    Shamelessly copying someone's mods...

    so who here has modded their car in a particular way purely because they've seen the mod on someone elses first?

    I know I have, with my Vec GSi Recaros in my old mk4 estate...

    but what about anyone else..? what did you do? who did you nick the idea from? and what did you do to make it your own slant on things?

    as always I never need an excuse to look at pics, so they would be good too if you've got any comparison shots of the other person's work and your own
    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.

    I got a GSI front bumper for my coupe after seeing C9RUM had one , but I then made mine different by painting the centre section matt black, making it unique for about a month until everyone copied it

    Thats the only thing with modifying something, if it looks good then most people will copy it, bit of a shame when you go to shows and everyone has the same style car

    I copied Geoffs JMS splitter, saying that i think Tom had one on his red coupe, before he chopped it in for a 888 too.

    Either way i still like the relative exclusivity of the JMS splitter.


    and i also copied Keif, i think, on the VDO sat nav oe look install.
    Let the engine bay surgery commence !
    Now where did i put my angle grinder???

    Can't say I have because as far as I know there isn't another zafira anywhere near me that anyone has remotley modded, and I started doing mine before I found this site so a lot of my early ideas were already done but there is plenty more time yet.

    It's not called copying someone else, it's call inspiration!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
