Astra Sport 1.8 16v 1996 (N Plate). £1200.

141,000 miles but the engine uses no oil in between oil changes and has never failed me in the three years I've owned the car. The overall condition is better than average for this age and mileage. Insurance is cheap. Cam belt and oil change done recently.

For those of you that don't know - the only difference between this car and a GSi is the body kit and traction control. It is just as quick as the 1.8 GSi and due to better gearing, almost as quick as the 2.0 GSi.

It has 6 months tax and MOT, 4 new tyres, brand new battery, cat1 alarm, electric windows, air bag, trip computer, electric sunroof, ABS, rev counter and looks great. Due to low insurnace costs, this would make a great car for a young driver or first car.

The car will be available from Saturday 7th May.

(does not include 16" wheels and private plate shown)

Standard 1.8 16v Ecotech (C18XEL) with an Ecotek valve, Fuel Cat, de-restricted airbox.
