    Simple but effective mod for around £100?

    Its my birthday in 2 weeks, and i want my bird to get me something i'd appreciate rather than the usual tat she picks out. It'll be for an astra coupe, which i'm picking up in a couple of weeks.

    Anyway, been think, and so far the options are:
    Grille
    M3 mirrors
    Rear spoiler
    Irmscher rear corner splitters (ebay)
    Tinted rear lights


    I've tralled through Ebay, and there are loads of items i'd love, but are not available to the UK as most want cash on pick up.

    I think i'd really want the grille more than anythng else, but haven't seen many around for less than £120. Any suggestions on other grilles or simple mods for less than £100?


    Cheers guys

    good advice as most the second hand stuff on this site is never more then 6 months old....everyone is always changing!!

    I found my grill to make the biggest impact when I started to mod my astra, other than that a spoiler.

    For any of the above have a look at the LMF site as he does loads of bits for your price tag.....remember to budget for painting as well

    Yeh, i think its gonna have to be a grille. I don't mind second hand at all, and would consider any that were available.

    I'll check out LMF

    cheers guys
