    Look at the amazing performance mod I bought of EBAY

    Lol

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...8779&rd=1&rd=1

    Except I won't mount mine on the top of my car like most, I'm thinking it will act as a nice diffuser under the rear bumper of the coupe. Bumper is standard except for the irmscher corner splitters

    What do you all think?

    Personally I think its a load of tat that you will never ever need on a street car.

    It may look good though once done.

    I knew someone would bring that up. Not really an everyday road car is it with services every 4000 miles. Suggests to me its been developed for motorsport rather than the 70Mph limits of the motorway.

    Should have said they are to help the aerodynamics of the rear spoiler,so having them under ther the rear valance will lift it up

    If you don't kill whatever you run over with the front bumper, the back bumper will be sure to cut them up when they come out the other end lol

    Not a fan at all, cheap tat IMO, but i'll wait untill i see them on - afterall it is something different.

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though

    I just thought the valance looks a bit sparse and might look a bit difference. Yes I agree its cheap TAT also which is why I won't feel so bad binning it if I don't like it.

    Not quite the same as an astra coupe though is it really. That evo is an already very quick car that's been further tweaked by some extremely geeky people to turn it into a 400bhp monster (and a rather pointless one at that).

    If Haulme likes it from a cosmetic view then fine, it's his car. However, there's no point in thinking that what he's bought will do anything noticeable whatsoever to the performance of his car
