    Cool Gregg's Astra SRI 2.0

    Bought the car back in July 2006 off my girlfriends dad was up for 3349 got it for 2750 which I was happy at.
    Had cambelt and waterpump replaced before I received the car just incase any problems arose.

    Here is a pic of the day I had the car.

    As you can see nothing special just a stock 2.0 SRI but I was happy with my choice and was grinning for some time







    After about 5 days of owning the car I had purchased a slatted grille and some 40mm lowering springs. They were fitted without hesitation shortly after I had some tinted rear lights so the rear end looked a bit more modern

    Around October I bought a rather nice DVD head unit. Since this picture I have now got it fitted much more flush to the rest of the centre console



    And the car stood like this. Which I was happy with until early December 2006





    But as we all know, however much you think your cars complete it never really is.

    So early December 2006 I purchased some Bk racing 17” alloys in a chrome finish, know you may like them but I didn’t so they were sold after around 3 weeks of having them, Nice waste of money there L



    After the sale of the chrome alloys I said to myself, parents, girlfriend and some users of astrasport that I wouldn’t be buying another set.

    9 days after the sale of the chrome alloys I found myself purchasing some dark anthracite alloys personally feel along with lowering this is the biggest improvement to my astra it looks mean and moody





    Plans for the future, debadge the rear end fit some darker headlights and some engine work also.
