    Just brought another astra

    Not the turbo you were expecting nor really a mk4 or 5.
    But fire breathing 1.4 spi mk3 merit. oh yeah baby, watch out boys and girls as Im going to terrorise the streets with this monster.
    All seriousness, I have brought it for dani to learn in and its a pearler of a motor, the condition is excellent, couple of chips but no dings or major damage or repair, no rot at all, a real looked after motor on a N plate. the interior is in excellent condition.
    Dani is happy as a pig in shit. really pleased with it, for Ł600 its a real bargain. post some pics up on monday when I fetch it.

    Crummy engine, but not unreasonable for a learner as there's plenty of torque compared to a modern 16v engine.
