    If it's a Mk4 GSi then there are plenty of little niggle's. Mainly sensors that are problematic and the turbo's if not looked after properly.

    Generally speaking they are good cars with decent tuning potential and good running costs. Also, take a look on www.zlet.co.uk and they have lots of advice on buying.

    Post some pics of ya car and welcome!

    Firstly, welcome to AS

    Im assuming your after a Mk4/G Astra GSi.
    From reading on hear the main things to look out for on a GSI (or anyother LET is the EGR (ehaust gas regulator), AFM (air flow meter) and whether the cambelt has been changed (every 40k).

    Regular servicing is also important.... at least every 10k and possibly regular interim oil changes.

    I'm not a LET owner but there are plenty of them on here so im sure you'll get loads of advice

    Hello and welcome!

    MY mate's boyfreind was selling his black MK3 GSi a while ago. Not sure if it's still for sale but it's completely standard and very clean. I'll forward some pics if you're interested

    Sorry to hear that

    By all acounts I think MK3 GSis are pretty good provding you hold out for a decent one. I dont really know much about them though so I'll let someone else do the talking
