    That looks well smart!!
    Does it fit without cutting??? In the right place too, ie not half covered by the bumper like the standard one!!
    Any difference in performance?
    mmmmmmmm, nice try!

    And doesnt look like it restricts flow like some other aftermarket intercoolers.

    Nice, will keep an eye on this one. Let me know if you fancy it being tested, im sure we can arrange something.

    finally the start of bigger and better intercoolers on the astra G...the standard one is a joke....the aftermarket ones before now are an even bigger joke (why make a bad design bigger ???)

    I have said for ages that this was a great route to take and that it would happen in time! Soon enough it has Looks great .....noticed any differance in performance, temp etc?

    oh can I use the pic for the mod guide ?
