    Astra hatches with coupe front bumpers and W.H.Y rears!

    I need some inspiration!!

    When my insurance is renewed in february it allows me to do a lot of things i could before in modifying terms!

    i wanna get a coupe front bumper as i only have black bumpers at the mo, and dont wanna get the GSI bumper as it would be quite pricey and im on a bit of a budget! so could you show me your hatches wiv coupe bumpers as they arent as common as GSI ones!

    i also wanna do something with the back too, as again it only has the standard blacb one, so if anyone has any ideas, post them up! i wanna stay OE but be a bit different!!

    coupe front bumper
    middle grill removed,
    Irmscher air dam fogs
    Steinmetz front splitter
    Steinmetz flippers

    all smoothed in Coupe bumpers look great on the hatch and a cheap easy mods can be done to them

    For 2001 it looked ok, there was little to no choice around at that time. As far as I know I was the first to fit a coupe bumper to a hatch (UK as Tim in Belguim did it first iirc) so it was different enough for the time

    this is the look i wanna go for! i wanna get a set of coilovers, wheels, bumpers, not go overboard. but i keep asking myself is it worth spending the money on the car i have! have a look at my garage, gna need a fair bit of colour coding, and the colour is not the usual, but i did see a modded astra in this colour and it looked alrite! i wanna keep it standard looking, im not into anything over the top, euro is the look that really appeals to me, big bodykits and loud installs, dnt appeal to me, being subtle does!
