January 2005 - I did have a nice 5 dr 1.4 GLS Astra, to which I fitted a V grill,the newer headlights, sport bumpers, 15" GSi alloys, sport rear lights and loads more mods. Then on the way to work one morning (Jan 18th), wet road, not paying attention, crap tyres = me ending going into the back of a 44 tonne truck and trailer. I ended up breaking this car for bits as the chassis had splitting the engine bay.
February 2005 - The hunt was on for a replacement run around and I managed to find a 3dr 1.6 Astra Cesaro which I paid £650 for. But I was not 100% happy with the car (even though the car was OK apart from a few dents in the rear quarter) and it was a case of having to drive it every day.
