Ive been in 2 minds over the last few months over what car im going for next.
I was looking at leaving vauxhalls all together and going for a diesel golf GTi or a later GT sport, also thought about a diesel sport hatch.
However ive always liked the astra VXR since it came out and now the prices are getting sensible on the used car market im looking to purchase one in the coming months plus i cant turn my back on vauxhalls has i wont be able to attend anymore shows.
I have never owned a turbo car before and not really driven them before tbh other than the odd Mk5 Golf GTI at work but thats only up and down the compound etc.
Ive found a nice 06 plate in black with 21k the 19s, FSH and whats left of the warrentty for this year. The dealer is asking £11k for it.
I also found a 57 plate in black with 12k and the 18s for £13k but that sold the day before emailed them about it.
Really i would be looking for 06/56 plate, what would i need to look out for in general?
Im not going to rush into buying one as there are plenty about and intend to test drive some as i want to see how they have been treated. Last thing i want is one that some has no idea of turbos and turned it off everyday straight after boosting the turbo.
Also i only travel around 6 miles a day to work so fuel consumption wont be the best over that distance
greatfull for any info
