    Breaking a car

    Im thinking of breaking my astra to get some money back off it.

    Is it worth doing or is it just to much of a ball ache to do?

    Come on Brett..... you know you wont get your money back...

    It'll cost you more to put it back to standard.

    No I mean completley break it of everything, not after all my money back just got a figure I need, wich is the value of the car, and tbh its worth more as parts imo.

    but as I said im thinking just trying to way up my options

    it seems silly breaking a car that isnt exacly old or broken
    but it does seem to make sense sigh.

    Look at the options, its had so much spent on it that the only thing I could do is keep it and carry on the whole hog, sell it, then you have the game of people not wanting to pay the extra money for all the things it has got, they want to pay for a standard astra, and reap the rewards, or break the car for spares, sell all the mods and get roughly the asking price back, it just the ball ache of breaking it and selling the parts on is my biggest worry.
    Would love to stick it back to standard but its not cost effective

    look, put in the new, bigger engine and tell dani it cost £13 (as everything else has cost that ) and you'll be away. seriously you can't break it it's one of my favourite cars, but if you do decide to do the dreadfull deed,give me a shout first as there, many things i'm shore we could do a deal on .
