What shorty antenna did you put on your car? Does it have decent reception as compared to the stock?

Project 8888 is definitely a looker though. Pretty tight.

Just some one off eBay. Reception seems fine, but I never use the radio to test it for certain.

Boy, something's contagious around here lol. Are you in California or somewhere out there? I vaguely remember you being far away, not sure if you mentioned it at some point. When I was purchasing my Blue Astra, a good friend of mine was looking for a White Astra but there were none left that he wanted.

As much time and money as you spend on your cars you would be a lot more entertained w/ something like an M3, which is what I have been shopping for myself.

If I had another 50 hp and a 6 speed in my Astra I'd be so happy w/ this car and wouldn't trade it for years.

Trade-in value is poor on Astras but they seem to be quite easy to sell.

Good luck!

Hey. I'm in LA. I think I was really close to buying some borbets (that came off your 8888) from you close to a yr ago. I MIGHT be interested in the car. But don't count on it. I'll keep you posted. I would, however, need to sell my 4dr astra, either before, or immediately after. I will let you know if this is serious, and if not, then good luck. Sorry to see such a nice ride go.

I think you should part your car out. At least the aftermarket parts.

I'll take the radio and Nav! Seriously.

I'm bummed you are selling yours as you have been the most fervent Astra fan and we have such a small base.

I have been looking at trading my Astra in a bit. Everyone is offering me $9,500 which isn't horrible but then I drive the new cars and they aren't really any better unless I spend $50K or more. I'll probably wait another year or so until I find a car I just can not live w/o.

I've also received two pretty good offers to trade my car plus cash for an M3 but both cars were really too old for a daily driver.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Parting out is a last resort sort of option. The car is only great as a whole with all the aftermarket and OEM parts together, it'd be a shame to break it up.

i have an e36 m3 as my weekend toy and my astrad as my DD. i prefer the go cart feel of the astra for tooling around town. i love the m3 with its bilstein PSS9s set to 6, lowered and corner balanced on the track.

but the astra takes regular gets better mpg, and is better in foul weather. plus it has 175k less miles on it.

BTW, my m3 is for sale - not by choice.
