    Best Place to buy?

    Hey

    So hopefully I will be picking up my new Astra SXi mk4 on friday

    I'm I'm not going to hang around, I've saved a lot of petrol moeny over the past month with not driving so I'm ready to buy a few "stylish" mods for my car... I would like to do the following, they are fairly common, but where is the best, and cheapest place to buy these?

    1) Euro Lights?
    The kind where there is no orange tint for the indicators? just 2 x white strips?

    2) Black bumper strips, and door handles
    I know that people put back to black on these, and have them sprayed, but I am sure I have heared you can buy OPC ones ready made?
    I like the ones that aren't 'greay' from fading, they match the body colour

    3) New Grill... Had an irmscher one on my last car, was thinking of either a mesh one? or an Opel OPC grill?

    4) I have a black Irmscher spoiler ready for my car, although it is sapphire black, and my new car is "metallic" black? do you think you will even eb able to tell the difference?

    5) All Blue (or polar white) L.E.D conversion inside the car ( door switches, head light switch, clock dials, MFD which i already have the clear diffuser for btw ), heater dials, and interior light i know oddjob is probably the best man to see about these?


    Thanks Guys

    Sapphire Black is much different to the other Midnight Black, you will be able to tell the difference...though did they make the SXi in Midnight Black? Thought it only came in Red, Prestige Blue or Sapphire Black when I got mine in 2002...

    I really want the OPC grille too. Cheapest I've seen is £80 on eBay or LMF. If you see one cheaper, please let me know! I really want one but cant afford £80 on a grille (well not yet anyway... )

    If your car is black, save money by not colour coding the bump strips. Just use a heat gun/hair dryer to lift the oils out of the plastic and bring back the black shine. Failing that, I've heard of people using the Kiwi parade gloss used to give mirror shines to shoes.

    Yup, Ken (Oddjob) is the man to talk to about LED conversions. Shoot him a PM

    IMO they're the nicest grilles out there, other than maybe the lexmaul. I would like to see the OPC grille with a Vx griffen, I think that would look even better
