For Sale: Spares / Repairs Astra (2007 - 1.7CDTi) + a lot of spare parts

Will start with the bad... It went bang on motorway one evening...

99% sure head gasket gone (when trying to start just spins fast, sign of no compression) I do have a diesel compression test kit, not that interested myself now but if anyone seriously interested will happily do a reading if required.
Turbo gone (no damage to compressor/turbine but full of oil).
Bodywork isn't great (been keyed previously and has surface scratches where I've been using it as a shelf, these would machine polish out. Bonnet has quite a few bad stone chips so would need respray/wrapping).

This may be all that's required to get it running again, however may be other damage unseen (e.g. head crack) so could be repaired for as low as £200 (Head gasket + Turbo cartridge) based on eBay parts.

The good...

Has had Stage 2 remap, front decat (internals removed so still looks ok for MOT) and EGR delete. Was running around 150bhp, nippy but still economical - averaged 50mpg real world.
Brand new starter motor (fitted a week before it died)
2 brand new tyres (Pirelli) again fitted about a week before it died (BAD point: front O/S not sealed properly so has a slow leak)
Previously bought a load of spares including radiator, intercooler, brakes, hubs, etc... these are all included (no head gasket or turbo!)

I have been offered £150 for it from one of the we-steal-any-car places, which was more a "what if" look, tbh would probably rather donate it to local college than actually let them have it so open to any offer. If I could be bothered to fix everything it would be worth about £1500. I've owned it 3 1/2 years and it has been totally reliable (apart from last time it was driven obviously!). Was due to be replaced anyway so just got a new car instead.

*MAY* sell some of the spare parts separately if anyone is after anything specific, but I just have not got time or space to strip it nor do I want it in condition I cant move it easily to get rid of (E.g. Tyres / Wheels will not be sold separately).

£150 is a good shout for it.

Don't disagree with that tbh just disagree with their whole company ethics so would rather let it go cheaper to someone who wants it

Cambelt has gone
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
