    As said, breakers yards, ebay or places such as LMF. To go for the full VXR look you'll need:

    front bumper, complete with grilles (you can use your SRi fogs)
    grille
    rear bumper
    exhaust (due to it being centre exit - back box only should do it)
    skirts (same as fitted to the SRi iirc)
    rear spoiler (different from the std SRi one)
    steering wheel
    gearknob (only if you've gox a 6 speed box though)
    seats (front and back so it matches)
    Piano black centre console (by far the best)
    debadge the boot.
    and VXR wheels, either the 18" snowflakes, or the 19's (or even BK999 VXR replicas in 18")
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I priced this up before on my car, and all these prices are 2nd hand and may need painting (depending on colour and condition), also these are prices from 4-5month ago, so they may have changed

    Front bumper = £350 - inc grille fogs etc
    Rear bumper = £150
    Exhaust standard = £50
    Spoiler = £100
    Skirts = £120
    Interior seats = £600-1000
    19" VXR Alloys = £800 inc tyres

    Plus daft extras if you really want them to finish the car off would probz cost another £100

    I decided not to do it, and just put the money towards buying a VXR instead lol
