    Nice, looks good, are they Corsa SRI alloys?

    How about changing your headlights to the tinted ones, Irmy rear lights maybe and colour coded side strips/door handles, bee sting ariel, maybe de-badged rear.

    A few ideas for you

    looks good mate (especially the centre pipe ). i presume your talking about the pro-drive bumper when your talking about the SRi bumper? if you are i think the coupe bumper would look better and different. maybe the pro-drive bumper would make your wheels look tiny? not sure really.

    How about some new brakes (discs for the rear and 308's for the front)?

    Painted brake caliper/drum??

    Tinted headlights/taillights/side repeaters??

    Astra-Sport Stickers in rear windows??
    0-60 in 6.5 secs and 48mpg- winner!
