    Smile Well the Astra has gone & heres the replacement..........

    Well i put the Astra on Piston Heads late Friday night & she went yesterday . She's gone to Wakefield.
    Got the asking price tho so thats a bonus.
    500 has gone into the 'repair the Golf' fund , some went on bills & then i bought the Astra's replacement......& the rest is for some new goodies for it .

    I ended up buying a 1998 S reg Citroen Saxo VTR. Its a absalute minter!
    Its got:
    Full serice History,
    12 months MOT,
    6 months Tax,
    97k,
    2 previous owners.
    JVC Mp3 CD headunit.

    Theres not a mark on it,inside or out! & the best thing about it is...........it is COMPLETEY STANDARD & NEVER been touched!!! .Not even an airfilter....all original!
    Picked it up for just 840.00 !!!

    Was dark when i got it home,but heres the Auto Trader pics.........










    Got some plans for it,lol.
    Iv just ordered a brand newJanspeed 4:2:1 manifold,a brand new GT3 full manifold back system including Straight through de-cat pipe,straight through center pipe with a 4" outrolled back box & a standard style roof spoiler.
    Its also booked in to be lowered next week,im putting it oni ts arse.....gong 60mm on the front & 100mm on the rear ,lol. .

    Its not the Astra,but im pretty happy with it all the same
    Opinions welcome.....& be gentle with me,i know its a Saxo .

    Aside from the steps you've made already, i must ask....

    do you plan on doing anything with those seats? lol.

    Glad you got the asking price with your sale. Tell the buyer about AOC?

    supprising change that mate

    you will want to change the seats had them in my vts so uncomfy. id be tempted to leave it standard mate any reason for not going for a vts sure youd be able to pick on up for 1k now had mine 3 years ago only paid 1500 then that was the same reg as yours would have a proper weekend toy then

    was glad reading you had another car for the baby as the saxos are one of the worst for saftly someone had lent against my wing and it had dented most end up as fatal crashes as there just a bit of tin.

    great fun cars though save on the mods and drop a vts engine in it then the real fun begins
