    Pic Request

    Hi im fairly new here although ive been registered for a while ive not used the site

    Just purchased an Astra gsi turbo,

    Now the thing that bothers me is i want a badgeless grille but i cant find one that matches the mesh in to bottom bumper,

    so to compromise i decided i like the Opel OPC grille, has any1 got a pic of one of these on an arden blue gsi?

    also what sort of exhaust is best? within around the £350 range? de-cat it? i bought a pre-cat removal pipe already, i want a decent grunt but no high pitched rasping,


    bit of a lengthy post for my 1st one, but i want to get things right with this astra

    thanks for any help in advance


    i will post pics of my car in due course

    Hi and Welcome to AS/AOC

    Exhaust wise the majority seem to go for Miltek or Blueflame!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Hello & welcome fellow highlander! An OPC grille will suit your GSi bumper mesh and you have the option to put the griffin in place of the Opel badge or re-badge the rest of the car as an Opel. I've got a Scorpion cat back system on my SRi-T and it's an excellent fit with a nice note to it.

    Hey ShEp I'm from Stornoway - where abouts are you? I have the Scorpion Evo on mine which is the oval tailpipe design.

    cheers pepe, its now ordered

    I'm from Dingwall mate, I just recently bought a car from up your way, a corsa sport 1.4 P81UJS do you know it? just got it to get me through a few weeks

    the evo looks good, may do some more investigation into that

    P81 UJS - now that plate rings a bell, is it a purple/blue coloured sport with the 3 spoke sport alloys? Quite a few modded Vauxhalls up this neck of the woods
