    Question Need Help Please? Discreet Mods

    Hi all

    I've got an Astra club 8v on an X-Reg and i want to mod it. But av got a couple of problems,

    1)i'm an 18 year old student, therefore the budgets not very good (mind you neither is the insurance), so this means no turbo's or superchargers.

    2)Major problem - when i bought the car, my dad payed half, and also insured it in his name but i still payed for the insurance. The major problem is that my dad hates modifications. Even if i talk about getting new wheels he flips out. So i've decided to dicreetly mod the car. Its important that my dad cant see the mods, so big wheels and body kits are out of the question.

    I've got an alpine which i could only buy because the car came with a tape.

    i've decided on the following mods:
    Footwell Neons
    K&N panel filter, de restrict airbox and veccy c intake
    i want to put a night rider light under the grill but i'm not sure.


    any ideas?????????????????

    Thanks

    P.S i know that the 8 valve is not the fastest astra, but i'm a student.

    P.S.S when i phoned the insurer and they asked me what car it was, i said "its a vauxhall astra 1.6 club V8" which is the reason they spend 20 mins "looking for the car on thier system"

    He'l just tell me to hand over the keys .he paid half for it and its in his name (coz apparently you can only insure a car thats in ur or ur spouses name). one of my mates buys and sells cars, he's just got an old primera in, but its got some nice wolfrace 17"s on it, told dad, he flipped out. so i just wanna discreetly mod it, that'll keep the both of us happy.

    Thanks for you super fast replies

    The first mod I would suggest is some legal insurance for the car
    Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
    Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150

    Tbh i would just do what i like to it he isnt the one that has to drive it, mate you have to wake up to the fact your 18 and can do your own think not act like a 12yr. (Not saying that you have to tell them no to everything as a bit of respect is always good) but when it comes to them sayingn hand over the keys that just isnt a option)
    Heading back to the world of AOC
