    Be Aware of This!!!!!

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi.../cdx?logcode=p

    Guys I don't know if anyone has even looked at this but if you have & are interested don't touch it.

    I know this car & it is fu***d and has been thrashed to death, has been through a wall in a petrol garage and reversed into a bollard which bent the chassis & I don't think the mileage said is genuine either. Stay away trust me!!!! Don't want to see anybody get ripped off.

    wants reporting to auto trader if you think the milage has been tampered with. Gearbox replaced set alarm bells ringing.
    At the end of the day, it gets dark!!!!!

    LOL, haven't got the CCTV but can describe it as I was told it happened.

    Drove up the ramp into the garage too quickly and the car left the ground, when it come back down it hit the floor and smashed the radiator. With smoke everywhere the bloke couldn't see anything and instead of hitting the brake he just steered to try and avoid any cars and went straight into the wall. Heard the front of the car was a bit of a mess although i never see any pics of it but they did a good job rebuilding it. Wasn't a really tall wall but tall enough.

    I can vouch for when it went into the bollard because I was there, that was a right state lol.

    All in all poor car has been through the wars, but shows that the MK4 astras are like tanks, they can take some punishment.

    To be fair to the guy, I don't think he would know any of this. The car was sold to somebody else for about £150 & I think he has sold it on to the poor sod who is now selling it and wouldn't have told him any of this. This poor bloke probably just thought he can make a small profit on the car and is oblivious to its past.
