    Astra Coupe Styling Questions?

    I had a look in the styling guide section however cant find much.

    What replacement tail lights are available for the coupe?

    What projector style headlights are available?

    From what I can remember from my 3dr the front lights, front bumper are the same on the hatch and coupe? Also is the bonnet the same on the coupe to the hatch?

    Finally can the chrome strip on the boot lid be removed without leaving any holes or anything?

    Thanks in advance.

    Bonnet and front lights are the same through out the whole of the astra g range, I believe the chrome boot strip can be removed as it's only stuck on

    I'll let someone else answer the rear light question cause i'm not sure exactly what is avaiable, there are a few sets though

    A couple of styles of lexus lights and a not very nice looking light conversion for the rear

    How does the chrome strip come off, does it damage the paint when removed if its glued on?

    Not much choice in the way of lights then! Thought their would have been alot more out by now for the coupe.

    No, they're a different style all together, but fully interchangable with each other

    Yeah sorry thats what I meant, as in anything that any front bumpers that fit the hatch will also fit the coupe!

    Yep - Two quite a popular mods are to stick......

    a coupe bumper on a hatch &
    a GSI hatch bumper on a coupe

    Both suite the body shape better than the original.

    The rears aren't swapable as the coupe is longer at the ass end than the hatch
