    back for more (56k warning) - updated at bottom

    well folks i'm back with another G - finally got my insurance malarky sorted out although not entirely to my satisfaction but couldn't be bothered letting it drag on any more when should have been sorted out way before it's 11 month!!

    anyways i got myself an 02 plate 1.8 sxi (5dr) - only 29k on the clock and FVSH - she was a really well looked after motor - only gripe would be a deep(ish) scratch on the front bumper but will be looking to change the bumper in the coming months at some point so not too worried and a small dent in the top of the boot which is easily sorted when car is getting a few select mods done to it. going to go down the subtle route i think

    here's some pics - although everyone knows what a standard G looks like lol










    Now for the good bits!


    When she came home i put my old Lexus Efforts on just to be slightly off the norm until i decide what i'm going to do. Debadged the boot apart from the faithful Griffin and also de-restricted the airbox and stuck a K&N filter in for good measure







    Got my ICE wired up but working on my subtle install so no pics at the moment apart from this of my false floor drying with easy access to spare wheel ;-)



    Lastly on Tuesday past i got a new grill and Angel Eyes from LMF - very good service indeed. These were my first set of headlights that i had fitted and found the huge thread about them on here, posted recently, a good help so thanks for that one guys, much appreciated!!













    Got my old M3 mirrors in the garage, sitting doing nothing so will get them re-sprayed and get my door handles and bump-strips colour coded aswell over the next couple of months and got to get the bonnet catch sorted aswell as sticks out a bit much

    Anyways sorry about the massive post but just chuffed to be back in the seat of an astra again hehe.

    Any comments welcome

    Found the sticker lying around and only had 1 so thought why not put it on the airbox lol - think it looks quite effective myself

    Nope just left them - don't know whether to go back and do them though??


    Not alot of people liked the rear lights before on my red G but i like them as they make the rear a bit different - i am thinking of the clear ones tho like M4nd had

    update at the moment:

    new exhaust on



    went up to sounds of silence like this though - for obvious reasons ;-) haha



    decided to colour code the centre console aswell - will be looking into new gearknob and handbrake handle eventually once i get round to it and hopefully speaking to Mr Yale to provide gaiters again as the red ones i got for my old astra were superb!
