    Request for help

    Hi there,

    I am new here so please be nice,

    I am going to be getting a mk4 Astra 1.4 16v LS as my first car soon and i know roughly what i want to do with it but i dunno where to start,

    I am BIG into my ICE and i already have all the system to go into the car so thats sorted but i dont know where to start on the styling side ?

    I want to go euro style on the car so all very smooth and clean , i dont like big meshed bumpers and all that stuff,

    Also i dont know what colour car to get and this will be important as i wont be getting a respray but my current 'favourites' are, black, silver, red or possibly a blue ?

    So advice please guys ?

    Cheers

    Jonny

    Hi mate welcome to AS.

    the best place to gain inspiration for your new car is to take a look-see at the styling guide in the technical guides at the top of the main page. Check with your insurance before you do anything tho as some will sting you.

    As for colours, any of those will do - I prefer blue (as i've got one) but black and red are both great colours.

    I am definately getting 18" rims and they have gotta be chrome and i also like the look of deep dish rims on the astra , what do you think ?

    i thought about black for the car with the chrome rims and smoot or colour code everything else so its kinda a gangsta/pimp/euro mix but i am not sure if the euro style will work with the black ???

    Cheers

    Deep dish rims don't look as big. As the dish plays a trick on the eye. Personally i can't see the point in spending the extra cash on 18's for them to look like 17's.

    Black car on chrome rims looks cool.

    Welcome to Astra Sport by the way.

    Cheers for the welcomes lads,

    Maybe deep dish was a bad plan but i am definately having chromes,

    Also if i do have the car sat on some 18's how much will i be able to lower by ? i only plan to use springs to start with,

    I am going to have a blitz over the net to see what i like

    Cheers

    welcome to the site !

    Im sure you could lower it 40mm and it would be fine. Someone else should be able to confirm this or tell me to shut up

    As far as colour goes. If you are planning to get loads of bits sprayed I would go for black. Easier to match.

    If you want something subtle go for irmscher styling and get everything somthed over and colour coded. Chromes on a black car look nice too.

    Ask Divma for a pic of his coupe. BLING !
    im bored !

    Cheers dude, i think a 40mm drop will be enough for me, i have about 60kg of bass to go in as well though lol,

    I have just looked at the reiger site and the infinity 4 bumper looks nice, what kits on yours ?

    Cheers
