    could i get some advise please?

    hi my mate is planing buying a 02 plate astra coupe, 50'000 miles on it and i was just wondering is there anything he should look out for? as i'm going up 2 view it with him again 2moro.
    also what sort of price do you think youd pay for a coupe with that stats? only problem he could see was a few scuffs on the alloys.
    any help much appreciated.

    Theres a 'buying guide' thread stickied at the top with some useful information which is well worth a read. Which engine does it have, that'll make a difference too.

    the turbo seems to be the biggest problem due to people not letting it cool after a hard run and ragging it from cold.

    the boost controll sensor also goes but that only costs 25 squid (causes unstable boost)
    and the air flow sensor also goes thats about 100 squid (causes the car to run like crap)
    and the water pump also goes at about 40k

    those are the main points to look out for the only one that cant be sorted fro less than £100 is the turbo that will cost 160 ish from ebay 250 ish for a recon or 500-800 from vauxhall

    but have a look at the buyers guide on ere
