    New Owner from Melbourne Australia

    My name is Brandon and I recently bought a rebadged Chevy Cruze Sedan......MY18 Auto Holden Astra Sedan LS+ Trim

    There is no new Astra community I have found in Australia but was able to find this which works great as the cars are nearly identical as far as I can tell.

    Will be mainly surfing car audio for the first bit but not a fan of the projector headlights so maybe a replacement of those in the future as well.

    The Aussie Astra is a badge-engineered Chinese-built Cruze, it's similar but not quite the same as the Chevrolet Cruze built in the USA/Mexico.

    There are many bits that look the same but aren't quite.

    That said, if you buy stuff online from alibaba/aliexpress and other Chinese sites if they say it fits the Chinese-built Cruze it should fit yours as well, but watch out for model year differences.

    Oh , and welcome, there's a handful of us Aussies on here, it's nice the have another from Melbn here
