Vauxhall Astra weight

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My brother has a W reg Vauxhall Astra - and is looking to scrap it. Is there any reference on the internet to tell him what the weight is?
  2. Checked the owners manual the kerbside weight will be there but i'd imagine you'll have to take into acct the plastics etc within it and may not get as much for it as a tone of pure steel etc. The prices for scrap metals change on a daily basis

    Oh and make sure you syphon the fuel out it as well
  3. Look on the car's chassis plate, under the bonnet or inside one of the front door shuts. There'll be paint codes, gross vehicle weight etc. Look for a figure in KG that is about 1000 ish. As Bretta says, how much you get can depend on how much non-metal bits the particular model has.

    No. An Astra weighs around 1,400 kg. But scrappas do not buy on metal weight. I'd say he can expect £150 on a good day.

    Has Google gone on strike or what?
