    Question FAO ALL Astra Enthusiasts

    hey all just thought i would ask a question that ive been thinking about for a while:

    If the time came to sell your Astra whether it be a 888, VXR, GSi etc would you sell it to just anybody i.e sum random who you know will wrap it round a tree 5 mins from purchasing it? or would u sell it to someone who you know will take care of it i.e a fellow astra enthusiast?

    all comments/thoughts welcome and appreciated

    p.s im not selling mine lol just a general info thread thanks.

    Prefer to sell it to another Astra enthusiast but at the end of the day if someone came and offered the right money I wouldn't have a problem selling it to them regardless.

    For me it would be the decision to sell that would be the main thing - once that's been decided then who it goes to is less of an issue.

    ....still waitng to see pics of your car by the way!

    Money is money at the end of the day, once you have sold the car it doesnt matter who buys it.

    i don't sell mine, I dismantle them for parts...
    although I think that has more to do with getting more money back than selling it whole

    Normally, if someone paid the asking price (or near as damn it) then it could go to whoever. However if I had spent thousands on building a show car, then I would either put it back to stock as best as possible, or it would go to someone I knew and who would look after and appreciate it as I did.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.
