    Euro styling - tips

    Guten Tag.

    I know this topic has been brought up many times and i didnt find exactly what im looking for using the search.

    Basically i have an imported Opel Astra coupe and i always had my heart set on modding it with bk999's, GSi bumper and slammed.

    BUT.... after seeing some of the way the euro guys do it, its changed my whole view on how to mod a car. So ive decided that i am going euro on my astra coupe . Ive not seen many euro'd up on here so if yours is, then please post it up.

    Im after some ideas as to how i can make my car more euro. Currently ive set my heart upon these babies:


    Artec AD 17" deepdish's - obviously with stretched tires.

    Pictures of my car can be found HERE.

    Other things that i have in mind are:
    • Smoothed factory front bumper with plate pinned to it at the bottom.
    • Shark fin aerial.
    • Colour coded wing mirrors.
    • Slammed all around 60mm front - 70mm back - on coil overs.
    • Front cupra splitter
    • Rear spoiler that come on SE2 models.
    If anyone has any other ideas that can help me please just post up.

    Danke.

    Euro in my eyes is smooth bodywork (So no spoilers and small mirrors etc), very low, and wide deep wheels.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    search for Asrat lol. Rat style is rusty, roof creates etc. Will search HDD for a couple of pictures

    I quite like those alloys, but they look a bit dated now.
