    Astra Coupe Mod time

    Hi all,

    Having had the coupe for a couple of months now its time to make some changes to it and get the modifiying bug again lol. It flew through its MOT yesterday with the only problem being brake discs need replacing in a few thousand miles lol.

    I am thinking the following but need some advice on brands and suppliers. The car is the 2.2 coupe:

    Exhaust - Dont want anything stupidly loud and Cat back
    Suspension - Which springs and looking at a 30mm drop as 18 inch wheels will be fitted
    Rear boot spoiler - Anyone know of a cheap supplier of these??

    Also will the front bumper of a Mk4 GSI fit the astra coupe as I have my eye on one at the moment.

    ANy help will be much appreciated

    Cheers

    Thanks for the response mate, much appreciated.
    The bumper will be mine then lol.
    I shall have a look into the suspension side of things as my mrs drives the car each day and we have a little lad so dont want a harsh ride for him.
    I shall keep my eyes pinned for a spoiler

    The main mod i want to achieve is the engine, currently saving for a Z20LET engine conversion but that will be in a few months.
