    Anyone got a bonnet bra?

    Well bennet bras seem to be the new in thing for euro people at the moment.

    I have seen them on loads of cars but never an astra so just wondered if anybody had one?

    bonnet bras have been on euro cars for the past 10 years so not really new to the euro scene in europe but a little more common over here these days. You can buy spercific trimmed ones (german ebay) but you are better off getting a trimming place to make one for your car.

    fair enough. thats just ignorance on my part then.

    I wasnt really thinking of getting one just wondered what they would look like on an astra. Im not sure the astra front end would lend itself to one.

    theyve been on american cars for as long as i can remember, i think they look nice on those euro golfs.

    had a look myself for an astra one but no such luck.

    sometimes they look ugly but its what it is there for to protect the bonnet that makes it worth it. when i went to florida alot of cars had the whole of the front bumper and tip of the bonnet in them thats wa i would want on mine i might try and get one made up for a gsi bumper for when i get that.
