    Few wee touches done. *Updated*

    Nothing fancy, just removed the vxl and astra badges replaced the griffin with an opel jobby and removed bertone badges from the sides.

    Before:



    After (+ a wash):




    Inside I fitted my JVC mp3 headunit - really pleased with this as it has an SD card slot which is nice. Also fitted the best mod you can do to a mk4 - the arm rest (courtesy of MarkC's one man car boot sale.)

    No laughing at the horrid seats please!






    I was going to buy some silvertec bulbs for the front then I found some silver paint in the garage - can't beat a free mod lol

    Before:




    After:



    Also fitted the opel opc grill as you can see.

    And the most important mod of all, got my plate on:




    And thats pretty much it, got a few niggles to sort out but for now I'm just enjoying the car as it is. Any future money will be spent on suspension and engine mods as I'm happy with the outside as it is really. Oh, and I need to get opel centre caps for the wheels too.

    That's the important little details sorted then (apart from the door pins...), nice one. I'd remove the turbo badge as well myself but I can understand the desire to keep it.

    Suspension then new interior would be next on my list

    Knew I forgot something lol - door pins are a must of course.

    It's funny, I've always been one for removing all the badges I can... but I can't quite bring myself to remove the turbo badge just yet Probably will at some point though.

    Lol, can't say I blame you. I'd prob find it hard to take off the turbo badge at first too

    Sure it won't be too long before it starts bugging you though

    Arm rest is great, its the copy irmy one which is a pretty damn good copy (had the irmy one in my SXi). 4 screws in about as many minutes and its in.

    Not bought the caps yet, needs to get the wheels refurbed before I do much else tbh. They look a lot better in pics than they do in real life unfortunately.
