    My car's latest pics at long last...

    It's not the most modded astra ever I know but i'm trying to do it simply but still achieve a good effect.

    sound mate - those alloys will look really nice when you have the 40mm drop on there...

    could benefit from a little de-badging though? just a small detail...


    i'm quite tempted by a set of bonnet lifters - hmmmm

    Looking good Wayne, and with those mods to come, you really will have a top motor.

    Nice Roller in the background as well. Who does that belong to? Perhaps you could borrow some of his chrome.

    LordNikon... yeah i'm still waiting for your cheque

    Slimshady... your wheels are pretty nice too m8 lol

    Graeme... I should shouldn't I! Usually there's about 6 of them outside his house because he owns a Rolls servicing garage and brings most of them back each night! Occasionally a Hummer turns up and takes his path and more up and then other times he has Lambos etc.

    I guess I could make a spoiler out of one of those chrome rear bumpers off the one in the pic? That'd be different?

    Cheers for the nice comments from everyone... it's nice to know other people like my car too.

    I've been playing around with paint shop pro with the badges and it would look much better de-badged I agree. Will have a go on Tuesday if I get chance.

    I take it a hairdryer and credit card would do the trick?

    Hi Wayne, lovely motor but will look even better when you get your suspension drop done.
    Just had mine done yesterday, really makes a difference. Takes away that 4x4 look

    Bonnet lifters are a great mod, one of the first things I did. Really useful too, especially if your a lazy sod, like me, who can't be bothered lifting your bonnet open.

    Lexmaul grille, excellent choice, same as mine. Great minds think alike.
