    Sax-G

    So my driving ablilty on a saturday morning ended the life of my astra, so i needed a little run around to get me to work and back

    HEY FRENCHY!!!

    got me a saxo vtr mk1, 90,000 miles, 12 month test and 6 tax, for a bargin of a price, loads of service history, a mechanics daughters car which has been propa looked after, not a mark on it, had it on the ramps to check it over and its a beaut!

    Gunna whack it on autotrader ect, see if a make a profit on what i bought it at but if not im happy driving it about, its a nice little nippy motor!

    But..... check that grill OUCH eye sore or what, puttin standard one on it, maybe lower it, then all my money is been saved up for a P38 range rover with the facelift conversion as fancyin a big 4x4 i can stick some mad wheels and bass into.





    comments welcome, i no its french so lets leave them comments lol

    Looks all right mate

    Few things to check for in case you aren't familiar with them

    Check the rear beam bearings for play, REALLY common thing to go on these, inner wings for rust, as citroen don't use plastic covers in the front wheel arches, and the cills in particular

    Not too shabby, can't fault them for the price, can imagine their all dirty cheap these days especially the mk1/phase 1's.

    Leave the rear end alone when it comes to lowering, you want a front end rake and you end up shagging the bearings after a while
