    SRI turbo what should i pay

    An sri turbo has come up for sale near me might go look at it tommorrow although ive not sold all parts of my astra gsi mk3 in breaking yet
    its
    41000 but no service history
    2 owners both mates hense no history
    exhaust/air filter dump valve
    stereo gear 6x9s etc

    am worried its a max power special but hope not what you reckon its worth with no history and what should i lok for its up for £6300

    cheers

    At that mileage with no history I would budget for a full service inc. belt, water pump etc. And possibly a turbo if it's been driven hard and not properly serviced.

    Wouldn't pay over £6k for it myself.

    Or you can have my 48,000 mile one for 6 Grand!!

    It also doesn't have an FSH (but it has been serviced - my ex next door neighbour has his own garage!), but I'll get it serviced for you too at that price! And it had the cambelt and water pump done at 38,000 too.

    Standard apart from...

    Powerflow Cat back exhaust (and precat),
    K&N 57i kit (standard airbox supplied too),
    Promotasport power pipe and turbo heat shield,
    Courtenay 3 hose kit in blue,
    Bailleys DV (with spring for original supplied),
    Lexmaul rear lights (Red, White, White, Red - but tinted),
    Kenwood component speakers all round,
    Bonnet struts,
    2 brand new tyres (Uniroyals) - and the other 2 have a fair bit of meat on them too!!
    Will have new pads all round soon,

    And I'm in no rush to sell so could wait till you have got rid of all your bits if you want!!

    PS, this is genuine, not me just trying to get my post count up!!

    Why thank you!!

    To be honest, we are only selling it because it doesn't really get the use it deserves - I've got the VXR (and if we go anywhere it is always in that) and the wife only really uses it to go to work and back - it is a lovely car and a bloody good drive too.

    It's also a bit cheeky having 2 turbo's in the family!!
