After owning a Black 1.8 sxi hatchback for about a year I moved onto a Black 1.8 coupe.
I bought it in May 2005:
It was pretty plain but luckily had several extras already like the black and white leather
interior, the spoiler, exhaust and the very rare sunroof.
The first mod was replacing the grill with an Irmcher one which I just swapped over from my
hatchback. This is what it looked like at my first astra sport meet in July 2005:
4 people from the south west region! Apparently was the second ever south west meet.
The first had 2 people! The 2 old RO's are on the left and the red van was a guy from Bristol
who was never to be seen again.
Next thing was fitting an irmscher splitter purchased from a guy off the forum (after I got it
Lining up the splitter with masking tape! Continued to tweak the angle so it didn't look like it
was nose diving.
Bumper was off the car for the night for the glue to set then fitted the following evening.
Think it was fitted in about November hence the dark.
