    Few questions about my Astra G

    Hey all.

    Ok, few questions.

    My Astra is an estate - what sallon parts fit?
    I'm looking to lower it, only 40mm, do Saloon springs fit?

    Its also a Diesel, (1999) 2.0 turbo, would fitting an intercooler mess up the engine?
    Would it be worth fitting an aftermarket exhaust?

    and would it be better to fit an intercooler, and exhaust before I went for a remap?

    Also, what aftermarket shocks are "the best" I'm after something harder than standard, but nothing as much to knock your fillings out...



    I'm after a bit more poke, fed up of being chased down by Audi's

    Ta all.

    The coupe front bumper and skirts will fit but skirts will need a bit of trimming Not sure about the rear bumper

    If you look on ebay or LMF they will probably list springs for your car

    If you check the diesel section that will give you loads of info on whats best to do engine wise etc

    Sorry i cant be of more help

    raceland coilovers and shocks should do the job nicely for you, as for the bodywork, im not too sure what fits, though all astra mk4 front bumpers are interchangeable
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!

    Currently Running MK1 1.8 MX5 with LSD awaiting boost, and a Red UK DC2

    Anyone ot a link for these coilovers?
    When I said about what parts fit, I mean suspention wise?

    I might get a front bumper, and sills, but tbh, I just want it low, wide, and faster lol.

    If I fitted an intercooler, would it actually be worth it without a remap?
