At Your Factor - Opel Astra K
Share:

Since the name was first introduced to Ireland in the early 1990’s, Astra has been synonymous with good value family motoring. Although Opel may no longer reach the top of the new car sale charts, the Astra has always sold in very significant numbers, with over eight and half thousand purchased as new between 2015 and 2022.  


Another important factor that independent garages will be only too aware of, are the huge number of Vauxhall badged versions of the Astra brought in from the UK, that continue to flood the used car market in the Republic. This adds many thousands to the Astra car parc and means it is one of the most common cars that independent garages will come across.

Many examples of the Astra, especially those imported, will now have clocked up significant mileage, so repairs to engine and suspension are more likely. Recognising this, the bilstein group offers a wide range of major repair parts through its febi and Blue Print brands. These include; Valve Cover with Vent Valve and Gasket, Control Arm with Bushes, Joint and Lock Nut, Timing Chain Kit and Wheel Bearing Kit.

The range also features all the required service parts, plus some key, more unusual, components that bilstein product experts have flagged as being in high demand such as; Xenon Headlight Ballast Thermostat with Housing and Sealing Ring and a much used Universal Clip.

The comprehensive range of febi and Blue Print parts for the Opel Astra K - 2015 – 2022 are available from stockists nationwide. Full details can be found at the Partsfinder online catalogue.
