    Mod Advise

    I have just bought a '02' MK4 1.8SXI last week, which is still pretty much as standard as when it rolled out of the factory.

    I was just after a bit of advise on what to do to sport it up a little. I dont want to do much to it, rear spoiler and maybe a de-badged grill is all I have thought about at the moment. Are there any certain make of spoiler I should keep away from, and are there any recommendations on averagely prices spoilers and wher to get them from.

    Any other ideas??

    Cheers
    Dan

    Welcome Dan.

    Heres a list of things you may want to do...
    Engine
    Cat back stainless steel system
    Remap
    Fast Road cams
    Dblias intake
    Service regulary

    Bodywork.
    There are plenty of body kits out there. Just look on...
    Ebay
    LMFVauxhall.co.uk
    Regal-shop.co.uk
    Irmscher.de

    Body work is to your own taste no one elses.

    Interior
    Arm rest
    Retrim the seats
    Paint centre console and plastics
    Add guages (if your that way inclined)
    Change seats
    www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk is probably your best bet for help with the interior

    Chassis
    Well it all depends on what you want for your car
    Extremely low for shows = Airbags or coilovers
    Very low = Eibach 50/30 sportline springs & Koni dampers
    Subtle but lowered = Eibach 30/30 springs
    Upgrade brakes (disc, pads larger sizes)

    Alloys always make the car so take alot of time of this and don't skimp on them.

    Cheers for the above websites, i have been looking on ebay for a spoiler, looking for an Irmscher one, I assume im better going for one of these rather than one of the cheaper ones, Ive seen a couple which are sagging on some Astra's.

    As i said, befor though, not planning on doing that much to it at the moment, just the spoiler (if i can find one) and a plain grill, that should do me for now.

    Ive got a badgeless grill on mine and really makes the front end, then i got some coupe style headlights which added a final touch. Thats what id go for if you want subtle.

    For the back im getting a Zender Flash AG 1 spoiler and irmscher dark lens rear lights. Thinking about a lowered bumper lip though.

    Done naff all to the interior upto yet.

    Ive lowered it 40/40 on springs and have 17" wolfrace spyders which sit well and don't rub.
