    Smile Hopefully the last time!

    Hey,
    After being persuaded against bidding on a dodgy sxi by comments on my other thread. (thanks )

    I have found a potentional good deal but just need some advice.

    Its a 2004 1.6 Astra 1.6 (mk4)
    61000 mileage
    Good clutch
    Added spoiler
    Nice alloys (not sure which)

    listed as £2700 but mentioned on the phone she is open to offers
    I reckon i get get her down at least £200
    Just wanted to know how much you think its worth
    Many Thanks

    5 stud 1.6 sxi's are really rare probably had ABS ticked on the options list as that also added 5 stud wheels i believe. Looks like a really good find that though, pretty obvious scuff on the bumper so just make sure you have a really good look round and check its history.

    The belt has not been done
    (what mileage is it suppose to be done as Im getting mxied numbers from researching?)
    Asked about any problems or dents and scratches, she said only thing is the scrape on the front bumper. I can use this as my bargaining tool to bring her down in price.
    Should be easily touched up if not too bad.
    Hopefully It will be all good

    iirc it was originally 80k but things started failing before that, so it was dropped to 40k, better to be safe than sorry i reckon
