    Central Console Idea

    Hi people I am a new member of this forum but I have one thing in common with you all in that I too own an Astra which I would like to modify. I own an Astra 2001 1.9DTi down in the Mediterranean and have till now added a set of alloys and a rear booth spoiler. I am thinking of doing an interior modification in changing the central console but are not sure whether it makes more sense to change the whole console to gun-metal grey or the other option for aluminium.

    Your comments would be greatly appreciated together with any pictures.

    Keep it up with the discussion I find it very interesting and it gives me some ideas too for personal modification.

    Welcome to the Forums

    I would change the console to the grey ones available. It's easy enough to do, and all the parts are readily available from your local Vauxhall dealer.

    Welcome

    I think it depends on what colour the car and interior already is. I have a black astra and a black interior so i've just added small grey or crome parts to the back console thats already there and i think it looks well.

    Each to there own really.

    welcome to the site,
    not sure about the center console, mine is black and im just going to leave it this way, will chrome it up a bit to add a bit of bling but i preffer it in black, if your going to do it get it all done down to the handbrake, will look much better in my opinion

    By the way I just remember that I forgot to tell you that the car is metallic black and 3 door.

    I've seen both variations on a variety of cars and the whole thing looks cool from the inside. Some colleaugues of mine who are also Astra owners have suggested changing the whole console down to the handbrake to a gun-metal grey one as it looks more similar to the original one rather than the aluminium console that just includes the central part in that material. Considering that there are chrome handles on the inside and that its black and that there are also the chrome heater dials what do you suggest.

    Is it also possible to see some pictures of the two variations on any of your Astra's.

    Thanks

    Welcome mate
    Either get a bodyshop to spray the parts or you could try and spray the parts yourself if your feeling brave
