Welcome, I'm sure this bunch can find parts for you, only downfall may be the carriage costs.

If you have no joy in Oz then you could try
www.opelforum.org.nz

Any chance of down loading some of the V8 Super Car races as the coverage in the UK isn't great nowadays

Cheers

OMG!

Im from Perth and I have checked eBay and Gumtree almost religiously for a Manta or Ascona for sale in Australia :)

The ONLY one I have seen is this one on Trading Post a few years back with a Rover V8, it was in Adelaide

We've got a few Mantas over here in NZ as they were sold new here for a couple of years. Cheaper to get parts over from here than from UK, and there are some Manta parts that come up on www.trademe.co.nz from time to time as well. Free membership too ;)

 

You are welcome to join the www.OpelForum.org.nz as we have several Aussie members.

 

Have Opel relaunched officially in Australia yet? They are talking about NZ afterwards, but been very quiet on the whole relaunch thing for a while :-(
