    Second car

    Does anyone know any good Cavalier GSi related websites? I know its not Astra, but i have always loved em, and even tho their gettin on a bit now, i still wudnt mind one. Didnt 'slimshady' used to have one?

    If anyones got any good pics of 1 id appreciate it too.

    Matt.

    Watch out for tin worm

    Unfortunately its got hold of a lot of them now and is why most of the GSi engine now reside in Nova's.

    The most common and lethal rot spot on them is the rear chassis legs and spring cups. Once they have gone the Cav has pretty much had it.

    My advice woul be get a latter Cavlier maybe a SRi Ecotec, they aint as fast but still very cheap for what you get and less likely to be bugged with rot.

    I had a M plate Cavalier V6 CDX which i bought for £2k about four years ago and it was a very nice car to drive, if a little expensive to run

    Techie, pm sent mate.

    Thanks for the comments. I was un aware of that 'tin rot' described. I have been looking around at the classifieds and so far havent found ONE good cav. I have to say im pretty gutted, as after looking on migweb, there are some absolutely awesome GSi's and Turbos on there. Id love a black one with standard bodykit, lowered and some smart rims.

    I have started looking at some vectras now. Although it would cost more on insurance, i wudnt say no to a black 2.5 GSi with sum smart rimmage!
    Ive seen a black Sreg (99), with 44,000 miles, for 6K. I think that is good value!

    Im just bored of my astra, and getting sick of waiting for my personal injury payout, which with it brings a coupe Turbo!
