    Ideas for mods my Astra 1.6 MK4

    First of all I'd like to say congratulations for the good forum
    I found many useful.

    I don't know about modifications but I have some ideas in my my mind

    My car is Astra CD 1.6i 16v classic Auto

    Suspension:
    I think Koni SDI is the best for stability and bad roads (many here )
    I hope I can have ESP , can it be?

    Alloys:
    I want to install BBS 16 but I can not find it here.
    Still searching for the best alternative.

    Performance:
    KN kit or replacement Filter - didn't decide yet.
    Splitfire spark
    I don't know what else can be done.
    I alos have very bad fuel consuming 6.5 KM per L I don't know what the problem is.


    exterior:
    I want to have the mirrors close auto with power of I don't know what is called.

    I want to have the chrome bar back in the back like MK5.

    Interior:
    I already bluetooth car kit , mirror and parking sensors.
    good sound system , infinity speaker and Sony Explode CD/MP3.

    I want to install , cruise control and Trip computer (now scangauge thanks to Astra_Den)



    please I need your recommendations and any additional ideas will be appreciated.

    thanks

    Nice car..... Love the Chevrolet version...

    Plenty of options, could upgrade the brakes, wheels, try looking for BBS wheels from a Calibra DTM 2.0 16v Ecotec engine, or the ones from a VW golf/POLO

    Keep us all posted on your progress with the car

    Thanks Markc, actually I have a problem finding information about it on the net.

    please what upgrade can be done for the brakes?

    it's easy to install ESP , Cruise Control , the agent told me that ESP will cost about 2,000$ because ABS need to be changed.

    Is that true?

    Do you have ideas about mods to put it in my plan.

    @heidi:
    Thank you , spoiler is a good idea , I didn't think about it.
    Alloys are in the plan , still I didn't chose the brand

    Any suggestion for some brands but hard enough for bad roads and light for more speed.??

    I can not describe how bad is roads here , almost no street without holes or high stoppers , lowering is impossible.
