    New member without an Astra, after some opinions?

    Hello all,

    Im new to the world of vauxhall, always owned fords since i learnt to drive and i fancy a change. Am looking for a new car, always liked the the Mk5 hatchback and i found this one. Its clearly been modified and i was wondering if it belonged to anyone on here, i ask because im always a bit careful about buying modified cars from dealers as they probably dont have a clue about whats been done to it. I can see its been lowered, im guessing using just spings. Also a vxr front grill, possibly HID kit, and blue LED interior conversion.

    If it belonged to someone on here i thought you lovely bunch could possibly vouch for it, you never whether corners have been cut or how well the modification were done.

    Also this forum is pretty awesome, its huge....loads of information

    ive driven two astras before when looking for a car, i really like them. I just wanted to see if anyone could vouch for the mods that have been done. I will just go and look at it and see for myself.

    Why not ask the dealer for the address of the previous owner or garage which did its last service or MOT?

    Give them a call and ask him yourself? the previous owner won't care much he has sold the car now.
