    Lightbulb Hello

    ive been reading the various threads on this site for a while now and thought i'd better introduce myself properly.

    i drive a 1999 astra 1.6 16v. i have already done a couple of things to it but not too much.













    These pics are just after giving it a quick wash n polish.....

    The subs are jbl cs-10's and yes it does need carpeting but just havent got around to it yet.

    any ideas welcome about what to do next..

    Welcome to the site matey, i'll say what is normally said...

    Colour code the bumps and handles (saying this i've still not done mine yet lol) Get some 17's on there and lower it (again not lowered mine yet tho hahaha spotting a pattern yet lol)

    Nice looking car, tho and perfect for getting some work done to it.

    welcome to the club mate

    id colour code the rest of the centre console de-restrict the airbox then the bump strips and handels followed by a spoiler and a nice set of wheels finnished of by lowering that should give you time to think of the next things to do

    get the wheels and lowered before putting a exhaust etc on it as every one around my area seams to buy a car put a body kit on and run around on std alloys or steelies and it just looks silly.

    Welcome mate.

    Got to agree with above, colour code the whole car, makes a big difference. All i did to my old astra (same as yours in black) was colour code everything and put some nice 17's on it and it made the car look quite sporty.
    Second is just first loser.
