    Hey Guys

    Hey Guys,

    I'm Matt and i'm from Oxford. I'm 25 and as a living I'm a HGV driver for DHL.

    I have just sold my Vectra 3.2 V6 and looking at getting a Astra Coupe Turbo. I've found a nice low mileage example local to me so just looking for the "what to look out for" stuff that one does before buying a new car.

    My car history is not to bad last car was my 2004 Vectra the 3.2 V6 Elite i brought it on a budget as i wrote off my 2005 STi Prodrive in January and i thought instead of spending 12k on a new car i used the payout to clear some debt so left me £5000 to get a new car.

    The List

    2004 Vectra 3.2 V6 Elite - Standard
    2005 Subaru Sti Prodrive - 305bhp
    2007 Focus ST - 270bhp
    2003 Focus RS - 290bhp
    1991 Cav GSi 2000 - 175bhp
    1996 Audi A4 1.8T Sport - 150bhp
    1989 Sapphire Cosworth 2WD - 300bhp
    1998 Focus 2.0 Zetec - Standard

    had a couple of old escorts as everyday cars when i had my Focus RS as i didnt like getting her wet lol.

    Why the Coupe?

    My friend Mark use to have one although his was nearly 300bhp and i really liked the look of the car. I like Turbos and there easy tune-ability. I've heard some stories about realibilty and thats something i hope to find out more about on here.

    Well thats me hopefully haven't bored you too much and look forward to talking with some of you.

    Matt

    Not massively clued up on the turbos myself, but there's plenty of owners here... I'm sure some will be along shortly
