    My New Gsi (Mk3)

    Well after a very long day today since 6:00am this morning I have just got back home with my new Astra Gsi 2.0 16 valve . She is a fast one and I love it. It red as you can see in the picture. I was told over the phone it was a Eco tech engine, but it was even nicer to find out once I got there it was a red top engine with a black cover on it, and the lad did not even know this . It also comes with a full closure alarm. I bought it with slight front damage so I am looking for a bonnet, a front grill and a front bumper with fogs. I have some 17 inch alloys to put on her, she just needs a good clean and polish

    I did not like the colour red but it's not faded yet lol, I just need to keep it polished up all the time. The car also come with a full service history . The front end was fun to repair before the long trip back home. I paid £700 for it

    yeah they never made the gsi's with ecotecs!
    They did make Eco Tech ones mate. I have a black L reg one my garage that had a 1.8 Eco Tech engine. It now has a Cavalier Turbo engine in it
