    WRC kit

    On page 63 in the latest Total Vauxhall magazine, there is a kit for the Astra called the WRC kit. Has anyone got any pictures of this kit on someones car as I'm intrigued and thinking of getting it.

    I can't find any pics of it on the net.

    What do you think?

    Cheers.

    Be careful of the skirts, if your talking about the ones from ffwd motorsport that are £125. I bought them and the fit was appauling, I know most thing require a bit of cutting and forcing etc... but these were terrible me nor my local bodyshop could get them even close to fitting, length was perfect but no way were they going on, even if they did it would have looked terrible.... the front and rear bumpers look really nice though and was tempted myself

    well they didn't make a WRC astra, so its just the name not a replica

    the only rally car that was/is made is the F2 kit car.

    I'm just wanting that front bumper is all. Not really wanting the rest of the kit. I like the bumper as it has that line around the top part of the bumper like standard ones, so it will match the contours of the rear bumper. It's not smoothed out like the GT'R front bumper. I also like the projector lamps to the side of the vents, instead of the lights being in the vents like on the GT'R. The whole look of it is aggressive which I really like.

    To go with the front bumper, I'll also be getting the Rieger Race rear bumper, but with two exhaust outlets as I'll be having the Remus Duplex exhaust.

    The side skirts will be JC-design sideskirts like T'Sports ... (I need some help sourcing those).

    The boot spoiler will be a Irmscher boot lip together with Auto Tint Design Cosworth Roof Tip.

    Can't wait to get it all and get it fitted!

    If anyone can help me by bringing up a picture of the front bumper, I'll be most appreciated. Also if someone can help me with sourcing those side-skirts, that would be great too!

    Cheers.

    Thanks for that mate, but that's not the one. The centre vent is bigger and comes down further to the vents either side. The vents either side are also squarer.

    Very similar though mate.

    its this one:



    Its made by ICC who are not well known for there quality in terms of fitment but are very strong. They have also in the past ripped off some Reiger designs, hence where this design has come from.

    The JE Design skirts you will only be able to get them from superspeed.

    I hope that is of some help mate
