    New member with a 2000 SXi

    Hi,

    Just gone and bought myself a 1.6 SXi on a W plate with fairly low milage, its done about 20k in 3 years. I've been looking at one of these for well over a year and I've finally got the cash to own one. May be looking to do a subtle mod or 2 in the next few months but it all depends on my money and my missus. Are there any low cost mods that don't have to be declared to the insurance company, unfortunately I'm with Tesco but they were the cheapest I could find. First thing I'm doing is taking out the nasty CAR400 tape deck thingy and putting in an MP3 head unit.

    Anyways, just thought I'd make myself known.

    Cheers

    Hi, welcome to Astra-Sport!

    Usualy cheap start-off mods would be:
    - De-Badge (free, but leave centre vaux badge as theres holes behind it)
    - tinted rear lights (£10 spray from halfords)
    - DIY colour codeing (maybe a bit daring if uve never done it b4)

    Hope u enjoy the site, lots of friendly astra owners here, always on hand to help with any queries u might have! :P

    welcome to the site mate!

    Cheapo mods.

    Debadging the rear, but keep the vaux symbol in the centre as it leaves a hole.
    Tint rear lights, tint the orange bit red, looks lots better!
    Astra Sport stickers!
    Derestrict the airbox - http://www.m1gst.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1070
    And get a decent panel filter in there, PVD ones are about 25 notes.
    Keep your eyes open for second hand parts that are always available in the classifieds section. Some good bargins to be had!!
