Been umming and arring about trading in my Astra for an S3 for a while now, and been looking out for low milage examples. Just noticed one come up in a local garage in the paper a couple of weeks ago (haven't been to see it yet and they don't have a website so it may have actually been sold!) Going to go and look at it tomorrow if it's still there. This is the spec:
2002 225 model
Black w/ black leather
Full service history (not sure if specialist)
New cambelt and pump
Climate pack, bose sound system etc.
What would you pay? I think it's a bit overpriced but I'll see what people say first. Also I've seen the price on autotrader for low milage examples can be really quite high.
What should I check? Haldex servicing etc. Where should I check for rust or anything like that?
The thing putting me off biting the S3 bullet at the moment is I'm concerned about fuel consumption and also the fact I'd be trading in a newer car for an older one, plus having to pay a few k! Also my heart's set on a nogaro blue one.
