Are you sure your code is p0003.I checked all the codes and there is no p0003.Do you mean p0300.This is a misfire code.Also how many miles on your vehicle.If it has under 36k then it is still under warranty and the dealership will repair it under warranty at no charge to you.Let me know.

SOURCE: mk5 astra 0130 fault code
DTC P0130 - 02 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank I Sensor 1)
The O2 sensor produces a voltage based on oxygen content in the exhaust. The voltage varies between .1 and .9 Volts, .1 indicating lean and .9 indicating rich.
The ECM constantly monitors this voltage while in closed loop to determine how much fuel to inject. If the ECM determines that the O2 sensor voltage was too low (less than .4 Volts) for too long (for more than 20 seconds (time varies with model)), this code is set.
Depending if the problem is intermittent or not, there may be no symptoms other than MIL (malfunction indicator lamp) illumination. If the problem is constant, then symptoms may include one or more of the following:
Engine runs rough, missing or stumbling
Blows black smoke from tail pipe
Poor fuel economy
Usually the cause of P0130 is a bad oxygen sensor, however this isn't always the case. If your o2 sensors haven't been replaced and they are old, it's a good bet that the sensor is the problem. But, It could be caused by any of the following:
Water or corrosion in the connector
Loose terminals in the connector
Wiring burnt on exhaust components
Open or short in the wiring due to rubbing on engine components
Holes in exhaust allowing unmetered oxygen into exhaust system
Unmetered vacuum leak at the engine
Bad o2 sensor
