    My SXI 1.6 16V

    So, here we go, i used to own a corsa b 1.2 as my first car

    Heres a few picsof her:




    anyway on to the astra:

    so i decided to sell my corsa after months of work and ££££'s spend as it was too slow and i didnt want to go through the whole C20LET conversion, plus i wanted a bigger car, as i wanted to stay vauxhall i started browsing at what they had to offer me, was looking at vectras etc. then i started looking at astras, im not a big fan of the mk3 astras, so it had to be the mk4 as they are gorgeous, plus i cant afford a mk5 lol

    so as i was browsing for a new car i came across this on piston heads





    so after a few phone calls and £1600 later, it was mine, by the way thats a great bargain if you ask me lol.

    Few specs.

    62,000 miles
    V Reg

    That's all you really need to know lol!

    So after the 40 odd mile drive home and after a good wash because she was filthy, here she is:





    Mods As She Stands:

    Prodrive Front Bumper
    SRI-T Rear Bumper
    Magnex Oval BackBox
    17" Coupe Alloys
    5 Stud Conversion
    Tinted Headlights.

    That's Enough For The Moment.

    Cheers

    Update

    So i decided to go for the blue led conversion:




    Also note my new tax disc holder, its an angel eye

    I brought some irmsher chrome heater rings off fleebay

    Piccies.




    Also note the little blue button where the cigarette lighter normally is, you press that and hey presto, a whole lot of 1.6 power lol!

    ICE Time:

    So i decided to fit my 6X9s

    Cut the holes and fitted them in



    And now some wiring


    Started from here



    Had to feed the wires through a tiny hole into the boot like so



    Et voila one working speaker

    Put it all back together


    and repeat on the other side! lol



    Et voila two working speakers

    which makes a total of 8 now

    2 6X9s
    2 In the rear
    2 door speakers
    and 2 tweeters in the front

    That will do for the moment

    and also some electric blue gaitors courtesy of glen yale, and thanks to jam for bringing them down for me!!



    So, my new stickers arrived from MVOC (would of got some AOC ones but i was already a member with MVOC before i joined here)





    So anyway, a typical sunday afternoon, i decided i was going to refurb my alloys, like a dope i forgot to take some pics of how they was before, but im sure you all know what kurbed alloys look like, so after a quick clean off came the wheel



    and in my garage after a little rubbing down and abit of fillter and a lot of masking tape lol



    Did this on both of my front wheels as the rear wheels are fine

    Finished Product:



    After browsing through Halfords one saturday afternoon i purchased these, nothing major but thought i might aswell stick it up

    my Vaux airfresher



    And also some Auto Glym products, this was a bargain at £20 for the lot



    Cheers for Now
