    Talking Help Me Modify!

    I've just bought a 199 2.0 mk3 astra CD, and i'm looking for any ideas for modifying it. From interior mods to bodykits, im open to advice/ideas. However, I am VERY limited in my mechanical knowledge, so please, basic terms and explanations only lol!

Also I am VERY limited in my mechanical knowledge, so please, basic terms and explanations only lol!

    Welcome to the club chap, what colour is it?

    A nice tidy cd player and amp/sub allways a nice start, but as said its completely up to you.

    Hi, fallen in love with the idea of a duel exit exhaust system, but every website that I know only make these kind of systems for the mk4. As for ICE setup, I'm going with a ps2 slim, dvd player in the frnt and addition screens in the headrests (found them VERY cheap on ebay already mounted into universal head rests!) along with the usual subs and amps. Currently looking for a mk3 gsi grill but without the vauxhall badge. Found one yesterday, but could only have if I bought the rest of the car!

    What about upgrading the exhaust and putting k&n air filter in to give it more bhp.I personally like bodykits so you could do that..there are some nice ones on ebay but dont buy the cheap ones as there a load of crap.Also what about lowering the car,again you can buy lowering springs off ebay,i used janspeed springs and lowered mine by 40mm and im pleased with the results.Also a nice set of alloys always makes a car i think so you could do that.Hope this helps and enjoy!
