aware of that option! Thank you for telling me!

(Sorry for my rusty/inadequate english )


Some pictures of my Astra:

Ya, know, there have been some small diesels here. Tempo diesel, Rabbit diesel, Dasher diesel, blah, blah. Maybe one of those would help you with your diesel jones? :-)
