Re: my broken astra and my nice new alfa
£3k is probably top-end for a 1.8 on a '51'.
But as always, a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, if it's mint, then it might be worth it.
Service history is vital however.
As for tax, the difference is £210 pre 2001 and £300 post 2001....you have to decide whether this is a big enough factor.
