Default Selling Opel Astra front grille.

Traded in my 08 3dr Astra today. It was a great car!!! Salesman was confused as to what kind of car it was since I had it rebadged as an Opel. He first thought it was a Chevy Volt (lightning bolt) I guess. Anyway, he insisted that I rebadge it back to a Saturn to make it easier to resell. IMO, I still think it looks better as an Opel. So his loss is your gain. Purchased from Astonvauxhall.com.uk on 09/07/10 for 180.00 BP. approx $270.00 USD. Still in excellent condition. $125.00 plus shipping or best offer. You can private message me and I can provide pics.

Astra had 41K and was in excellent condition They lowballed me with 8K at first and I finally got them up to $9,800.00. I had it on Craigslist for over a month for $10,990. and finally down to $9,990. Not one legit response.
Car is in Delaware.

Cool, Thanks coop. Not a bad price. Should have stuck with the volt Story and got 25K for it! Just go to the hardware store and get a plug and bolt it to the fender! LOL

It is a common cycle when warranties start to run out to see a glut on the market. There are generally 2 types of car buyers: those who will pay a premium to always be under a warranty and those who would rather not have a warranty in favor of a discount.

So at some point the vehicles have to change owners. And I would say that transition started about 6 months ago.

Did you still have that grille?

Someone backed into my car the other day in a parking lot and badly dented my hood and pushed in my grille. Had thought that an Opel grille would be nice before, but don't really have the cash to customize my car, now I can do it out of necessity
...
I used to beat up cars, then I got a Saturn.
