    Angry Oh dear, not such a great bargain!!

    Someone selling a plain slatted grill with an Irmscher badge stuck on it, cleverly worded advert.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra...QQcmdZViewItem



    Hope no one is bidding from here for it as this is how much they cost:

    Plain slatted grill:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Astra...QQcmdZViewItem

    £26 delivered probably could get cheaper.

    And the badge:

    http://www.irmscher-bits.com/catalog...roducts_id=108

    £8

    Total cost = £34 as apposed to currently £73 delivered with one day to go.
    Cleanest car awarded 'Fast Show' 2006 & 2007

    Total Vauxhall featured Sept 2007

    COUPE NOW SOLD

    To be honest it's obvious it's not an Irmy grill and his description is exact!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    The title is misleading

    "Vauxhall Astra G Mk 4 Irmscher Grille/Grill Turbo GSI"

    I've contacted eBay to make them aware of this
    Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
    Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150
