    Sorry to dig up a thread two weeks late but this is my old car! Well it was up until 2014 when i wrote it off and was auctioned by the insurance company as Cat D. I had it between 2009-2014 and i was running a decat pipe and stage 1 remap. The accident that killed it was i hit a traffic island and took out the nearside wheel, suspension, gearbox and driveshafts. I know someone bought it at auction and rebuilt not long after the write off, thats all i know so i guess they fitted the intercooler. If you want any more info from my ownership of it let me know!

    Thanks For Your Reply i purchased this car i think a day after i posted the car was done up to such a good standard but the front was defo repaired on it , it had a very shi* paint job like someone sprayed it with a spray can but this car was defo quick as iv had a few and had a nurburgring corsa and this astra was defo quick and not standard,
    i never kept the car very long as with all the modifications i couldnt get insured as only 20 and insurance was around £7000 because i added on mods
    but when i sold the car the gearbox was still feeling abit funny but was running good ! And car had all like intercooler sports pipes and was sitting very low on some coilovers

    Thanks for sharing the photos, brings back some memories! The exterior was standard when i owned it (apart from a VXR badge on the grille) so i think the black bits must have been done by whoever rebuilt it. The engine bay is completely different too, i only had a decat pipe and panel K&N filter so looks like a lot of work was done there. Interesting that it seems to have had spray work done on the front, the accident i had caused no body work damage, it was all mechanical (wheels, suspension, etc) so i wonder if it had another prang subsequently. I got paid out £5500 as a write off back in 2014 when it had 91,000 miles on the clock, i know it sold at insurance auction for £4000 shortly after.
