Hiya all.

Starting off quick..... my boss aint looking! :laugh:

Astra 1.4 16v LS Ceramic Blue :)

Was looking for a runaround.... then spotted this. 86k on clock, full MOT, full SH (as recent as 2 weeks ago!), 2 owners from new, 1 lady owner for past 10 yrs.

Decent enough I thought, so here we are... :thumb:







Haven't totally decided my plans for it yet, just subtle and sexy me thinks!
Gonna tidy it up a bit the weekend.
Hughezie is gonna detango my rear lights, got some clear SR's on the way :thumb:
Need to swap my xenon lights over from the corsa (and steal the interior bulb! :rolleyes: )

Might spray the alloys white for now til i tyre the fans (no lee.. they're MINE!)

oh and if anyone has a spare passenger mirror going.... mine fell off yesterday when i shut the door??!! :doh: :lol:

Needs tidying up like... Bonnet needs to be re-aligned, odd ding here and there to sort but just small cosmetic stuff. Engine is mint and its mechanically sound :thumb:

welcome to the club! Looks clean that does. You may find that mirror can be reattached if it didnt smash when it fell off

ah sweet dude!! what mods did you make then to bump it up?

the best mod for these engines is the powerbox. iirc theres one for sale at a very reasonable price in the forsale section.

makes such a difference to these engines. i couldnt recomend one enough. you lose some low-end torque, but you gain the extra bhp at the top end and makes the engine just want to rev.

iirc when mine was on the dyno, the graph showed power still climbing all the way to the redline. if i had a raised rev limit im certain it couldve hit 120bhp, and for a 1.4 thats bloody brilliant
