    Talking Update - Cause it's been a while!!

    So....

    I have given up with the Mk4 Astra Sri now.... Grrrrrr too many electrical problems! Head completely battered, after changing every possible sensor, the ECU and bits and pieces in the loom, as well as doing god knows how many tech2 resets and even the auto electrician having a butchers... I have officially given up on my first ever vauxhall!!! I never though it would be possible - bad times!!!

    But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel

    I know the proud owner (as well as the scrap sri) of a spankingly gorgeous Mk3 Astra Gsi.... It's sooooooooo pretty and guess what... It runs sweet as Needs a few little tit bits to be expected and seeing as I don't need to worry about getting it running cause it works already, I can start with mods whoop whoop... (hint hint anyone with and Gsi bits PM me haha).

    I am now carrying probably the largest grin in the north east, always wanted a Mk3 Gsi so this is defo a mint start to the new year.

    Anyways I'll shhh now just wanted to share the good news lol
