    Hey all, First post, car pic included...

    Hi All,

    Im Ste, and recently got my Astra 1.6 8v Active... it looks like this:



    Have a few plans to the car, but nothing major, mainly color code the bump/side strips, debadged grill, and maybe angel eyes on the front.

    What you guys think?

    Im not going for the all out excuse the pun "Chavved" motor, im going for the subtle yet sleek.

    tis my first road going vehicle (bought a rover previously, never drove it) so i want something nice.

    Thanks

    Ste

    well, so far, none of the mods have been done by myself.

    the wheels are 17's running on 205/40's - i happen to like the look of the car with these on, but they need a refurb, previous owner seemed to like kurbs.
    its took a 40mm drop
    powertec induction
    powerflow exhaust
    ecu remap
    and the spoiler.

    all i really have planned is color coding the bump strips and i bought a badgless grill the other day - awaiting delivery (not irmscher - couldnt afford it - only 19 )
    i wouldnt mind some skirts either, but im happy with the look of the front bumper anyways and the back bumper is in a bit of a mess where the guy who had it before bodged a hole around the 3" exhaust so that needs making look better, need some heat sheilding or something (recommendations?)

    in the not too distant future too i wouldnt mind getting the interior re-upholstered in leather/suede, but that too will come at a price.

    doofy - what lights you got on the fronts they look good!

    i will be needing advice soon enough, so atleast now ive found astrasport.co.uk i know where to come

    thanks for the positive responses so far.

    yeah, but then again, cars are my second love, my first love is making music, so all my money goes into that, which is why i dont have the money to go all out and do a spot on astra
    the astra is for getting me to and from gigs with guitar equipment, and to and from work.

    if i wasnt in a band, then more than likely all my wages would go on my car, and i'd have a pretty special car. but for now, its just a part time hobby.
