  • Another New Car

    As a few of you know ive had Vauxhalls as company cars for a good few years but Vauxhall have put the Monthly charges up by £75 so i would be paying £4000 a year for a car i'll never own
    Ive still got my Vectra B SRi as daily run around so been looking for a new toy these last few weeks.
    Got an Astra G GSi today in Black, 49k & one lady owner from new (2 miles from me)



    Its 100% totaly original & has some nice options which she ordered from new inc Climate Control, CCR 600 Audio with Glove box mounted CD Player & full Leather Recaro trim but in the rare option of Red & Black with Red Seatbelts (ive never seen another GSi with this trim)




    Car needs a good polish & all 4 alloys need a refurb due to her parking .
    Having a new Timing belt, Water pump ect this week. Well pleased with this.

          Was that on Autotrader? I saw that and thought that is rare with that interior and wondered if it had been retrimmed?

              It was on Autotrader Chris.
              The Woman bought it new from Lookers in Ellesmere Port in 2003, then part exed it the end of July back there. She lives 2 miles from me & just used it as a standard car to potter round in .
              The interior trim for the GSi was standard Half Leather or the option of Full Black Leather on all 4 colours or Red & Black Leather on the Silver, Red & Black cars only. Even the front & Rear seat belts are Red
              It was also an option on the Zafira GSi but again ive never seen it, only in Brochures so i think its quite a rare interior. Its almost the same as the Astra Linea Rossa SE Coupe models

                  Well done Sean, what a find, the car looks great and black is a good colour (i might be predudice on that though).
                  The old dear who had it certainly appears to have looked after it.

                            Cheers everyone.
                            Spent a few hours today with a clay Bar getting all the tar spots ect off.
                            Want to spend a few days giving it a full valet as it does have one or two car park dings plus get some leather feed on the seats. Its going A&M conversions this week for a new cam belt, pulleys, waterpump, oil change, new plugs ect to start with then in a few weeks im going for a full Milltek Exhaust with sport cat.
                            Next job is getting the alloys refurbished.
                            After that i'll let Antonio work his magic with an intercooler, VXR Turbo & injectors, 1.9CDTi airbox conversion & Remap.
                            All i will do with the exterior is change the front grille for the OPC item to match the lower bumper grill (already on order)
