    My engine is sitting on an angle!

    My Astra Sri 2.0 engine is sitting on an angle on one side. At tonights meet I had a look at the same engine and mine, and mine is down on one side compared to the other engine . The car drives fine, I can let go of the steering wheel and it's straight enough, I just don't know why it's sitting wrong. I need to get the car up on the ramps to see whats wrong with it. I will aslo try and get my wheels straight tomorrow at a garage. I now have 16 Inch Cav Turbo wheels on till I get the camber sorted.

    The ones at the front are, the engine seems ok as I have tried to rock it and it seems steady.

    I thought mine was fine but then I looked at the silver 2.0 tonight and his looked like it was sitting better, both the same engines. Even the Gsi engine looks straighter same sort of engine.

    u spent a long time looking at the car.
    u were given money off the car,
    u were given extras with the car that were not advertised

    u should not have bought the car if you were not happy
    u should contact the seller if you have any problems
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    I found out you crashed the car, you told me you had the car a year and it was never crashed. You said you had bought it from a garage like that. The front bumper was pop rivited to the bumper bar to hold it on, and bonded on to hold it to the car, as both side are smashed. If you had told me that you damaged it once by losing control, I would have still bought it anyway, but maybe got it cheaper again, so I could spend cash on it getting it right. I still like the car and will get it back to normal again. You should just tell the truth!

    Difficult to see what you mean from the pictures Mark, are you saying that the gearbox end sits lower??

    didn't realise you bought it off another a-s member
