    hi,

    for irmscher bits look on www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk or www.irmscher-bits.com they arn't cheap but are worth it,
    car looks good, excellent for a 19 year old,

    how did it get the XP wheels but no XP kit?
    Drives - 08 Astra SRi XP 1.9CDTi 150

    Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

    Cheers m8,

    i gt the car from a local arnold clarke dealer who had it brought down from edinburgh, wasn't expectin it to arrive with the 18's but it did, so don't know the story behind them but i ain't complaining.

    cheers for the links, i'll check them out.

    ye i feel brilliant drivin it, had it about 3 months, upgraded from a 1.0 corsa C LOL

    im considerin an xp kit, jus need to check the insurance, not like they can charge me much more than they already are!

    Cheers

    Your insurance can put the XP kit down as a factory fitted option.

    welcome to the club mate. chances are the previous owner just ordered an SRi and opted for 18's, thy're available as an optional extra.

    I'd be wary about that ebay kit, there's not actual pics of it, just press pictures of the nurburgring.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    vxr body kit

    cheers for that keith

    great idea, i've noticed thers an insurance forum which iv posted a thread to dan at adrian flux to see if he can help me out.

    that is an excellent price on the vxr kit aswel, a lot cheaper than what vauxhall charge for the xp kit.

    just on the verge of ordering an irmscher grill.

    i was in bidding for a colour coded vxr grill which i lost because i was at work

    i do prefer the irmscher tho.

    how much would this affect my insurance? (vxr kit)
