    Lightbulb Treasure Hunt!

    Ok dudes and dudettes!
    Was thinking up a little compotion for y'all.
    As soon I will be looking into mortgages and house stuff, I could do with more cash, so.... redmist2 is now gonna have to go. ( Sadly missed but, I've had my fun!)

    So anyway, instead of having all those tasty parts (bodykit, lights, mirrors etc, etc) go to new homes I am looking into getting my self a bit of a kiddy wagon in the form of an Astra Estate. Now obviously I am looking on websites, inc autotrader, vauxhall network Q, but there will be the cars out there that don't appear on websites. Basically I'm asking peeps to keep their eyes open for a nice average mileage, mk4 , (Preferebly red!) estate version in the region of £3000 to £4000.

    If anybody finds one tooked away anywhere that I end up buying, I will provide a reward! Maybe a choice of spare car parts or cash sum!!
    Any hoo have fun, live strong, and hope to hear of some fabulous bargains soon!!

    (I posted this in the Yorkshire region cos its mainly relevent to you good Yorkshire folk!)

    That last one is quite nice as it is a CD version with all the toys. All off the autotrader website. Dont know if they are suitable but its a start.

    really sorry though to hear that you are selling 'the beast'.

    Just a thought mike. If you are selling the coupe then could we do a deal on your headlights before it goes.? PM me if you are interested.

    Just realised Mike, why are you getting an estate. The coupe has loads of space in the back for a child seat or 2, and the front seats fold right forward for easy access, plus the boot, is humongus, and can easily fit prams, shopping and lougage. plus if you take it steady the engine can return about 40mpg.


    Id keep it personally, oh and if you must sell, Id be happy to do an ECU swap, for a bit of cash
