    Awaiting my Astra

    Hi there!

    I'm a new face around here, i've been visiting the forums for a couple of weeks but wasn't going to post till I got my astra, which I thought would have been ALOT sooner than it's frustratingly becoming.

    Just looking for a few opinions and a bit of advice really. The situation is, I have agreed to purchase a black 1.8 sxi (AC) 51 reg Astra 3dr MK4. (wooo!) Well, the kid I am buying it off has a private reg on it and doesn't want to see it out of his hands before the original plate is restored. I agreed to a deal on the 30th of March and left him with a deposit of £100, he said he would give me a call the following week when the plate had been restored. He has filled in the neccessary forms and submitted them to the DVLA so they can supply him with a replacement tax disc and log book appropiate to that of the vehicle registration. He said to me they should be here by Wedesnday the 12th. However he has not received them yet and he sent the form off Monday the 3rd of April and I understand things like this can take anything up to 6 weeks to be processed!!!

    Is there any reason as to why I cannot have the car now whilst the registration ammendments are being restored? So I can say to him, "can I have the car now then please?" As the sooner I get my astra baby, obviously the better!

    Any help would be appreciated! Cheers!

    John

    Welcome to the site. Nice choice of car. Any mods lined up?

    If the forms aren't back from the DVLA it means the forms haven't gone through the computer system. This means that when your out and about driving, any cop car (overt or covert) with this new reg plate ID system will show up as **shouldn't be on the road** or will show as a different car entirely. This will obviously mean being pulled by Mr plod and having a chat and producer to which you produce your non existant docs. Plus legally you won't have insurance. Which means free loyalty points and more money going in Tony Blairs I want a private jet fund.

    Bad thing all round I think. Just sit tight. You could get it transported to your house but then imagine waking every morning and having to leave it behind to catch the bus to work. NO THANKS!!!!

    Thanks for the replies, very informative!

    It has an open coned K&N air filter on which I may alter when I eventually get it, and it also has a magnex exhaust.




    Thats a pic of the car I took on the kids drive as I sorted the deal out. Hope I get it soon!!!!!!!!

    Thanks again!
