Hi, I thought I'd take advantage of the Modification Diary so here is the story of my Astra.
I started out with a 1.0L 12v Corsa which I was tastefully modifying, I had 17" wheels, lowered it on Spax coilovers, fitted V6 brakes and was going down the C20XE route when I got offered a price on the corsa as she stood. I knew I'd never make that kind of money on it so I purchased my Astra. Shortly after getting the astra the sale of the corsa fell through so she's being stripped and sold as standard .
Anyway enough of me babbling here are some pics!!!
Dealer Pics of my Astra
I drove all the way up to Leeds in my Corsa to test drive the astra, once I drove it I was in love and had to have it, so a deposit was left, and once I got home, I transferred my insurance and then the long wait until I could pick her up.
Once I got her home I took a few pics of her with her little sister
First mod was some smoked side repeaters courtesy of DIM_DG

Then came the stereo, I was shocked that it had a tape player, I loved the cd changer but just couldn't be bothered to keep messing around with it so my Corsa was robbed of her stereo and into the Astra it went, along with an autoleads connector (no pics of this) so that I could maintain the steering wheel controls

I purchased a badgeless grill from Astra_Dan and finally managed to get some pics up. It looks awesome.
I have also fitted my subs and amp from the Corsa. I'm loving how big the bootspace is in comparason to the corsa.

All she needs now is a good clean the the mods can continue. Next on the list are some bonnet lifters and a Richbrook tax disc holder then a Milltek exhaust system, (just cat back for the moment as I can't afford the full Turbo back and sports cat system at the moment), Bonnet Extension, slight window tints and refurb the wheels as they are slightly curbed. Nothing major but she needs to look perfect
Thanx for looking, hope you like her, i'll keep this post updated as and when I make any mods.
