    Virgin Modifier

    Ive never touched anything to do with modding my astra in anyway, infact I don't even know were to begin actually.

    I have a 03 Astra Club 1.6 5door

    I love it to peices even though it may not be the best astra of its day. I had a quick scan around the courtenay sport website as I was perhaps thinking of getting some decent discs and pads and the breaks arent the best. They don't seem to do anything related to a car as 'powerless' as mine however.

    Just really looking for some ideas of tips or things you would do in my situation to perhaps improve the performance slightly or some little tweak to perhaps something to set it apart from others in either the interior or exterior.

    Basically im really looking for a beginners guide to getting started really haha.

    the list of things u can do to ur car is pretty much endless lol, just depends on how much u want to spend. e.g. u could just get some green stuff brake pads, or u could go for discs and pads?, or big brakes upgrade. Performance, hmmm where do u begin? for slight inmprovments u could get a panal filter or induction kit. You could get a new exhaust system. or for big performance gains u could get a bigger engine put in. As i said tho it depends how much you want to spend.

    well u can do the vectra c air intake mod, theres a how to on here somewhere, that with a panel filter is a fairly good mod, helps ur car breathe a lil better. and at very little cost, the veccy c parts cost about £15 and a panel filter is about £40
