    need some inspiration!!

    right, ive got a standard astra coupe turbo in red. had it for just under a year and i considered selling it as i dont use it enough to justify these ruddy new tax payments next year. but just woke up this morning with a sudden urge to keep it and mod it!

    so, im after some inspiration.

    i wana do some small mods to start with and keep going from there. i like the euro look that some cars have but hate stick on bodykits etc. im after mods that wont make it look 'MODIFIED!!!!!' but more subtle ones to make it look better.

    its been lowered 30mm, so thats a start.

    what about chrome handles and mirrors?
    tints?
    calipers?
    etc

    c'mon, make me wana keep it! (pics would be schweeet too)

    thanks in advance

    Body kit will make it look different.

    Just dont go mad.

    Astra GSi front bumper, deeper side skirts, lower rear vallence and a subtle boot spoiler.

    if it was my car here is what i would do

    GSI front bumper (looks ace on the coupe)

    maybe even GSI snowflakes

    VXR brakes ?

    the rest i would keep clean

    then i would look to cleaning up under the bonnet with some of Glenn Yales finest

    and Glenn also does gaitor and handbrake sets as well
    Ibiza FR CR TDI with 203 BHP
