    What should I expect?

    Hi guys and girls. New to the forum as im looking at getting myself an Astra VXR for my next car. I was just hoping you could give me a little advice on what I should expect to get for my budget. I have around £11,500 to spend and am looking for something no older than an 06 in Arden Blue. Just wondering what sort of spec and mileage I should be looking at. Ive looked on sites such as Autotrader and Pistonheads but the prices seem to vary massively. Also if anyone has one that meets my requirements feel free to get in touch. Cheers everyone.

    Thanks for the replies guys ill give VXRonline a go. Just wondered what sort of spec and age you guys would expect to get for that amount of money eg. leather, AFL etc. I was hoping to get leather, xenons and parking sensors but not sure if im being a little optimistic.

    Yeh had been looking at that and its within my budget but its almost the basic model without anything at all and so I decided to look for one with a higher mileage but more toys. I only do 3-5k miles a year so can afford to go for a slightly higher mileage as it wont have increased much when I come to sell it. Cheers for the link though mate.

    Cheers for that. By the looks of those figures, baring in mind they are only a guide, I should be able to get a well spec'd one with an extra 2k on top to spend.
