    Astra Coupe. Do i fit a boot spoiler or not?

    I have recently bought an astra coupe and am starting to think about moding it. I have fitted a K&N panel filter and an irmscher grille. Now i dont know what to do. I am either thinking about a rear spoiler, new alloys or new rear lights. Can anyone suggest what to do. Even better if you have pics can you let me see. If its a spoiler what one do i go for?

    The coupe looks odd without one I think (Mine doesnt have one either )
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    You need some sort of spoiler on a coupe even a lip spoiler otherwise the rear looks unfinished IMO

    any ideas on what to fit? there are very limited coupe spoilers available. I dont want anything to big. Do the 3/5 door spoilers fit the coupe. anyone got any pics of what i could get and where from?

    imo - astras looks better without spoilers.

    ..however the coupe suits it more than the hatch.

    Which spoiler depends on how heavily you intend to modify mate.
    If you`re going down the Irmy/Reiger route, then a standard coupe turbo spoiler would suit best IMO.

    Speak to Steve at LMF - he has a 888 spoiler going for a great price - I would have bought it if I didn't have one already!!!

    Very subtle but certainly not boring......
