    NEW CAR!



    As you can see i finally managed to get hold of a nice shiney astra mk3. its a 1.8 sport, n reg, no rust what so ever, very clean inside, with nothing more wrong with it than a missing sport badge on drivers side. im very impressed with the car, it handles quite well and pulls through all the gears. I got it for a measly 900 notes over the xmas period, with a full years mot, half a years tax, and a full tank o fuel thrown in, which is good cos i had to drive 200 miles to collect it. That was the most satisfying journey of my life so far, - taking the old escort up, leaving it to be dumped, and driving a far superior car all the way home again.

    Let me know what you guys think of the car, and any suggestions for subtle mods. Im not too bothered bout power increases, like i said, it pulls well already.
    If all else fails.....CRY!

    Really nice and a bargin as well!!

    first of all change the side indicators to white/clear ones. Other than that suspension is a must as the differance is amazing on the Mk3 maybe wheels and exhaust at some point. Oh and colour code the black bits

    Leave it as it is other than that, looks mint.
