    Hmmm, generally no but certain cars pull it off (The old M1GST for example).
    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

    It looks ok if done properly, and the number plate is mounted decently.

    I've never been keen on this one myself. It's too big a flat area so it just looks bland. Plus, why bother if you have to hack up a bumper or fit the plate somewhere that just looks out of place? Seems a bit silly to me.

    It can look okay if the rest of the car is very smooth and some real care has gone into the number plate relocation, but most of the time the best bet would be standard, but de-locked and de-badged imo.

    As soon as I got my Astra I had the boot smoothed, personally think it looks perfect on the G with a good bumper gives it one sexy arse...a peach!!!!

    the car has gotta be able to pull it off...
    The silver astra in Joem's pics doesnt do its self any justice... it looks shit, whereas Beano's motor looks the mutts nutts!

    I wouldn't recommend it on a 5dr hatch and it also depends on what spoiler you have, the bumper, mounting of the reg plate and the lights. Beano's and (as sten mentioned) the old MIGST really pull it off
