    Bought a car today... 1.8 SE2

    300 mile round trip and £3100 for this...





    Opinions?

    Haven't got much of a budget as I spent £500 more than I was hoping to when looking for one, but this was in too good of a condition to turn away.
    58000 miles, 40mm lowering, gsi bumper, new cambelt and more.

    Debating buying a centre console from a split car and build in an iPod touch I have that isn't being used.
    Other than that, not really anything, wheels already the colour I wanted and I prefer the Opel grill to Irmi's anyway.

    He also mentioned the number could be worth upto £500, any idea of how I go about finding this out?

    You could enter that number plate onto the DVLA website for number plates, or phone them direct and see what it is worth!

    Car does look very good. Nice motor, very good buy!

    looks very nice, love the colour of the car and wheels - go so well. Think that front bumper belongs on a coupe - seems a good deal you got.

    sadly I didnt drive back, insurance is only a reasonable price as of my 21st birthday (3 weeks). meaning it is just sitting there taunting me! haha

    althjough had a shocker of a start, nver came accross a gear stick you lift part of it to go into reverse, so neally went straght into the house first time i tried to back it up for some pictures!

    other than that though, the clutch saeemed so easy to find the bite, and i cannot wait to have this on the road.

    Loving it more and more i see it, still hasnt sunk in it is mine! and i dont think it will until im driving it.]]

    Thanks for all the comments peeps, nice feeling the savings ive had going for years havent gone to waste

    Will buy some good cleaning stuff on sunday and give it a super clean to make it as best it can be.
    cenre console is a little scratched so definitely looking at getting a second one to paint and build in my iPod.
    Also have some irmscher lock inserts the seller gave with the car.
