    check for smoke due to turbo seals failing + look at the hood fluid in the inner trim of the o/s/r 1/4 this is an asre to top up!

    check the AFM too as these are notorious for failing on the ZLETs, and as said, blue smoke from the exhaust is a sign of a knackered turbo. If it does do it, still offer to buy it, but as long as it gets a new turbo first as the ZLET turbo's have been discontinued now and their replacing broken ones with VXR turbo's, so might get an upgrade for free.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
