    what shall i get for the front of the car

    ive ordered the items i need to sort my cars ass out, a sri turbo valance and irmscher back box.

    so what do you think would suit the front keeping in mind i still have the standard 16" rims.

    i was thinking irmscher splitter, any better ideas?

    With the SRi Turbo rear splitter the back will look lower than the front. So you need to have a deeper than standard front spoiler to balance the look of the car. The Irmscher Splitter is very nice, but was not designed to go with the SRI Turbo rear.

    Replace the front bumper/spoiler with either the SRi Turbo front spoiler, GSI front spoiler or the Astra Coupe front+spliter. Alternatively Reiger and Steinmezt both do nice front spoilers. So much choice! Confusing isn't it.

    IMO the GSI front spoiler is good value for money.

    quite a few people on here are running the irmscher splitter with the prodrive rear and it looks pretty nice.

    also irmscher spliter on the standard bumper is lower than sri turbos full bumper anyway

    How low are you planning to go in the future Cal?. As the Irmscher front isn't "low" friendly if you want more than 30-40mm.

    i'm -40 with coupe bumper irmscher splitter setup, yes you have to be carefully, but i wouldn't say it was a problem, just go up and down drives slowly, same goes for speed humps.

    i had the irmscher hatch splitter before on standard sus and it never cought, and i couldn't see it being much bother on a 40mm drop as it's not really much lower than the standard rubber lipp.

    so as long as remember it's there i can't see either being problems

    Yeah, the problem i see is its further out than the lip. I suppose you only have to worry with there's sharp changes in road angle. If you want to stick with vauxhall type styling then go for the Sri Turbo rear valance
