    and so the hunt begins.........

    well today marks the day when i am able to start looking for my newwwww car . After much dissapointment with my old, somehoe my m8 has decided that it will just be easier for him to take out extra cash on a loan he is already takin out an buy me a new car, i am not going to refuse. Ł3,000 is the limit. I am looking for a 1.6 sxi / sport. Has to be 3 door and preferably in black, have found a few sexy ones tell me what you think.

    oh, and the reason i am sticking with the astras, is simply because they are damn good cars! my first one (god bless her) had more milegae than a transatlantic airliner and still never moaned! started brill, purred, and was great on juice. Also i have been busy buyin stuff tht are useless wivout an astra . Another positive of this story is that he has already spent Ł450 trying to fix my car. which will also be returned to me, so after xmas, i will spend the rest get her fixed and then decide what to do with her! either sell her just to cover the cost of repair, cant bear to let it be broken and sold, (first car, first love).....or strip it out and wait a few month an drop a turbo lump in it

    I'm liking the first one, purley as it already has tints which saves time/money already. i wouldn't spend too much money on a car i am going to sell.... could go towards some nice mods on the new one.

    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    I got Ł2800 being 18 on a 1.6 sport. I was told the sport is a group higher than the SXi? and thats why y premium was 2800 and not 2600 like quoted?

    What insurance company was your quote with?
