    EML light on, Check for smoke on idle and boost. Temperature gauge and make sure it aint overheating. Make sure it boosts properly.

    Make sure you put my name and address in when you are signing the logbook

    Apart from that check the history, turbo smoke, ask to see it started from cold, service history, check in and around gaps for accident damage, rusty arches, and again, make sure it seems to boost ok (easy if it has a boost gauge installed)

    If you are going to view one, even ask your local region area if a member who may own a GSI or has knowledge to come along.
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!

    Currently Running MK1 1.8 MX5 with LSD awaiting boost, and a Red UK DC2
