    My Europa Blue Coupe Turbo.

    My first Astra was a Verde 2.2 coupe Bertone Edition which i sold for a civic type r (big mistake), and after 10 months was bored and uninterested in it.





    so i traded it in for my coupe turbo. it took me 3 months to find one to fit my exact specification.





    after waiting what seemed like ages (2weeks) i picked it up 2 days before going to billing in July 2008. it was fully standard apart from some interior bling.

    First thing to be changed was the grille as its a quick and easy way to make it look non standard.

    As i had some paint left over after painting the drums and calipers on my mini, I decided to colour code them on the astra aswell as its quite a good match.





    Then it was time to give it a good clean.

    Replaced the Green filter for an Apexi one. much better sound and look.

    Coilovers fitted (raceland ones) cos i was really embarrased with it being on stilts. 50mm drop front and rear gives a stance i like, and enough ground clearance (just) to clear speed bumps.

    finally got some more bits. I made myself a carbon plug cover and got a courtenay boost pipe. all fully detailed (first time since owned lol) so looking much better.

    Well not much has been done for a while other than enjoyong it.

    While at trax, was voted runner up in the AOC top 15!!!


    today it finally has had new bits fitted

    todays job was precat pipe and hoffman 200 cell sports cat. My standard flexi was mullered (must raise coilovers up a bit more lol) and was leaking so killed 2 birds with one stone.

    All on and what a difference, sorry no pics as it was raining and very heavily.

    only pic is from Castle Combe and Trax.

    Thanks to willbaroo for the first pic.
