I'm going to see a mk4 3dr astra tomorrow. Im pretty set on getting it aslong as everything is fine. The only problem is that it is in flame red (atleast I think it is).
Now as I've mentioned before, I don't mind putting effort in to keep the car looking good but I don't really have to the time to be spending 3-4 hours every week in order to keep the paint looking good.
Is the fading issue really as bad as everyone is making it out to be?
Was it worse on the earlier cars than the latter ? This is a 51 Plate
Am I exagerating the amount of time and effort that needs to be put in to keep the car looking good?
Was there any other similar red colours that were released that didnt suffer from this curse?
Any advice or opinions would be much appreicated as this is really the only thing that is holding me back with regard to buying the car.
