    Hello Everyone

    Hi, just registered there today,
    I've been driving Astra's for the last 6 years and I have spotted a nice 98 Astra Sport Model with 70K for 1500 quid which I will be buying shortly to replace my 1.4.

    I'm sure you's hate this question by now, but, especially in the Sport Model, what should I look out for?

    Any help appreciated guys

    Darren

    at 70K miles if there is one thing i have found with the eco engines make sure it has a service history!

    Is it MK3 or 4? in 98 they made both IIRC.

    I've got one of each lol...

    MK3 i'd watch for any niggly electrical problems, check the heater works correctly.

    MK4 not really much to worry about as they are quite new cars.

    On any car check the consumables
    tyres, brakes, exhaust, decent MOT time?
