    new pics

    Had my Astra for a couple of months now and I'm still ridiculously proud of it lol and getting more and more obsessed with modding it. Budget is a problem so starting off slow! Fitted a new head unit (Panasonic CQ-C8405n with iPod cable) last week and put this new grill on yesterday. Thinking debadging the rear and lowering next! Opinions welcome!

    That'll be down to oxidisation on the paint.

    Woolcat, nice start you've made there, could do with a good detail to bring the red through though

    there's a comma there, meaning he'll do some colour coding, and fit a different front splitter. But you can colourcode the OE one, but it won't last long

    I will be colour coding the sides and the skirts...didn't realise you couldn't do the splitter though
    looking on other threads i'm thinking 40mm all round on springs rather than full shock and spring kit (budget probs again lol) and possibly tinted windows. Would really like some alloys but can't find any I like cheap enough! Want some black 17's or wide black 16's to fill the arches.
    And needs a damn good polish!
