While building my nova, i bought a mk4 astra 1.6 sxi as a reliable/sensible car.
I had owned the sxi for 3 years now, and as initially hoped it was a superb car, never gave any hastle other than routine maintenance.
So now that the nova is pretty much finnished (well all the big spending is out the way for the moment) I decided to upgrage the astra....
I do 50miles a day comuting to work,so "fast" cars were ruled out.
I really like the mk5 sri cdti150, but they were still a bit out my price range,
Spotted this in the autotrader....
Mk4 1.8 sri,
Factory fit prodrive kit
18" technomangesio alloys
bilstein b14 coilovers
1 owner, and 41k miles
Ive always wanted a mk4 sri-turbo, so loved the look of the car
Went down for a look at the car (near motherwell) gordonlivsey came along. I was hoping to barter the price down (which was high) But i couldnt fault the car other than surface rust on the tow bar
So the deal was done
