    It looks just fine on your car.. I dont see any gap?

    This is a good news,coupe side skirts are better looking then the stock ones..

    But what about the rear bumper?

    Is there any way to fit coupe bumper to hatchback Astra? How much of a modifications are we talking about?

    It's right on the top at the back (near the arch flare), and only really visible when looked at from directly above

    I filled the gap with a thin sliver of plastic off the old sills, and shaped it for a close fit with the body work.. then it got sprayed.

    The GSi uses coupe sills and VX designed the rear arch spats to cover the gap (which I've now got fitted) and TBH it looks better without

    sorry ..

    Vauxhall saved money when introduced the Gsi by fitting the coupe sills to it, but because of the gap they designed some fancy plastic bits to stick on the end of the sills to "hide" it

    these be they...

    And it doesnt look that much diffrent.. Yes =))

    Well i first have to go on a hunt for a complete front bumper and then the side skirts.

    In my opinion rear stock bumper and stock rear stop lamp are the 2 ugliest details.

    I modified my stop lamps,now they r black and look very cool hehe,but the bumper is so damn ugly.. So short blah.. And i dont like those add-on's,or those tuning-styling bumpers..

    A clean look bumper would look so cool,one where the exaust wouldnt be visible,and the smoke would go down,and the bumper would have a smoth shape,sort of a sphere like to match the coupe side skirts,and not like the stock one :S
