This is my second mk 2, 1.3 astra now and i really do think they are sound reliable cars. having 125000 miles on the clock when i brought around a year ago it has now done 136000.

the car was a free car off my mum it had never been cained until i got it then i blew it up, shortly after this i rebuilt the engine since then i have spent around 3000 pounds on it doing it up it is now fast as hell for a 1.3.
the handling is amazing since i lowered it too. the only thing is as i said the carb goes rong very much.i have changed it alot about 3 times since i got it! (read more)
