    Finding a MK4 16V 1.6 - Advice?

    Getting me abit aggravated having the money to spend but not being able to find anything in my price range, feel abit of a fool for being so eager but buying a astra is on my mind all day.

    Realised 1.4 isn’t a wise option no more so im looking for a 16V 1.6 (sxi preferred due to it already being lowered) colour preferably black. Ive got Ł2000 base to spend but cud go up to like Ł2600 maybe (that’s pushing my budget).

    Any ideas on what i should be doing? going out looking in garages? Waiting on ebay? Other options?

    Thanks alot for the help.

    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    it is possible to get one for 2600. just take ur time and the right one will pop up, its always the way. when you look to hard for it you wont get it, then when u stop looking it will appear!

    i think you may just find an 01 plate one with the nicer wheels for that money, about 50k miles i reckon
    Fitted options: Folding mirrors, cruise control, dual tone horn, remap.
    Next: Bluetooth

    What about something like that -

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1998-VAUXHALL-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Looks really good and should have plenty life left in the engine, should be perfect for your price range aswell.

    BTW, Vaux valued my car at a crappy Ł1200 when i was interested in selling it. Its on an S plate and 70k miles.

    May be hard, but you should find one for 2k
