    what can you tell me about this coupe?

    found some pics on the net when looking for coupe's...

    its from a german site, and whilst I can see they're Irmscher sportstars, I wonder if anyone can help with an idea of what size they are, and thus what drop he's made in order to get it to sit like that. its almost exactly how I want mine to sit (when I finally get round to buying one! )

    also, what other mods can you see? looks very subtle, but definately modified. think they're Irmy mirrors by the look of it? not sure on anything else though!

    any thoughts?









    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    Look like 18's, with a 40/60 drop at a guess. Irmy mirrors and rear skirts, and lip spoiler

    Deffinatly 18's and scottys right about the drop I recon. It looks identical to mine. I'm on 18's with 60/40 eibachs.







    Not the best pics of my motor but they show the drop quite well. If you plan on going the same route you need to roll or cut the rear arches back and modify the bumper brackets as the rims are a crazy 8J ET35. Some people get away with stretching 215 tyres on them to give more clearance but they dont look good, the 225's are better and provide a tiny amount of rim protection. On the plus side the handeling is fantastic, the rim width and offset give you an extra 2" track and it makes a big difference, I can understand why 888 went down that route with the coupe. I wonder what size and offset the 888 rims are? anyone?
