    What Mods

    I need ideas for interior/exterior mods I can do to my Astra that are subtle.. I have already:

    Changed the girll to the new style Irmscher one..

    Added Irmscher door pins..

    Added 5"tft to the dash and dvd player.

    Did have vauxhall wheel nuts till some bugger stole 2 of them ( why 2, vauxhall dont make motorbikes!! ).

    Added Vauxhall tax disk holder...

    I have a new set of numberplates on order for it...

    I have decided to keep the standard wheels as they are in mint condition and look good.
    I was planning on changing the gear knob ( although it is an Irmscher one ) because the previous owner was a woman who had rings on her left hand to scratch it with.. Any suggestions ( bottom right reverse ).

    Any ideas welcome..

    a bit of colour coding would go down a treat imo... maybe some window tints?

    as for the interior - the arm rest was my favourite mod.

    you could paint the calipers £6 for the paint from B&Q
    the arm rest is the best mod you can to inside the car but you may have a fight over how get to use it its that good
    other parts of the lower Irmscher body kit ?? or a coupe bumper
    SriT rear lip
