    Hello all.............

    Hi all Bus owners

    I keep popping on here and having a browse, im hoping to get a GSi. But it wont be for about another year yet (insurance will be alot cheaper then, and i have other stuff to pay out for etc).

    I have 2 little girls, and my very low, 3 door MK3 Astra (with GSi engine, chip, Koni's etc etc) is less than ideal for a family car

    I have always had a soft spot for the Zaf GSi, but it was'nt until recently i decided it will be my next car. I was planning on a Evo 4 or 5 as they have five doors and are a nice car to drive. But i really need practicality with performance (and a Zaf GSi is a shedload cheaper on insurance).

    When i do get one it wont be staying standard

    So although i dont currently own one, i just thought i would say hi as a potential owner

    Oh and merry xmas everyone

    Welcome to the Bus section. You can't go far wrong with a GSi Bus.

    So i have heard/read. Seems most people praise them, and the missus even approves so they cant be to bad

    I am yet to drive one, but i very much doubt i will be dissapointed.

    I will be looking for an 04 onwards, with as many extras as possible, and either Blue or Black

    Should be able to get a good deal on one nowadays. IMO extras to look out for are, climate control, rear parking sensors, xenons and DVD.

    Yeah i have been looking about, and they seem to be abit of a bargain.

    The only other extra i will be looking for (including the extras you list) is full leather, purely because its heated but if the right one comes along with half leather then i will be sure to snap it up.

    Am i right in thinking they all had Traction Control?

    Yes as standard. Only problem is you can't turn it off, unless you fit a t/c switch and loom. Loads of people have fitted it from what I understand it's an easy enough job. LMF do the kits.

    IMO the best full leather is special edition black with red inserts.

    Yeah i have seen a few people have fitted TC switches, and i have seen one with black and red leather, but imo would only look right in a black Zaf, Red leather in a blue car does'nt really work for me.

    I have been looking quite abit into usual upgrades/mods for the GSi, and it seems some people are getting great performance from them.

    I will be spending my hard earned under the bonnet once i do get one.

    But still a small 'to do'' list for the MK3 before im happy to get rid and move on

    If you really want to be special get a Red Gsi. (sorry Andy )

    Any pics of the MK3?
