    this a good deal or not?

    My mum has a mk4 sxi 51reg it had 15k on the clock and is used to go to the shows and work its in mint condtion and never been thrashed or anything.


    my dad is looking to get a mk5 astra now so the mk4 will be for sale


    in short he said i can have it for around £5k if he gets a mk5 so be around £30 per week!!

    is this a good deal as i can sell my mk3 and all the parts so will pay it off quicker (but will probs mod it instead )

    any advise would be great

    yes, v. low miles and you know the history of the car. If its a mk4 you want - dont hesitate.
