    Some pointers please

    Just not too sure what direction to go in first so thought i'll ask for some pointers from the Astra guru's. My Astra is a MK4 54 Plate Enjoy 1.4 16v and performance mods of any size or scale are kind of off my mind as its pretty pointless. My main aim was to modify the exterior of the car but not sure what to do first.

    Firstly I either wanted to get some alloys and lower the car around 30mm front and back. Its currently got some standard 15" Vauxhall alloys, which i would probably keep if they were 17". So wasnt sure whether to lower the car first or get the alloys first? Secondly I wanted to get the windows tinted and a spoiler fitted, originally was looking at the Irmscher spoiler but then saw a nice either sri/gsi spoiler. Not sure where to purchase one from and how durable they are quality wise... so if anyone can comment and provide links be most grateful.

    Lastly any links to a nice bodykit to match and also I've got drum brakes on the rear is it worth upgrading to discs? And what sort of price am i looking at?

    Thanks if i'm wrong anywhere i apologise and if you have any better idea's i'm all ears been saving for a while to kind of do it all in one big hit.
    Kind Regards,

    Dean

    it is a replica, but a few people on here have bought the and they're good quality, plus, you can always trust LMF, never had any problems with them at all.

    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
