    Some astra vans have rear seats fitted.

    But I would assume your insurer would take the mods into account a hike up your premium.

    if you put seats in etc might put teh price of insurance up

    damn too slow

    Enough to make it uneconimical, otherwise everyone would be doing it.

    Never heard of anyone actually doing it for financial purposes so I can only assume it is not on.

    Phone your insurance up tomorrow and ask them (boy I wish I could record that phone call) :w00t:

    thought the 1.4 ould be better lol its like 10 quid more to insure, i bet its faster too lol

    Well no joke, you struggle to get the diesel over 70. Complete culture shock for me as i've got a 1.8 Zetec that goes 0-60 in no time flat pmsl.

    Thank god for that! seriously though mate, nice thinking on the van as first motor for insurance, expect to be pulled a lot at night in it though, young lad-van looks dodgy to the law (the suspicious gits), when I drove the works van at night as a young un I got pulled a few times.

    work had an astra van a few years back with back seats that folded flat

    A mattress would be a good investment for your mates and if you get 'lucky' on friday/saturday nights:whistling:
