    Tim's Sri

    well... this is taken from another forum i co-run.. Just all the things i have done mainly put into one. will sort through it at a later date.

    Thought i better start one, will be slow progess as i have no money all the time, but good to keep a record.
    Anyway the car is a 2003 Vauxhall Astra Sri 1800 16v 3 Door.

    Here it is on the forecourt.




    And here not long after once i washed it at work.






    The first mod that i did was simply putting in my Apline Headunit and ipod adapter from the 106. And when i got it the camshaft postition sensor was faulty as was the thermostat so fitted these at work and got the parts at trade price so nice and cheap

    Then for Xmas shell got me a set of personalised plates which i have wanted for ages so i fitted these.





    And thats about it for now.

    Random ones of mine at a staff photoshoot.





    List to do:

    Fit Coilovers - On there way.
    Colour code skirts and side rub strips.
    Tint windows - Light or medium shade.
    Possibly cams and a remap.
    Source a standard air box as came with a cone filter.
    Irmischer grille and exhaust.
    Get a phone kit or save up for a headunit with this included (monitor one)
    Re-spray bonnet as too many stone chips for my liking.

    And thats about it. not sure when most of this will get done as its hard getting money together as an apprentice.

    They are finally here:



    going to fit them tomorrow morning before work.

    they need a good clean up first though.

    well got bored yday so lowered it a bit more and also gave it a clean today then had a pic whore session....

    Before Clean:


    During Clean


    After Clean















    now fitted the side skirts and door mouldings after taz has sprayed them, but thinking need the front splitter thingy painting too now, as it looks out of place.

    well we got bored at CJ's so attacked my dash, we rushed it and it came out all gay and bubbled in places and so on.. but i read on the astra forum that the plastic doesnt always take well to being painted. some parts came out lush.. some didnt so gonna have to have another go at it at a later date... but looks good in pics as cant see how gay it looks.

    had a little play....






    Yes they are Audi a5 wheels and turned out to be a direct fit to my car.

    255/35/19 tyres, couldnt lower it completely off jack without adjusting my coilovers, but they would fit if i raised it.
