    Ex-plod car on eBay, but which model??!

    Having a general browse around fleebay, and found this...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/V-REG-Astra-1-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Now what interests me, is the fact its only a 1.4, with non-body coloured bumpers, and no front fogs... yet its got the SXi/SRi seats front & back.

    I assume that this wasn't a factory fit option available to the general public, so was this a "police only" spec'd car?


    Hmmmmmm.

    SVO Police spec.

    A certain member on here works for the police here, and his work car is an Envoy spec estate but it has a 2.0DTi under the hood, and the sports seats etc. Also has the raised and strengthened suspension for going over speed ramps at 70.

    You man has a better spec red one on too at the moment, as it has the body coloured bumpers:

    Get it remapped. I know a fella who spent £200 and got his 1.7DTi Corsa C remapped to 105hp. Goes like stink off a shovel now.
