    Opinions pls

    Hi to you all, first time on the website and well impressed with all the info avalible. Need your opinions as i'm just about to start the modding process. Alloys, suspension, slight bodywork etc. .

    I more into looks than speed, altough speed is always good

    Was planning to spray my bump strips, door handles and front spliter. Whats your thoughts on painting the bump strips or getting rid if them all together? Whats this idea like on price etc. .

    Cheers people

    If you have the cash smooth them out and they will look 10x better than painted IMO. But it will cost a lot so its whether or not you think it is worth the expense.

    I'd say around £100-£175 for handles and bump strips to be sprayed at a bodyshop, then about that again for a splitter to be fitted and sprayed.

    if it's an everyday car, spray the bump strips, else you'll end up with dents in your doors which will look gash!!

    Going for the spraying the bump strips, would like to smooth it all but agree with some of ya, its too much faffin and i do use it everyday.

    Been quoted at a local bodyshop for a full respray, including bump strips, door handles, side skirts and roof rack runners £700??? Good or Bad???

    Need help with finding a front bumper. I like the coupe one but a Astra in my local area has one on already and i like to be different. Thinking of a GSI?? What's your thoughts boy's and girls??

    Cheers

    That's a whole lotta red!!! But it looks good. Only thing I would say is that shadow chrome/grey wheels don't look quite right - think they either need to be properly black, or very shiny silver.
