    Back in a Mk4 Astra

    Hi folks. Been on look out for a cheapo car and found a 2000 W reg Astra 1.6 Sxi. Tax and mot with 4 new tyres and FSH.
    Couple of week back i bought a 2001 Punto for 600 purely to make some dosh and punted it on for 800 and today i got £100 of the price of the Astra so im a bit heavier in my pocket atm which is great.


    Anyway, couple of pics also Scotts T8 is in there...not the best pics mind you and one with my Focus in it.





    Got some wee bits on it that will need to put right but it is coming on 11years old so not to bad.

    Not quite sure what you mean by that I have to admit, my Focus is better but then again the Astra is coming on 11 years old.

    The SXi looks good Tracy.

    Glad you managed to get something sorted. Any plans or will this just be a run about...?

    Is the Focus now going...? I know what you mean by the Focus being ahead of the Astra for refinement, I too think that was after drivig the C-Max versus the Mk5 Astra and Zafira Mk2
    Hey YOU See Oooour Reeegin Noooo ! Toss Yer Caber Here

    Not sure yet Mark, got few things wee things to get sorted on it first but have been looking for new grille and i think the headlights could do with being replaced but unsure if to keep the clear crystal or go for the darker styel, same with the rears amongst the wee other things.

    Yeah Focus is going now

    Ahh right. Nah wont be the same. Since its got black wheels it will prob be a dark green and black combo.
    Might be getting a set of front seats next weekend if all goes to plan as the 2 front ones are buggered.

    Bought 2/3 wee things already
