    Much neeed advice

    Alrighty then!
    Currently got a standard SXi and am thinking of getting this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/VAUXHALL-ASTRA-G...QQcmdZViewItem
    Quite cheap I know but thats pretty much all I can afford for a kit.
    Any opinions?

    Also looking for some nice alloys, anyone got any recommendations, advice?

    Thanks,
    Chris.

    I wouldn't buy it because:-

    - It is GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic)

    - Looking at the feedback and it says about sending cash in the post, and not a good fitting Astra bumper, plus other comments about poor quality.

    no offence to the other kid, but at least you know what you're buying is pukka and it won't crack if your look at it the wrong way.

    well its made of ABS isnt it? so it's got a bit of flex in it rather than bein too rigid.
