There there everyone for the last 2 & half years I've owned an Astra 1.9CDTi
I've always had Vauxhalls but now I was ready for a change. Originally I was looking at Audi TT's but for about £7,500 all I could get was an 02 or 03 plate that had been to the moon and back!
Now before I got my Astra I looked at Type R's but they were fetching £14k. So I decided to look again & I found this Beaut.
I picked this up on 7th Sept It was on Ebay on live auction. The bid was about £6k with 2 days to go. I messaged to the guy & offered £7k to end the auction (as he did state he was open to offers to end it early) But he said £7,300 was the least he could take for it as it had been bought at the end of July for nearly £10,000. He took it in PX for his Skyline as he knew it would be easier to sell. The fella who bought had always had Skylines in the past & tried to come away from but failed so he chopped it in & lost a wedge which made me a great saving.
So I paid £7,300, 1 owner from new, full Honda History 30,000 miles & its as new inside & out.

Honda Civic Typr R GT in Pearl Bronze.












Comments welcome & thanks for looking.:p

P.S I've already put LED side lights, LED number plate lights & 2X LED strips wired to the boot light. (the boot light is pretty pants!)

Thanks fellas.
Any thing I should look out for?

I've already looked in the top corner of the doors & all was good there, however I did treat it with a spot Hammerite underseal with added waxoyl & bonded the seal corner to the door (just to make sure)

The car should be pretty bulletproof matey, any problems you may encounter will have probably cropped up on here before so you'll be in safe hands :)
