    Finally Cleaned the car today, Lots of Pics

    Hi all

    today i've been busy, fully vacumed the inside and made everything nice and tidy, then washed the outside, washed the hubcaps, gave it the back to black treatment and dried it off.

    I then took the Astra down to roundhay park and took a few shots, my m8 also came down with his astra.

    please feel free to suggest any mods (the cheaper the better, i'm on a student budget u c)

    And here she is:




    One day i'l buy this number plate: lol



    I know that many dont like lexus lights, but i've color coded the seals on mine, tell me what you think:



    Theres a tiny bit of damage to the drivers side panel, caused by me, oh well though, it doesnt seem very major:


    I added the irmy badge yesterday



    Heres the beast


    Repersentin AS:


    And there i was, look all fly with a shynin motor, when my m8 turns up in his ride:


    Mine was still sittin on the podium (curb) untill the park wardens turned up


    Mines still cleaner than his tho




    And that was it. what do ya'll think?

    IMHO you need wheels before you do anything else. Any other body mods will just look silly with wheel trims.

    If your budget is tight - SXi/SRI 16s or some second hand 17s, lowering springs, grill etc.

    The lights look pretty bad to me but it's personal opinion - if you like them then it's all good.
    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

    Get a £25 ebay badgeless grille, and maybe some other vauxhall alloys off a higher spec model.
    dont like your mates kit IMO.
    Possibly but a black strip accross the pillar where the windows are too.

    nice, lights look a lot better with colour coded seals, personally would have put the irmy badge in one of the bottom corners rather than the top
