    What do ya reckon?

    Hi new member. I've often admired opel cars but they have a very bad rep in NZ.

    What do you think of this Ah Astra VRX:

    I love the idea of it but what do ya reckon - just another m32 gearbox waiting to die?

    I would love to hear from people's experiences with this model vxr. This one only has 32000k! (though I see it's been through 3 private owners in that distance).

    Cheers.

    Wow, that looks like a clean car mate. Maybe the owner allows you to have the car independently inspected. Have a test drive and check for the signed, I wouldn't be too worried myself though. The low k's is something I might question as to why but otherwise, have an inspection done I'd say.

    Thanks. it sure looks tidy. just how chocolate are these gearboxes? anyone out there had an hsv astra? the reports are kind of scary but it's difficult to ever get an idea of the extent of the problem

    Gearboxes are not as bad as you may think. Have a read up of m32 symptoms.
    If there is an issue you will know about it before it let's go giving you time to rebuild it.
