    Astra mk4 Saloon?

    Has anyone done much with these?

    was thinking one of these could look nice with some irmscher kit, 18's, lowered, coupe irmscher spoiler?

    was looking at a 2.0 16v dti ls in particular, interior doesnt bother me so much as i have a good trimmer capable of a pukka retrim for little dosh.

    could it look smart or will it always be a grandad mobile?

    or do i just pay alot extra and old out for a 2.0 16v dti sri?

    Irmscher styling guide picture in the main astra catalogue uses a saloon

    yeah

    ive seen the catalogue, thats what made me think.

    rear end is very similar to a coupe any way

    we've got an 03 silver ls 2.0 16v dti saloon coming into stock end of the week, so finding one isnt an issue

    They look superb with a kit.

    I started seeing a few around last year, all the same reg with Irmscher kit and 16" wheels, so I am guessing they were giving the kit free in an attempt to get rid of them.

    Go for it, our Parts manager has a 1.6 16v Club saloon with the full Irmscher kit and old style SRi alloys, looks mint.
