    Did you see this on ebay mate?

    I saw the exact same advert but the one i read was that he wanted 3 grand for the engine only. Check the advert again and see if its the whole car or just the z20let.

    this was the one on ebay he advertised it as 300bhp z20let engine for sale and get a free car with it it seemed cheap to me seein as he had bills for about £12,000 for the engine work

    He's added the free car bit on since i last saw the advert and obviously bumped the price up a bit. Seems like it needs a bit of attention to it before you could start driving it so depends how much extra you want to spend and/or if you're mechanically minded i guess.

    Heres the link

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTRA-COUPE-Z2...QQcmdZViewItem

    Might be worth saying this has been advertised for quite some time and used as a track car. Make what you want of that...

    So before looking at or evaluating the car you made the seller an offer lower than his origional price, he;s now accepted it now your running scared incase its not right? Surely you should have looked at the car in the flesh and evaluated it before making offers on it then quiering it after its been accepted.

    i like it and i wanted to see what he would take for it, and yes in a sense i suppose i am abit scared as i odnt want to buy a car and then the engine blow up 50 mile down the road, so i just wanted to see if the car has been on here or if anyone knows this car and could give me advice,

    also when i do go view the car what things to look for, after all i am a astra newbie and dont know much about them to be fair so please give me a little slack and dont jump at me plz

    The only thing to be aware of is that it was an SE2 not a coupe Turbo so it's had an engie transplant. You need to ensure it's working correctly as you'd expect a factory built car to do (ok, perhaps not the best example, but you know what I mean).
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
