    looks good mate, all that it needs is a drop (30-40mm) and maybe the turbo wheels painted anthracite

    Nice, lights and wheels have made it look at least 5 years newer. Only fairly small things, but make such a big difference.

    Looking good mate, some well thought out touches, as people have said, it really need lowering, 30mm all round on eibach's will make the world of difference.

    The most important thing you can do though, is get whoever owns the GSi and the van to join up
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
