    I've got a new car

    I used to own an Astra GSi... it looked like this...






    Sadly it met with an untimely demise










    After several months of driving a Mondeo ST hire car (eeww) I finally got enough cash together to get a replacement. Had to be an M3, been wanting one for ages.

    Not got many mods planned just yet... i thought modding the Astra was expensive, anything for the M3 costs twice as much. Top priority are some new alloys, hate the wheel on it atm.

    Here's some pics...








    Absolutely loving the car, just can't get bored of driving it

    very nice. Is it a 2001 - Y or up to 51 reg going by the wheels?
    Becoming affordable now too, which makes them more appealing to the masses.

    Superb cars, drove Steve Tolleys old cabriolet breifly and it was immense. Good purchase Shane.
