    Default 2003 Astra Sri Turbo F/S Ex Damaged (Update)

    2003 Astra Sri Turbo with 36.000 miles on the clock. Full new style Mot and 5 months tax. This car was recorded as damaged (Cat C). I am using this car everyday for work and general stuff. It's a very good car, drives mint and is quick. I am the 2nd owner of this car, I have the full V5 in my name. The only thing this car needs to finish it off now is an Airbag Ecu that I have coming next week. The traction light is stuck on as the hub sensor was damaged in the accident, but I have now had this replaced. The traction light can't be re set til the airbag Ecu is sorted as it's all linked up in the cars system. This Sri Turbo is a limited edition car of only 500 made! The car had damaged to the drives side wing also pushing the wheel back as the wishbone had snapped. The wing was the only pannel I had to replace to have it looking good again! To repair this car I changed the wishbone & drop link bar, drivers wing and a headlight. I also replaced the water radiator as it cracked a little from the accident. The aircon rad was not touched at all and stil has gas in it for nice cool air. I also replaced the dash and windscreen as the airbags had gone off. I fitted a full new dash and airbags. This car was driving again the same day I bought it, from the new parts I added. The damage was light in my opinion. The car has a dent on the passenger side lower quarter pannel that needs a little work, it's easy enough for a body shop to repair! £4000 I won't drop at all on the price. Thanks

    I have a new spoiler coming today for this car so it's ready to go. When I sell this car I am going to buy a Mk3 Astra Gsi again as I miss my old one

    I would also recommend you changed the drivers strut as it may be bent from the accident. The wheel sits fine and I have had the tracking done for this car (recipt to prove). Also a drivers side skirt may be needed as it has a split in it from the accident. It may repair. Thanks

    It depends on what it is mate . Picture update of new spoiler now fitted ready for paint. I bought this today brand new and it went straight back onto the car no problem at all. Straight back through the original holes in the hatch .

    I am only looking to spend about £1500 on a car like a Mk3 Astra Gsi and I have plans for the rest of the cash, so the Corsa will be no good for me. Nice cars though .
    If you need any more pictures just ask . Here is my contact number if you need any more details also: 07896931525

    Right people keep asking me what it needs to finish it off. So here we go...

    01. Front bumper needs painted and rear spoiler
    02. I would recommend a new front drivers strut (It drives ok the way it is)
    03. Front brake disc may be warped or could be a front strut thing from the accident, but when braking at speed it shakes a little just like a warped disc would do. I would recommend changing for a new front set as they look worn and could do with being replaced.
    04. The drivers wing I replaced could do with touching up or painted, as it has a bit of paint coming away near the headlight area and the top corner.
    05. The rear bumper could do with being replaced or repaired as the bottom splitter went up into the bumper and split it a touch. It's not that notacible.
    06. Dent on passenger side lower quarter pannel needs a repair or a good dent master to look at it.
    07. Drivers side skirt has a split in it from the accident, I would recommend replacing it.
    08. Airbag Ecu needs replaced as the airbag light is on the dash clocks, also making the traction light stay on. I tried having this set back up but the traction and airbag system is linked into the cars system. The traction light was on as the hub sensor was damaged. I replaced this so it's good again.

    If I spend any more cash on this car I will put the price up. It's a cheap car for what it is. If my cheque for a claim I have coming, comes soon I won't sell it! I like this car, it's the best one I have had yet . I think this week will be the last chance to grab it. Thanks
