    Question My Potential new car...What you think?

    Here's some pic's of my POTENTIAL new car:





    What you think?

    Obviously if I get it I'll be removing the tow bar, maybe put new rear bumper on it with twin exhaust, bought a badgeless grill too.

    It's a 1.7TD 5 door, I like the lights.

    It's going for an MOT on friday, my test on thursday, if all goes well I could be driving it by SATURDAY!!

    see my post for what I'm installing in it:

    Wish me luck on the test people, I could soon be one of you! lol

    i know, a tow bar really doesn't do it much appreciation does it? lol! does anyone know how to take it off? is it hard?

    Yea was thinking of new front lights, tints, and few other bits and bobs, was really looking a black astra but really hard to find in N.Ireland

    Looks good although the back bumper looks a different colour than the boot. I think silver cars look awesome with a dark tint on the rear lights and yeah the tow bar has to go...

    Although having said that - car modifiying is down to personal taste - that's just my opinion ^^^^

    What's happening with the exhaust tailpipe?

    think the tow bar is bolted to the chassi so it should be about 4 bolts or that holding it?

    Not sure about that rear bumper extension. Rear light masks aren't nice either.

    If the price is right, go for it.

    aw come on simonP I love the rear light covers. I don't really like the rear bumper myself, jesus it's guna cost me more than the car itself to mod.
