    Newbie

    Hi everyone,

    I was speaking to Chris last night at the Sheffield Cruise, he owns a 5dr Green Astra 1.6 and told me to join up (very friendly guy, thanks mate)

    Names Dave as you may have guessed, im one of the owners of Maxxd.com, I live in Mansfield, Notts.

    I have recently bought a Astra Coupe 2.2 in Aztec Gold, and also own a Mk4 VW Polo that has been the show car for the past few years.

    We have not done anything to the Astra yet, but am looking at the options. Lowering and some 18's to begin with..

    I would be interested in coming to some of your meets in the future and going to the Vauxhall shows if thats cool?

    If anyone has any tips, advice or ideas for the car, gimme a shout.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Wanted one of those at the time but there were none for sale

    Think i'm gonna get the front bumper off one of those for the Coupe.

    I'd love to put a GSI lump in it too, but thats just gonna be an horrendous amount of ££££

    when i went to buy a GSI, i wanted an Arden but there was a 4 week wait on it and just out of coincidence there was a brand new black GSI in the garage round the back ..... so i had to have it and went for black !!!

    Alot of ppl have done the GSI bumper on coop and it does look wicked check out the gallery as i think there is a few pix in there.
