    as i said before mate, very nice! looks like a very clean example.

    Plans to mod it? Highline wheels and a suspension kit would be a good move, i think they are best kept stealthy - i took the VR6 badges of mine, surprised a few people that way.

    Cheers mate
    The only thing i'm thinking of is maybe replacing the black sill protectors for red ones and also sorting the black valance on the front and rear bumpers, maybe a debadged grille too. Then just a exhaust, nothing loud though maybe a milltek or jetex and a performance panel filter.
    For now anyway

    yeah good plan, i heard the Jetex system is excellent for them and also they sound awsome with an induction kit but im not sure if your better just with a filter performance wise.

    Today i've taken it for the first pointless drive alone since i've had it and decided to put the hammer down as i've been driving calmly with family and friends, that put a smile on my face

    I'm still gonna hang around the site and finally try to get to some meets now i'm mobile, even though i don't have an astra

    I suppose you get you "I drive and Golf so now have a licence to drive like a total .anker" certificate in the post?

    Sorry, I'm having a bad time with Golf drivers at the moment, nearly run off the road about 10 times in the last few weeks by Golfs.

    The VR6 is a flier, and you should get another 50k out of it before needing any serious engine work.
