    Hello Peeps

    Hiya been browsing the site for a while now, for about a month as i've been in the market for a new motor. Seems like a nice community you have here.

    I'm now the proud owner of a 99 Astra 1.8 Sport and in the few days I've had it, I have to say I'm impressed at how nippy it is compared to my old Mondeo SI (long time ago, been imprisoned in an ancient Nissan Micra for a year since owning the mondeo - Its a sore subject and i'd rather not have it mentioned ever again ops: ).

    Has anyone got a link for the centre armrest mod some peeps have been doing and an idea of the cost involved? Its the one thing i really miss.

    Also what other cheap mods can be done? I'm a complete learner when it comes to doing anything other than filling a tank full of petrol, and emptying through the exhaust. For once I want to make a car I own nice to look at .

    Anyway hello.

    Hi mate and welcome to As.

    Cheap mods..........

    Debadge rear end - but not the Griffin as there be holes behind there (free)
    Derestrict the airbox, fit a panel filter and a Vectra C air intake (Circa £50)
    Astra Sport stickers (£2.50 each)

    After that it depends on what you define as cheap,
