    My Astra Sxi 1.8 2001 Irmscher

    Bought this on Friday as a little project, came with 2 sets of alloys, 12 months MOT and 6 months tax, all for £600 .




    It does have a list of small problems,
    Has done 98,000 and is on the original cambelt !
    Boot window got put through needs tinting
    Boot wiring needs sorting
    Engine leaks oil from somewhere i don't know but apparently its in the usual place ( common problem ) ? Wherever that is?
    Got a few deep scratches
    Need to make one good set out of 2 sets of alloys
    Overall quite chuffed, spent 2 hours yesterday with a bottle of t cut colour restorer as the paint was as rough as a blackboard and covered in scuffs and specs of tar, shines like a glass now, smooth as anything.
    Plans are to get the wheels refurbed ( ones on the back in the pics )
    Cambelt
    Black LED/Smoked Rear Lights

    You could split that and make more than £600!

    Yeh i know but shes too good to do that to, 12 months mot n that.. apart from the stonechips on the bonnet, theres literally 2/3 other scuffs/scratches on her shes mint.. had a lot to do with her in the week ive had her..

    Reconnected the boot wires as boot had to be removed at some point
    Sprayed the side strips and handles
    T cut and autoglym polish as the paint was like a blackboard
    Engine bay cleaned as it was filthy

    been mainly cleaning, just got to get the strips finished off, cambelt and alt belt done and the oil leak. got 6 weeks till i get my licence back..


    Its got a straight thru exhaust on it though. ridicuously loud !!
