    its possible to get an estate looking like a GSi. the skirts should fit, the front bumper will, clear side repeaters, no probs for ebay, and a GSi grille. and you could probably get an MFD to work with it as well, and ime sure the GSI seats will fit, and you could retrim the front and rear doorcards to match the the GSi ones
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    Mate of mine had the Sideskirts modified to fit a van, so will fit the estate. Rear bumper is the only thing that would need major modification.

    Look phat, but if I were you I'd 5stud and put cav turbo rims on, theres a red estate running round these ends with them on and an XE fitted

    he bought some GSI side skirts, had them cut and extended to match the doors. Due to the van having short doors and a GSI having long doors. Local bodyshop did all the smoothing. Same place that did the Corsa B smoothed euro van if anyone seen it in fast car.

    That blue van looks stunning imo.

    To do a GSi rear bumper would be a nghtmare. Standard hatch bumper is shorter & the estate needs a lower section to accomodate the tailgate.
