    Why's everyone selling their astras?

    Iíve noticed a sudden increase in the amount of mk4 astras for sale (on the bord and on auto trader). Iím keen to know weather this is being caused by the release of the mk5. Perhaps its better to get rid of the mk4 now before it gets devalued even more by the release of the mk5???

    Is it time to sell?? Or is it that itís so close to the release of the mk5 now that it wouldnít make much difference?

    Bullocks to them selling !

    Possibly as you say with the MK5 coming out soon.
    According to reports the whole second hand market is gonna be real tough pretty soon. So maybe folks are selling while they can.

    It's a great excuse to upgrade though.

    I must admit I've been thinking about a diesel Audi A3.
    Only for the simple power upgrade from AMD, like Ross (techie).
    The one click thing has totally floated my boat !!!

    Anybody (Like myself) who was thinking of buying a second hand 'G' GSi at this time want to think seriously about their desision!!! :shock:
    One way to look at it is yes the 5 door 'H' is being released soon and this will effect the 'G' model, but more so the base models than sports models (Certainly Coupe's and cabs as mentioned above).
    Another thing is, for the extra money you might aswell try and see if Vauxhall have any 'G' GSi's on there system that need to be cleared as you should get a good deal!
    I personally will be keeping my 2.2 SRi until the 3 Door SRi/GSi is released, hopefully next year...........
    And according to one motoring magazine there will be 3 variants:
    2.0 Gsi (256 BHP).
    2.0 SRi (200 BHP).
    2.0 SXi (180 BHP).
    And I think there will be SAAB derived units used.
    Buying and selling a car is never easy at the best of times!!!!!! :?
    Never, EVER, pull a monkeys tail!!!

    The G's have already gone down in price. Everyone knows the H is coming out soon so prices have already been effected. Anyone selling due to this has left it too late. Should have thought about it 6 months ago !!

    evo mag have reviewed a 5 door 240bhp version and they said it was quite good for what they could tell (the test was on snow/ice!) apparently we arent getting the 240 model. our top of the line will be based on the engine in the vx220 (presume they mean the z20let?) we''' have to wait and see i guess

    Having an unmodded 1.6 sxi i'll probably hang on for another year then see what is around, hopefully some cheap SRis or maybe even a GSi depending how good the job I get is!

    I don't plan on selling it at the moment, has given good value for money so far and I hope it continues to do so!
