Almoust Two years ago (200, I decided to change the car a little bit bigger one from Yaris to Astra.
Main reason was our new dog what needed more space. Second reason was that I want more power. Car needed to bee 5 door or estate. But because estates are so heavy weight i start looking 5 door cars.
I find one what was really good for me.
Color was great, because it wasn't very popular (in Finland) and there was lot of nice features, like...
- AFL lights
- Tyre pressure check system
- and all normal astra mk5 stuff
Best thing was that motor have TURBO
And here it is immediately after purchase (First mod: I take turbo badge off right when i get it home, because i don't want to show my friends that it's turbo):
After some weeks i ordered KN filter and C vectra pipes and installed them.
Then spring coming and i change my summer wheels. Then was also time for next mod. When i purchase this car i knew exatly what car should look like some day and this was first step for that. I painted a black mask.
Bad mobile photo
2008 spring look with 17" summer wheels
Then the car was telling me that i need to change brake pads. So I ordered some brake stuff from ebay
Zimmermann discs and EPC pads
New brake parts not brought any improvement, but they looks beter and maybe there wasn't as much brake dust.
One other day our dog start to eat my car. So i need to install protective grill.
More coming soon...
