    My Astra - Eventually!!







    Fitted this grille yesterday, £35 i think off Ebay



    I know i know, Looks kind of CID Stylee at the moment

    Trying to find some wheels for it at the moment.

    Also got some lowering springs on the way soon hopefully.

    Going to swap the tangerines on the side aswell for clear ones with a mate who is selling his.

    Currently sat in the car while the other half is taking the badges are being taken off

    Comments and ideas welcome

    So you spotted the tangerines on the side then huh? LOL

    Got a mate that is selling his MK4 so he said i can swap them for his clear ones. Aswell as a set of lowering springs

    Thanks for the offer though

    Still trying to source rims, have money just trying to find some!

    Have got my eye on a few sets on Mig. Going to go and have a look at them soon.

    Decided that im going to get the bumpers colour coded for now, until i can source some more that i want, need to get the spoiler painted aswell.

    And that shitty aerial is coming off, looked good on my corsa but i hate it on the astra. Think the standard one is going back on LOL

    Oops i have written an essay

    A good start

    You also need to replace the griffin badge on the boot to match the grill. I remember changing all the griffin badges (bar the steering wheel) to the opel ones on my first MK4 GSI.
