    Red face How come its so hard to find zafira gsi turbos for sale?

    Hi this is my first post so please be kind if i have posted in the wrong part its probably due to me being blonde I have a standard zafira 1.8 xreg and have decided im bored of it and want a gsi turbo i have the money waiting just cant find a car close enough to me to buy? am i not looking in the right place? most seem to be over 100 miles away i know i will probably end up having to travel but i would rather not have to go that far. im in the east midlands can anyone point me in the right direction? also can anyone tell me anything i should know before buying one anything to look out for? help please

    I'm from near Derby, and a quick look on Autotrader finds 6 within 60 miles.

    http://search.autotrader.co.uk/es-uk...owMoreOptions=

    Personnally i'd travel to get the right car, even been down to the South coast for one.

    Oh, Welcome to AOC, you may want to click my sig.

    Welcome to the site.

    I guess a lot of people are holding on to them partly because like most cars thay have lost a lot of value in the last year or so, and are worth more to them than they would get cash for them, and partly because of the current economic conditions .... not willing to spend any more money than they have to at the moment.

    I'd agree with Keif though, it's worth travelling to get the right car.

    it depends if its a garage that will do part exchange about £6000 but if its private then no more than £5000. i just rang one off auto trader but its sold and another one isn't answering the phone so i guess they are shut with the bad weather? theres one on ebay i like but im not sure about it looks like its in a warehouse or something also has been moded abit so not sure ?
