    Standard or Mod?

    I have just bought an Astra Sri 2.0 16v (black) . It comes with full Irmscher kit as standard. Should I leave it standard or mod the car? If I mod it I would go for Gsi front bumper, Gsi spoiler, Pro drive rear skirt and thats about it. I will be upgrading the alloys no matter what to a standard set of Vauxhall 17 Inch. I just don't know what to do with it. I will also be upgrading the lights to the newer smoked one. I bought this car from a salvage yard and start working on it on Monday. Thanks for any advice. Mark

    Keep it understated and mod the living hell out of the engine but not the body work. The looks you get from BMW drivers and mercs who can't out perform you!!!

    !!!Sleeper on the road!!!

    I think I will leave it as it is for now then, I just hope I have a front bumper with the car when I get it, as they tend to put them in the back of the car when they come off. I left my last Astra standard with the Irmscher kit on, as it looked well with the car being lowered. Thanks
