    just got my car back from the bodyshop ( before and after pics)

    well ive had this astra for quite a while and since i got it, its gone through major changes.....anyways ill let the pics do the talking......





    then came the vxr alloys, catback exhaust and lowering springs.


    i kept it like this for a few months then i started sourcing all the parts off an sri turbo. after a while of looking i got the parts and got it all sprayed and fitted.





    so as you can see the car has come along way since first buying it, the list of mods to date are:
    • stainless steel cat-back exhaust system.
    • 18" vxr alloys
    • 6000k HIDs
    • tinted front lights ( waiting to fit them)
    • tinted rear lights
    • pressed plates
    • full sri-t body kit.
    • lowered 40mm
    • red calipers all round
    future mods will be:
    • ICE install
    • gloss black alloys
    • tinted windows
    • lowered on coillys
    all comment welcome

    in all fairness, the car was faded at first but not as bad as in the first pic, my camera was abit crappy, id say my car is the same red as in the 2nd lot of photos.
