    Smile My 1.9CDTI

    Hi Guys, I've been on the forum a few months now, joined shortly after buying my Astra MK5 in Feb due to a couple of issues but really loving the site and the people. Anyway, since buying the car, the first thing I did was to tint the rear windows, here's how it looked standard with just the tints:







    So, last month I managed to get ahold of a Lexmaul front splitter off the bay for a decent price, also managed to pick up some headlight brows for a bargain price of £10 and then bought some sideskirts as well. After some trouble with getting the splitter to fit, everything has finally fallen into place. Here is a sneak peak of the car as I was washing it last nite:



    It still needs a bit of polishing which I will be hoping to do this weekend and the brows need a slight touch up. Other then that I am chuffed as it does make the car look a lot beefier (mates' words) and hopefully stand out a bit from the crowd! I'll post up some more pics once everything is polished up and looking nice. Oh, and I do know I need to put a skirt on the rear, but I haven't seen anything I like yet, plus funds are short after all the above Let me know what you think

    Smile Update

    OK, so finally got round to cleaning the car today and boy is my back hurting! The car was:

    Washed
    Clayed
    Washed
    Polished with SRP
    Finished with Megs NXT Gen Wax

    Unfortunately, by the time I'd buffed off the wax, it was past 9, I took a few pics, sorry for the bad light it was getting dark but I hope you get the idea
