    Smile 18`s are now on(with pics)

    Finally, pics of my new wheels. They are BK240 in chrome, oh and are 18`s. They cost a lot more than the original Wolfrace version that I was going to buy but as soon as I saw these I had to have a set. Tyres are Federal 215/35/18 and opted for flush fit valves as well.

    Also had the tilt motion sensor and proximity sensor fitted to the clifford alarm, for that extra piece of mind.











    My old smith dragons will be on Richie Ritch`s car soon.

    Looking good mate.

    A set of coupe headlights would go down a treat on that now.

    Thanks guys, door handles and mirrors will be colour coded next month when I get the wings smoothed and new spoiler fitted. Might as well get it all done at once, not worth colour coding a bit at a time. The pics don`t really show the wheels in all their glory, weather has been pretty crap recently.

    The current spoiler is up for sale if anyone is interested. It`s a Vectra Evo spoiler which has been modified to fit the astra. It does look good and looks different from various angles.

    Still cannot find a suitable front bumper though, decided against the Reiger one as I want to go for something a bit different.

    I want to go for a big jap style front but the ones I`ve seen so far do not suit the astra at all, there must be something out there somewhere, it`s just a case of finding it. I quite like the JC Design and Samurai kit so it might be a case of modifying an existing bumper.

    Otherwise, all suggestions welcome!!, websites.............
