    How Much For My Astra

    I have been told by vauxhall that my astra needs a new throttle body and front exhaust.
    But with new baby on the way cannot in no way afford to spend on it anymore.
    The car starts ok in the morning but once warm struggles sometimes to start but once running is ok just a little slow at pulling out than usual because of a blowing exhaust.
    Could anyone tell me how much i would get for it if i was to put it on ebay with a note saying it neeed a new throttle body
    it is a w reg 1.8 16v sxi sport.
    in good condition apart from the throttle body just a slight fade on the paintwork on side wing but can be brought up im sure. and a crack in front window.
    i need a quick sale so i can get another cheaper car just to run about in.
    the car has done 196000 miles. and has 9 months mot on it
