    quick question, bump strips

    regarding the horrible lookin bump strips along the side of the sri, do they come off easily? or do they have horrible holes makin it a bodyshop job? on the mk4 that is.

    (sorry if its been asked before, just couldnt find it)

    i think they come off pretty easily, just push hard towards the back of the car.. not sure whats under them though.. most people have colour coded them to make them blend better.. cant say ive seen an astra without them?

    look in the Mod guide section of the gallery loads with them removed

    On a 3 door the rear ones slide towards the rear of the car. The front doors have a retaining screw in the middle that should be undon from inside the car (you will need to take the door card off) Once unscrewed again it slides to the rear of the car and you can prise it of with a screw driver (wrap a cloth around the screw driver though to protect the paint work)
