    Default Coming Back to VX

    Well - just been informed that I will be driving a Vauxhall again from next week . Company making another change to the company car list. Only had the current one for 9 months. Tax is due at end of month - thought new car was a bit OTT

    Means that I can get rid of the dreaded Ford Focus - not a vectra unfortunaly - an Astra this time...... Not driven one before

    Are the front bulbs easy to change on an Astra - the Vectra has tricky but not impossible........ Will be car 6 for the good old Philips Diamondvisions...... Good thing about the focus was you could do all bulbs, left and right in under 5 mins

    No, you need to take the bumper off unless you're built like twiggy and get your paw through the tiny flap in the inner wheel arch. You can only change the dip bulbs through that hatch too - you MUST remove the lights to replace the indicators, the beam and side lights.

    It's not difficult to do, though, 4 screws, 6 clips, pull off bumper, 3 bolts and the lighting unit comes out.

    Astra is OK, I had a Sporthatch but was never really comfortable with or in it, only kept it 8 months. It was a top spec Design with the 1.9CDTi chipped to 200hp too. I had 2 Mk4s which I had for 18 months and 2 yrs respectively before the Mk5.
