    Unusual colour?

    Hi folks,

    heres a pic of my astra coupe turbo, Not my first, second or 5th choice of colour but I had it bought for me...



    I havent seen ANY other coupe this colour (although theres bound to be a few about)

    I was hoping to give it abit of styling I did want to go down the black alloys/headlight/tail light route but unsure if it would suit..

    Any accent colour suggestions? I was also thinking of maybe spraying the spoiler black and maybe a bit of black vinyl on the roof and bonnet?

    Its chianti red - quite a rare colour. There a few members with it, the most high profile being Johnastra16v - his was featured in Total Vauxhall last year.

    Dont be negative about the colour its great and different

    Yeah thats the same colour as mine!! Its stunning imo, but i would say that its my colour, lol!!

    I love the fact that its just got so many shades depending on how you catch it.

    I have done my wheels in dark grey, and I am going with smoked side repeters, black angel eyes eventually.

    So i think what you would have planned would look good!!

    Its a lovely colour! Only other one I am aware of belongs to Tiny T. She has recently had the wheels resprayed a dark gun metal grey colour and looks really nice. She has also recently had it re-sprayed the same colour. IMO, definately better with the darker wheels!:

    :-D I knew it would be a little bit of a rare beast, I first saw it at night and the colour looked mental! Im loving the euro smoothness atm, but then again i also like the motorsport look, but I shall try n find a nice balace. Those grey wheels look awsome!

    p.s. anybody know how expensive vinyling is? Iv never really thought about it untill now...
