    Mk4 Astra 1.4 - do you have one?

    Hello guys and gals,

    i finally managed to sell my car and am now looking for an astra, but unfortunatly in the last couple of months the insurance has gone up a lot so i cant afford more expensive models or more powerful models... such is life...

    anyway, i can still afford a 2000/1.4/16v and was wondering where i could find one, had a look on auto trader and a few other sites, also checked the classified in AOC forum, but cant seem to find one...

    i have a budget of about £1400/1500 and based in north east. if anyone has one with fair conditions, please email me (mjena@hotmail.co.uk) i dont have a car and i've been wanting an astra for ages now, bloody insurance companies!!!

    thanks!

    The 1.4 16v is pretty rare actually, but the slightly less powerful 1.6 8v is plentiful and I'd imagine it costs about the same to run.

    it's not rare, people just dont want to sell em. cheap tax and decent power (90bhp) gives you a good blend of performance and value.

    i cant wait till i get mine...

    I don't see the big lure of a cheaper tax bracket. £80 or so a year difference isn't a lot of money when you're spending a few grand on a car. It's a couple of tanks of fuel.

    That will bump the insurance costs up I should think, I found anything with an 'i' in its model number makes quite a difference lol
